Can anyone tell me. I dont have the manual. I have a Compaq NX9110 Business Notebook Laptop. I know the main battery has a problem. But does the motherboard have a second battery for the clock? I am not sure if it works off the main battery. But everytime I take power off and switch on again, the year and time are wrong. Goes to 1601.....

Any assistance would be appreciated. Even anyone know of a cheap place for the main battery, as i note they are quite expensive.

Yes it as a CMOS battery to keep the time and settings

  woodchip 18:27 01 Nov 06

Go to BIOS as comp starts and try setting the clock and date

PS do not forget to save settings as you exit BIOS

The cmos battery costs only a pound or two, and lasts 5 years or more.
obtainable from any local computer shop.

It's normally a CR 2032
Where it is located on your model, I don't know

Thanks for all the help above. Anyonne know where the battery is situated. I cant find it unless i to take it all apart. WOuld have thought it in a logical access place?

There is usually a small oblong metal piece about 1 inch by 2inches or so screwed to the bottom of most laptops.

This is where most memory chips are accessible.

It would be worth looking there as it seems a logical place for easy access.

all the best.

Fingees I was after the cmos? battery not the memory chips. Tks anyway

I still cannot find the CMOS battery in any accessible place. Does anyone have any idea where it will be on this laptop? Getting desperate here.
I have emailed HP. All they will say is take it to a HP dealer.
