Laptop bios battery replacement
Posted on 2003-03-24
my laptop is complaining about the motherboard battery, the one which keeps time etc. The battery wasn't a simply pop-out of a slot, but was sort of 'stapled' to the contacts - there are two tiny punctures on either side of the removed battery after I managed to prise the contacts away. How do I go about replacing this battery? Do I need to 'staple' it on likewise - how? - or can batteries be applied with a small amount of solder? The laptop still works without the battery but I don't fancy changing the date/time every I boot it up!
I've received a quote of £250.00 ($400) to replace the battery - which costs £1.50 from a photographic shop!! Hence if possible, I'd like to DIY it. The laptop is a Consul 98 badged as "Pico", a UK brand.
