Hi All

I have a P4 mobo where the CMOS battery housing has been snapped and no longer retains the battery.

So is the board gone or is there any way to retain the battery - glue, tape etc??

Regards

You take it to a technician and have him solder in the necessary leads and new holder. Glue and tape is not a good idea - you have no clue as to their insulating or conductive properties.

No harm in that, or for asking - no one wants to spend money when not needed. That said, this should be a simple repair task if the contact points can be determine just by looking at the board.
