It is a silver disk on your Motherboard.
When replaced cmos settings go back to default. You can copy your settings onto a disk and then reload them.
Or write down the important ones and reset

hope this helps :)

Hi - Post #1 it pretty much what you neet, bit brief.

The battery on the MB is about the size of a quarter but thicker. If you have a MB manual it will show the location. If not it is a unique component. Has a metal spring (curved bent that sits on top to hold it down).

When you get it out (or just read the number) you can purchase a replacement from most jewlry stores, watch repair, office suppily?
