Try cleaning all the corrosion off the battery contacts and motherboard. If the corrosion has removed the circuit board tracks then it is beyond repair.

Alert! system battery voltage is low

Hello there and welcome to fixya
This is a very common issue with these desktop units the cmos battery will only last from 2 t0 5 years depending on how it is used.
This battery sits on the motherboard so you will want to first unplug the computer then remove the outer cover to expose the internal parts then look for a coin sized silver battery that looks like a watch battery then replace the battery with a new one
radio shack has these then power up the computer and you will have to reset the time and date ok you will get a error about this. here is what the battery looks like

How much is asus ee pc cmos bios battery?

You need to be more specific about the model, but cmos batteries are generally 3V buuton cell type. Some are fitted into sockets on the motherboard, but most laptops have one covered in heat-shrink plastic and with a flying lead to connect to the motherboard. To get a proper ASUS battery specific to your laptop will probably cost between £15 & £30 pounds but if you are technically minded you could buy a 2032 button cell for no more than £5 and replace the battery inside the heat-shrink plastic. I would check the voltage of the existing cmos battery first though because it may not be faulty. If the voltage is less than 2V then it will not work properly but if the voltage is above 2.5V then it is not faulty and does not require replacing. Between 2V & 2.5V is a bit of a grey area but may cause intermittent problems depending on the laptop. These batteries are designed to last at least 5 to 6 years (usually the life of the laptop) because under normal use the cmos will be maintained by the main power source (the laptop battery). I have never changed the cmos battery in my desktop PC or in my laptop, both of which are over 5 years old.

Put game disk in but game dosent play, goes dirrectly to settings such as time,date,ect

Sounds like the CD tray is not closing. Did you replace your battery? The battery is called a CR-2032. You can get this kind of battery at most stores that sell watch batteries. Take off the back panel and remove the battery. Insert the new one, replace the cover, and test it. If that didn't work, try opening up your Saturn by unscrewing the 5 screws on the bottom. Turn it over an then check the top-left corner, next to the part you plug your power cable into. There is a small switch that the CD cover presses on, try holding it down while you turn it on with a game in it and the top half of the case off. The game should spin and play. If you tape it down, it should work. Put the Saturn back together and there go, you just fixed your Saturn.

My dell beeps 4 times when plugged in, but won't come on.

4 beeps of equal lenght suggest that system timer is not working, you need to change cmos battery on your computer. If you are game, that is how you change CMOS battery on your computer, takes about 5min, required tool is phillips screwdriver:

1. Switch off computer, remove power cord
2. Remove left hand cover (this is cover which is on lyour left while you stand in front of the computer)
3. As you look at computer "gizzards" on right hand on the motherboard you will see silver battery about nickel size, it is located in this computer about three finger width from the bottom of the motherboard and about 1 1/2 finger width from right edge of the motherboard. Unlatch it and remove it. Purchase exactly same battery, be it in drugstore or hardware store.
4. Slide in new battery, + is up, towards you.
5. Mount back side cover
6. Re-connect your power cable and start the computer

You most probablay will need to re-program BIOS as all information is lost when this particular battery die.

This should solve your CMOS batery problem. Of course you can send your laptop to the technician but that will be no fun at all... ;-)

Flash wont work and lightning bolt flashes when trying to take the picture

The flashing lightning bolt is your camera telling you it's trying to charge the flash but can't get enough power from the battery. Is the battery old...been charged many times...neglected and left to completely discharge? Any of these things can reduce the capacity of a battery.

Have had camera for over 2 years with no problem - now it won't turn on - could it be battery? Tried to charge for over 24 hours - no success

Yes, it could be the battery. It's two years old and if you ever neglected it and let it completely discharge, then it will never hold a full charge again.
