I must replace the battery in my PC. Are there any special precautions I must take before doing so.
Thank you

I usually go into the BIOS b4 a battery replacement, check/jot down any settings that are specific to the machine, shutdown, pull the power cable, swap batteries, replug, fire the hummer up, go into the bios, recheck the settings, save and boot.

when you go back into the BIOS, be sure to reset your date and time............ or be like me and wonder why two weeks later, all the date stamps were strange.
