Windows 7: Need help with new battery installation

Doesn't your MB has an option to save profiles to an external media? If it does, save your BIOS settings as a profile file
The problem is if the current BIOS settings are wrong, then restoring them will bring the wrong settings back. Not good.

The time to save profiles is when everything is working properly. So I recommend letting the BIOS reset (which will happen when the battery is pulled), then after the new battery is inserted and the BIOS date and time, and other settings are like you want them, and you have selected Save and Exit and ensured everything is working correctly, then save the BIOS Setup profile for future use.

If you save the BIOS settings as a profile, you don't need to take notes.
There are some people that don't read all posts and just says you wrong.

But Itaregid is "always" right. Better do what he says.

I wish. But I sure strive to be when giving advice because I sure "always" hate to be wrong.

The first time you boot after replacing the battery, you likely will get this screen and you should immediately enter the BIOS Setup Menu at that time.

Reset your system clock for the correct date and time (including time zone), check or reset your "boot order" to make sure your boot disk is above other disks, them make sure you select "Save and Exit" to save the changes, exit the BIOS Setup menu and boot normally. You may still get the American Megatrends screen, but hopefully it will not indicate any errors and your time will be right.

Just be sure BEFORE you remove the old battery that you unplug the computer from the wall, then touch bare metal of the case interior BEFORE reaching in to discharge any static in your body. Observe the battery polarity (orientation in holder) before removing. The battery is most likely a CR2032, available at most battery/watch/camera counters. Do NOT touch the new battery with your bare fingers as skin oils promote corrosion and attracts dust. I put a clean cotton sock over my hand. And once again, touch bare metal of the case interior BEFORE reaching in. The battery holder is designed so the battery can only be inserted the right way - but it can be forced in wrong if too much force is used.

Also, while the case is open and unplugged, make sure the case interior is not blanketed with layer of heat trapping dust. Clean if necessary while frequently touching bare metal of the case interior to keep static buildup at bay.
Thanks for all the advice,i will do it when the battery comes by 'snail mail'!.I never thought of using a sock to prevent corosion,will give it a try.

Thanks

Colin

I found the O.C.(Overclocking) profile on my Motherboard advanced settings and have saved my current BIOS settings there.

Snail mail? CR2032 are not uncommon batteries. They are used in almost every PC and a multitude of other devices too. You should not need to order then no matter how remote you live. You certainly can find them cheaper on-line, but shipping would cancel out any savings. No big deal - other than the having to wait.
