How can I replace the CMOS battery on my MSI laptop?

Steven November 22, 2010

I keep getting a CMOS date and time not set error when I boot up my laptop. I was hoping someone could walk me through how to change it. I opened my laptop up to see if I could find it and had no luck. I have a MSI ex600 laptop from Cyberpower PC. I bought it 3 years ago. Thanks for your help.

    Some battery used in todays computers .3 volt Lithium coin cell battery. Replacement for CR-2032 computer battery

    3.6 volt ni-cad battery - 60mah - 2 pin connector - solder on.
    Replacement for most soldered on "barrel" type batteries.If your motherboard has a 4 pin connection near your old battery use B220 which you just plug on.

    6V Lithium battery replacement for PS2 50 and up computer battery.
