Hi Everyone,

          I am interested in any direct video link or links illustrating the steps for replacing a defective BIOS/RTC battery.  The term given for this is also known as CMOS battery if I am not mistaken.  

            Any help regarding this post will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

            George

it is a coin cell (CR3022) that can be taken out of the socket
that's really all you have to do -  and pop in the new one
at boot up - it will have lost it's settings, and returned to the default ones, so you should setup date, and probably disk data (though in most cases, after a reboot the devices were seen and reinstalled)
of course - if specific changes need to be made to the bios, that is up to you still

Hi Everyone,

            Thanks so much for the shared input given to this post,  I especially appreciate the multimedia or audio/video links given which illustrate the procedures for replacing a CMOS battery.  The clips certainly did help in putting  all of this together for me by making it clearer.

             Many thanks once again.
