Tell you what, heres where you will find it on most presario's. If it doesn't match yours then let me know the exact model number :

1. Remove the Main battery & mains lead obviously

2. Wear a static strap

3. Flip the laptop upside down with the rear of the laptop nearest you.

4. You should see several square/rectanular panels on the underside. The panel in the bottom left corner (nearest the modem & network sockets) is for the mini PCI comms. Carefully undo the 4 retaining screws & slide the cover off.

5. You should be able to see the cmos battery next to the communications board. If you can't, then you may have to unclip & remove that board as well but don't do this unless you have to

6. Make sure the new battery in inserted with the + facing upwards

If you don't feel confident enough with disassembling the laptop, then taking it to a store is a good idea.
Good luck.
