Computer button battery
 
For the last three days I have had to reset my computer time and date
It will always go's back to I guess the manf. date 2001.
I'm sure this is caused by the computer battery in side the case ?

If you agree I will collect my tools and see if I can do this right ?

Any other ideas ? :whistling2:

If it IS the battery, be sure you don't go to a computer store to buy a new one.... they charge $14.00 at a place here for the same battery you can get at the office supply chain store for $2.00.....
Just pull the one you have and take it with you to match the #s.

Usually, no tools are necessary for a MB battery once you open the case.

Yep, probably just the CMOS battery.

Easy replacement. You can spot the battery a mile away on any given motherboard; just depress the metal tab and the battery pops right out.

Not all computers use the 'button' battery. Some use batterys that have leads and a connector at the end.
These ones are not likely to be found at an office supply store. :huh:

I have only seen those on antique MBs though.... not any newer ones.
Not to say they don't still use them though.

They aren't common, I admit. The last one that I did see was in a Sony laptop.
I'm working on a HP laptop right now, and it uses a buttton battery.

It's almost always a CR2032 lithium cell.
