Tips for a great answer:
If there is no charge from the CMOS battery, or little charge even, you will notice your clock set to 12:00 and the date to Jan. 1 every time you start your computer.
Your computer will also ask you where it should boot from when you turn it on.
These are the most basic signs your CMOS battery is going dead and will be your ultimate test of the battery
(some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in)
hope this helps
