Where is the battery on my Intel 82430i mother board? I found the space where it SHOULD be. But there is no battery there. My clock is all messed up and won't keep the time or date anymore.

There are four possibilities:

1) Cadmium-eating aliens descended during the night, your battery smelt good, they came, ate, and departed.

2) You are seriously schizophrenic: when you go to sleep, 'Igor' takes over your body, and does these things to punish you for not talking to him enough.

3) Your motherboard has a Dallas semiconductor Real Time Clock chip which has a nicad battery built into the chip itself.  You'll need to buy a replacement if this is so.

4) Something else I was not smart enough to think of :)

He's correct, there should be a chip on your board that is real close to the processor that you'll need to remove and replace because it houses the clock and battery both.

You can get product documentation for your intel motherboard from http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/
This should have diagrams of the board showing where the cmos battery is located

jpers,

You know, it's a real pisser when someone answers a question simply reiterating what others have said in a comment before them.
