Question about Computers & Internet
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.
