The motherboard or main board is the is the large circuit board inside the machine that everything attaches to. You will have to completely disassemble the machine. Don't let this frighten you, just go slow and keep everything in order. If you do it yourself and it works, great, if not, then take it to a shop. I came across this Quote recently, don't know who said it, but I think it's perfect. "Keep in mind that amateurs built the Ark, but professionals built the Titanic, don;t be afraid to try" Here's a link to download a service guide for the 600x. It has diagrams to give you a better idea of what you're doing.

How can I get my mother's drivers license number for free

Hi Tyler:
Probably the easiest would be to take her to the nearest Government Agent's office (or wherever they issue the licences)
and explain to them that you need a replacement.
They should be able to enter her name into their computer and get the licence number.
Another possibility would be to check the registration of any vehicle that she owns. Usually the drivers license number is recorded on it.
Hope this helps.

How to replace CMOS battery from dg41 mother board

It's easy, but If you haven't ever taken a computer apart or performed any elementary PC repair, Don't try to do anything like this as you might hurt your PC.

  1. Buy a CR2032 battery from a watch shop/electronics shop/computer shop.
  2. Unplug the computer from the power source and ground the computer's chassis with a piece of wire (Safety measure to protect computer from ESD).
  3. Open computer chassis.
  4. Find the battery on the motherboard (exact location can differ between different motherboards): nipunag.jpg
  5. Squeeze outwards the small metal tab that protrudes from near the battery's edge to make the old battery pop out.
  6. Place the new battery in the same place ( + sign facing up)
There. You're done.
