A friend has given me an old Kapok 1300 notebook but it appears that the CMOS battery has worn out. If the notebook is switched off for longer than a couple of hours and then switched on it tries to boot from floppy (without success so I have to rest the BIOS to boot from the hard drive) and once its finally booted the date in Windows resets to sometime in 1980.
I want to be able to fix this and have seen the batteries for sale for about £2. The problem is that I can't find where the battery would fit. I’ve taken all the back plates off and removed the CD drive and hard drive but can't see the battery anywhere. I know it's a long shot but has anyone replace the CMOS battery in one of these machines and if so where is it?
