Just make sure you install the new battery in the same fashion the old battery was installed. Once installed the + sign should be showing on all motherboard I have messed with.
**A reminder: Set you time and date correctly in the bios after installing the battery.

I don't think it's a faulty battery. But why not just give it a try?

Don't you have CR2032 in the house? They are in almost all computers. Even in candles, sometimes in watches.

You can get the CR-2032 in any grocery store, drug store, etc. Most common coin cell.
Duracell's are 2 for $3.00US at the supermarket.
