You will need to remove your system battery.  I don't have a Classic, but that is how we fix it on IPC, IPX, Sparc 20, etc.

So, I can't help you with where to find the battery, but it should be easy to find.  I am never sure how long the system can go without a bettery before it loses the settings.  Typically, I just remove the battery and put it back in the next morning.

Hope this helps.

I'm sure that poljot already tried to locate the system battery. The biggest problem is where it actually is located.

Since I don't have a Classic, I can't help you any more than that.  Maybe someone else can comment on where to find the battery.
