Does anyone know where it is located on the motherboard?
Also what type of cell battery is it?
The RTC battery model is:
Lithium rechargeable battery - Mitsubishi CR2032 - 2.5-3.0V - 210mAh
I'm searching ...
Thanks for that info.
Did you find the location?
I found the information but I have no picture. The RTC battery is located behind the motherboard.
You may want to note that the Battery on that model isn't user Replaceable and one reason it isn't easy to get to....
If you need to change it because it won't take charge from your system that is installed to keep it fresh, You will have to be able to remove loads of connections from your system. Almost everything on your computer will have to be removed to get to the other side of your MB. This will also require you to remove the Fans, Heatsinks from your CPU and then when you reinstall will need to clean an reapply some Thermal Grease
I haven't been in one for along time 2 or 3 years now. but if I can remember right you will need to remove somewhere around 35 to 40 screws and 17 or 18 connections from the MB and case. This also includes removing some tape that holds down wires that connect to different things on the MB. If you don't have a ESD Strap and mat I would say it is important to get one. Also if you don't know how to Solder, I am not sure that you would want to try and take on this job as well...
It is your system and you can do what you like. But I think there is loads of things that can go wrong. Even being careful and trying to put it all back something could have been forgotten and then it all has to come back out again. I would take lots of Pictures of your system if you do tackle this. refer to them as you progress. Maybe if you have a Cam and Tripod I would maybe set it up and record what your doing as a way to refer. I mean Pictures are like 1000 words but if you take a picture little to one way or the other it could lead to a mistake... Lucky for me I don't have any friends with any of these systems now days so with any luck I won't have to open another... Change out Ram or even the HDD no problem. Ram much easier then the HDD but once you get into the inside protective plate that once removed exposes the MB I want to avoid.
cmos battery under the motherboard.
what a brilliant pice of engineering.
My system has problems resuming from standby and as of last week wifi adaptor has disappeared. On some reading I saw that it could be related to cmos battery not charging up properly.
