In an earlier forum I was told to check the voltage of my CMOS battery. Can someone tell me where to find this and how to recognize it. I have a 4 year old ACER tower with WIN98 installed.

Just replace the battery there cheap, a local computer store or Radio shack will have one.

Remember to discharge static electricity from yourself by touching the case before touching anything inside the computer.

it should be the only battery on the motherboard...and the voltage should be written on the battery itself...this is only the standard average voltage of the fully charged battery. i assume they are wanting you to check and see if that bettery is dead.....the best way to do that is to replace it with a new one...and see if it fixes your problem
