Where is the CMOS battery?

Hi, where is the CMOS battery located?
I replaced small battery under the modem, but problem is not solved.
What is happend? Always after shutting down and turning on, evrything appears, like first turn on. Does not remember any set ups.
So I replaced small lithium 3volt battery under modem. But the problem was not solved. Now I think, mait be this was not the CMOS battery.Is this the CMOS battery?
Thanks, Marian

Disconnect the power cable from the computer and remove the battery pack from the computer.

Close the screen and turn the computer upside-down. Locate the modem/combo card compartment on the right side of the computer (adjacent to the modem/telephone and network cable ports).


  • 4 Remove the two screws on the modem/combo card compartment cover and take the cover off.
  • 5 Remove the modem/combo card from the compartment, disconnect the cables and set the card aside. The CMOS battery is now visible.
  • 6 Disconnect the CMOS battery cable from its connector and remove the battery from the compartment.
  • 7 Replace the CMOS battery, and reassemble the laptop by performing the previous steps in reverse order.

    Most people will notice the cmos batter is flat when they receive an error during post just after turning the pc on. This is a warning tell you the settings were lost, replacing the battery will not put them back. After replacing the battery go into bios by pressing delete/f2/f10 as instructed by your bios, choose the 'load defaults' option, then set the time and day, then 'save and exit'

    You will find the CMOS battrey under the modem. Turn laptop up side down, it is in left, lower corner. Battrey you can buy in any electrinic shop, but dont go by laptop name, go by battrey number. It cost 5.00$
    Good luck, Marian.

    The CMOC battery is rechargeable, it will take time to reach full charge. It is being charged while the laptop is under charge, but may take a few hours. However, if the charging circuit is gone there is a whole other problem, a replacement of that is a bit harder. Check the main battery as well, by going into the Display Properties, screen saver and hit the power button. Run the calibration on the main battery to see how well it does. In most cases when one goes down the other is not far behind.

    Good luck,

    Derick B.

    How do I change cmoss battery? THNX


    The cmos battery is usually a dime shaped battery located on the motherboard inside the computer. It is normally just held in place by a small piece of metal that is under pressure. Open the pc and locate the battery. The location on the motherboard will vary depending on the manufacturer. Use a small screwdriver to release the pressure on the metal piece and the battery should pop out. Always replace with the same model of battery, it will be written on the top of it.

    Where isw the cmos battery


    it's inside the computer, it's a small round, flat, silver battery similar to those in watches and tons of other devices. It stores the clock time when the computer is shut off. You will need to take apart the laptop carefully in order to get to it. Is your clock getting reset everytime you turn it back on? Then yes you will need to replace the battery.

    Date/time screen always shows up upon startup. Does not remember date/time entered.


    Your camera needs a small CMOS battery replacement which saves date, time and maintains these settings even when your camera is off. Look on to the sides of the camera, there will be a small rubber flap which has this battery. You need to replace this small coin-like battery. This battery is not the same as you always use/charge. If you can't locate the small battery, you will find more information in the camera Manual in troubleshooting or camera diagram.

    How do I replace a dead cmos on acer 4520LCi travelmate laptop? The laptop no longer keeps track of system time when shut off completely. Can you tell me the exact location of the cmos so I can be able to...


    Hi,

    what you replace is not the CMOS, but the CMOS battery.

    On an ACER from those years the CMOS battery looks like a coin, or a coin wrapped in plastic and connected to the motherboard.

    On most models from same series the battery is located on the lower side of the motherboard, like on picture below:

    83493ee.jpg

    On some model the battery may be located underneath the keyboard.

    Here disassembly instructions for a similar model.

    Always reverts to 1900


    This indicates that the cmos battery is dead and needs replaced. The cmos is located under the main battery, it's in a yellow or greenish pouch with two wires leading to a connector. You'll have to remove the keyboard in order to get to the connector. Replacing the cmos will correct the time and date problem, if it doesn't fix the battery problem, you may need to go to IBM's support site and download the power management driver.

    Gateway 450rog cmos battery


    The CMOS battery is located on the motherboard, just under the bottom left side of the keyboard, by the letter 'V". It looks like a clock battery, marked 3V (volts). The battery comes out of its "cage/connector" by gently lifting it with a small flat screwdriver. Replacement CMOS batteries are inexpensive and readily available at any computer shop. Hope that helps

    SONY VAIO CMOS BATTERY LOCATION


    Correction...

    The CMOS battery is located under the system board, and is not accessible from under the keyboard.

    The keyboard has to be removed in order to change the CMOS batter, (another reason why I don't like Sony laptops.)

    Below is the batter I just pulled from a user's VGN-FS660\W 892cbd5.jpg
