Most batteries are shipped and sold with a "staple charge" which is generally 65 to 50 percent, though some OEM laptop batteries shipped with a machine can be 100%

Generally you do want to charge the battery, first you would want to do a full charge for 12 to 16 hours to stabilize the SMART circuits that measure charge capacity. But think of the battery like a body in that it needs regular exercise to stay in shape. Good practices are if you plan on storing the battery for long term, store it at about half capacity, and it will lose roughly 10-15% per month. If you always use the laptop plugged in do NOT keep the battery in the system until you plan to use it portably. 100% for too long can actually make the regulators "forget" what empty is and cause you to shut down when you actually still have some juice left. And although it is good to do an occasional deep discharge, do not let the battery get under 20% often, as this will really be the end of good storage.

Where is the cmos battery on the Averatec 3200


I can't find step by step instructions for dismantling your laptop (I found them for a Toshiba), but in general the CMOS battery on any PC is on the motherboard (this includes laptop motherboards). You'll have to take the system apart, including taking the keyboard out, etc. etc. to get to it. Take a look at how a Toshiba 6100 is taken apart for an example: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba6100/Toshiba_Satellite_Pro6100_dismantle_1.htm It's not for the faint of heart so I'd recommend taking it to a local repair shop ...
