We have a Gateway SX2370-UB30P that has been working fine. Recently when we turn the computer on we get a BIOS message saying the battery is dead. I've taken the cover off - but can't find the battery.. Google searches have turned up nothing.
Hello Oldguy, I have the same model computer you have and also have been unsuccessful in finding out how to replace it.
One tech told me sometimes they are part of the motherboard. I did find a picture of the inside of a computer showing where
the cmos battery is located. (found it on Computer Hope) I asked a tech about it and he said could be cmos battery #CR2032. It is a small flat silver one about the size of a nickel. So, if you took your cover off and did not see it my guess is that it must be
part of the motherboard.-- I have read that if we replace the battery ourselves we must be careful regarding a possible
very small undetectable charge that could damage the computer. You must be grounded at all times (by having contact with the case or some other way.)
