I downloaded the service manual for the d820 an I can't find the CMOS based on their instructions.  I removed the back memory module cover and the memory.  I see no CMOS. Even under the black plastic mobo shield I don't see it.  I know it has one because I have never worked on this oc before an the battery just died.   Help with pics or a video would be great.  Again the service manual on dells site isn't like mine :(
