I have changed many CMOS batteries in the past. The 760 is problematic for me. The directions in the manual show a battery holder with a clip, Mine appears to be solid , no clip. Applying light pressure on the battery seems to have no effect. Suggestions appreciated.
Replacing CMOS battery in an Optiplex 760

Is it a coin type battery as most are?
If so then there is a clip holding it.
A picture would help.

Sorry I can't post a photo. Still in the moving process, somewhere in a box is a camera. The battery compartment looks just like the one posted on Dell support but lacks the back tab/click Thanks for trying.

That's what I found in the manual.
It's also how pretty much all cmos batteries are changed out.
We need to see what yours looks like.
You're in the process of moving, so when you get a chance.

Gently push a very small screw driver into the slot in front of battery casing, in front of the large black connector.
The battery will then pop out. To put a new one back just push it in.
