I think my computer (2.5 yrs old) needs a new battery; the clock is erratic and scheduled tasks don't work. As I have little expertise in the field of BIOS setting would it be possible to change the battery with the computer under power? I understand there would be a risk of frying something but what if I were to be very careful? Does any clued up person have an opinion as to the likely success.
Thanks for your helpful replies. I have read dozens of useful threads on the subject but was unsure as to how to access all the various BIOS screens to write down the settings so that I could re-enter them when I had changed the battery. As is often the case the answer was simple;'read the users manual',this I have done and have successfully changed the battery and reset the BIOS.There is even a picture of the CR2032 battery in the booklet. In future I promise to try and work things out before asking for help.
