Thanks so much for your guide post. I just finished replacing the CR2032 battery on my motherboard and could not have done it without your post.

larryrchrds - Yanıt

larryrchrds whats symptoms did your Notebook have? Mine comes up with the charging light on, power light on but no display, no fan noise. if i connect the display to another screen nothing comes up either.The computer just stoped working out of the blue. Iam wondering if you experienced the same.

edson -

I had the same issue as edson. Replaced the CMOS and works fine now. Fantastic guide. I realise this is 3 years after the comment. But might be handy for anyone else with the same problem :)
