You can buy this battery in any electronic store, take the battery out of the motherboard and ask for the same battery, there ate two types with varied thickness, and its easy to install it. Just like installing a battery in the calculator.

Does any batteries support any sort of motherboards

Any brand of CMOS battery will work on any motherboards as long as it has the same size. Make sure to bring your CMOS battery when buying a new to make sure the size is the same.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FIXYA.

I have a Monorail Model 7245 computer from the late 90's. When I turn it on it says CMOS battery low and it wants me to boot from A drive. Where is CMOS battery located and how do I replace? Thank you in...

The CMOS battery will be in one of two places....

Start out by looking around where the keyboard connector is.

First- Most common is a "button" battery mounted on the motherboard. Most common is a CR2025- a little smaller than a quarter. It will be held in by a spring clip that either uses very tiny philips screws or can be popped out with a small screwdriver.
Sometimes on a motherboard the battery will be about the size of a M&M laying flat or a sideways Jolly Rancher, and soldered to the board. These can be difficult to replace, and are best left to a technician.

The second location is on the inside of your computer case.....mounted on a small square of velcro- this battery will look somewhat like a small 9 volt battery, with a red and black wire going into a connector on your motherboard. For this type you will need to go to a computer specialty store or Radio Shack, and it simply plugs in where the old one came out from.

What is the maximum capacity of harddisk that can support by biostar M7VKS MB (AMD Duron)

It is not about the motherboard but more so about the operating system. If you're using windows XP with SP1 or higher there is no real limit. Windows 98 can see a max of 64GB & windows 98SE, 137GB. Win XP can see a max of 2 exobytes.
(What is 1exobyte?, EB. In decimal terms, an exabyte is a billion gigabytes). Setting up you're drive properley is also very, very important. Download the hard disk drives manufacture setup software. Only connect the new HDD. Create either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD from the manufactors site. Boot to the floppy or CD and set up the HDD. This includes sector size FAT NTFS ECT. You will also be able to format the new HDD. When installing windows do not allow windows to format the disk. (Leave it as is). Make sure you're new drive is shown in you're bios before installing windows xxx.

Can anyone help me on how to reset the Bios password to default on an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop? I have an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop. It is booting but it cant go beyond bios boot and i cant enter setup as it is...

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds
