I want to revive some second-hand computers that have not been switched on for 2 years or more. Most have Windows 7 operating system already installed and all bought as seen, from several reputable computer shops or from charity shops etc, ... about 6 desktops and 3 laptops in all.
Should I replace all of their batteries before powering them up or is there a better time to do this?
wee eddie, my request is solely to ascertain the optimum procedural time and conditions relating to the age of these computers for replacing the battery. My main concern is the fatal loss of Bios settings.
btw, I'll use these computers for mundane recording and archival purposes.
I got caught out some time ago by one of an apparent gang on ebay. The address of the sender led back to a high street shop that appeared to be offering all sorts of financial advice, including, apparently, fraud.
