Good morning everyone. :D This should be quick and I appreciate your input.

Desktop computer. On the boot I get a "Attention: System Battery Voltage Low......"
warning. Other threads I've read seem to suggest that I need to begin by replacing the CMOS Battery. Problem is: I don't know where it is .......or ......how to replace it.

I'd appreciate any help as I'd like very much to do this today.

Thanks so much,
Susan

Hi Susan Q I hope you are doing well. :D
Nope you open the case and the battery will be located on the motherboard. below is a pic of what you are looking for. [attachment=49442:A455-3045-v01.jpg]
There should either be a little clip or or spring holding it and you just have to be careful so you don't damage the clips.
The battery can be purchased at Radio Shack, Watch Repair or a Computer repair shop. Cost is less then 5 dollars.

You are very welcome and I'm sorry for the long period between posts. I was out mowing yards and just got back. Please let me know how everything works out and remember you will have to go into the bios and set your time and date up or you will have issues with your system running correctly. Let me know if you need help with that.
:D
