Sparkmaker: The info at your link is perfect. Can you also provide Gateway's procedure for actually replacing the CMOS battery? I've heard a few horror stories about troubles after replacing the CMOS battery, although I"ve never had a problem doing it on a desktop. Is there a way to access this info on Gateway's site?
