Hi
You shouldn't need to remove the board to change the battery.
Just to be sure,this is a desktop and not a laptop,right?
If so,remove the side panel,or open the case if it opens without panels coming off.You'll see the battery somewhere on the board,it's about the size of a quarter and will be a CR2032.Just remember which side goes in first.

My pcv-w20 has been sitting over a year, the lcd monitor show's the desktop and operates normal except that theres no light to the screen (had to use a flashlight to see it) just went dark one day! ...


There is a $20 part called the "inverter" that has failed.
Add $50 to $75 for a qualified video/TV technician to disassemble the LCD, replace the part, reassemble, and test it.
