Duracell's are 2 for $3.00US at the supermarket.
Alright thanks for the info , let me ask you this , if you get them from a grocery store are they that reliable?
Superb CR2032 maybe keep working 6 years.
Cheap CR2032 maybe keep working 3 years.

It's just a matter of luck... even the expensive ones can fail within a year.
Replacing them is so easy... buy a few cheap ones.

Yes, from a supermarket should be reliable.

A CR 2032 will be a 3.0 volt battery.

If you look closely at the battery you will see that it is actually held in by 2 clips, directly opposite one another. One of these can be pushed back to allow one side of the battery to spring up slightly. When that happens you can carefully get the battery out.

Actually while I was typing this Kaktussoft has shown a very good picture of what to do.

Yeah just watched that video , and I did everything he said but in the end , I accidentally broke it , I am honestly not upset about it because I have the hardrive with me, so next time I get a tower I will just insert my hardrive in there.

The whole battery part , the black plastic handle that stuck to the motherboard.

The plastic is just a holder to make the battery fit. Can't you fix that with plastic?
The two metal parts have to make contact to + and - side of battery that's all. Just like a normal battery like AAA

Unbelievable you broke it.
