Question about Computers & Internet
Assuming you know how to get into your computer and identify the CMOS battery, you just need a pair of tweezers or similar to remove the battery. Once it has removed, take it into a drug store or pharmacy and find the exact same battery, and replace it in the motherboard. If you can't identify the CMOS battery, please let me know and I can help you with that.
