Can anybody give me a site where I can check what is the correct battery for Compaq Prsario Laptops. I replaced the batt in the US two years ago and it is now dead again. I think the original batt lasted about 5 years.

Do you mean the motherboard battery i.e. The CMOS battery that is usually the flat round one?

I know its printed on the batt thanks. I just wanted to check it was the correct one as it only lasted 2 years.

PCW & Compaq on line support told me it was a integral batt that would require a workshop to replace. Funny as I had changed it before. Anyway replaced it today myself (CR1220). How long will this one last?
