I need to replace the CMOS battery for my grandpa's computer. I know the model of his Dell motherboard. Does anyone know of where I can look up which particular battery to purchase? I'd rather get the battery before going to his house, as it's a bit far from any electronics store.

Thanks for any info!

--edit--

Some more information:

It's a Dell Inspiron 531
The mobo is a Dell 0RY206

Cmos batteries are usually universal and look like this one below. Note the model number on the battery.
