Yes, a little lithium cell usually. What make/model of computer? Cost about a pound at 'the pound shop' and takes about 5 min to install.

As Wiz-King said you need a Lithum Cell Battery Normally they are model CR2032.

And you posted in wrong forum too.

1 battery should last you about 5 years

Still in trouble, replaced battery it came up with message found new hardware install sound CD even though sound was playing ok. Ran installation CD, CREATIVE X-Fi now no sound. Went through trouble shooting, When I got to sound & audio devices / properties/ Audio tab, shows REALTEK HD as Default can't select Creative not listed. Checked programes in add/remove REALTEK HD is listed but no size is given Creativ is listed as 100.08MB so it looks as though computer is trying to play sound from a non existant program but won't use the one that exists. Clock is OK. any ideas please.

In Device Manager you revert back to old drivers for sound etc
