Well... i am willing to help, problem is that you do not give what manufacturer and what model of the motherboard.

most of motherboards manufactured after year 2000 use button lithium battery, you will spot it as a silver disk about 1/2" to 3/4", where it is located exactly on the motherboard, it is your quest, you did not give model or manufacturer...

changing bios batery will erase all content of the bios and return it to the manufacturers settings. therefore if you make any changes to the bios, you should take note what and where so you can re-enter them.

procedure for removal:

1. switch off computer
2. remove power cable from power unit
3. wait at least 20sec
4. remove side of the computer case so you can see motherboard
5. locate battery as described above
6. push batery slightly towards the latch, battery should slide out easy, sometime bit lift on opposite side of latch is required
7. purchase new battery, exactly same type and replace in reverse to the removal procedure
8. connect power cord
9. switch on computer

if you made before changes to bios:

10. access bios and re-enter correct settings
11. reboot and use computer as before.

if you find these direction helpfull, give me your vote, if you need more clarification, please post what motherboard and model of it.

On most desktops, it will be located on the motherboard, sitting in a slot socket. These batteries look like nickels and sit in the socket with their positive side up. They are usually held in place by a tension spring.

If you have a laptop, then the battery maybe accessible through an access door on the bottom of the case. These batteries can also be a disc type battery sitting in a slot or it can have a special covering with a small cable attached to it, this small plug attaches into a socket. In some cases, the laptop has to be disassembled in order to remove or observe the battery.

Where is the cmos battery located on the samsung r60 plus


Glad to HELP YOU!

As a rule of thumb: for laptops/notebooks/netbooks the CMOS battery is located under the keyboard. So you have to remove the keyboard in order to reach the CMOS battery.
Here I've found for you a nice video that will show you everything in detail.

GOOD LUCK!

Hi,

what you replace is not the CMOS, but the CMOS battery.

On an ACER from those years the CMOS battery looks like a coin, or a coin wrapped in plastic and connected to the motherboard.

On most models from same series the battery is located on the lower side of the motherboard, like on picture below:

On some model the battery may be located underneath the keyboard.

Here disassembly instructions for a similar model.

CMOS


The cmos on the Pavilion is going to be in one of three places, and will be one of two styles of battery. The cmos style will be either a large watch type battery about the size of a nickle located in a slot on the mother board, or in a yellow or greenish pouch with two wires leading to a connector, located under a cover on the bottom of the machine, or under the keyboard.
