Hello!

I think my CMOS battery is dying, so I want to try to install the battery from another system.

Yes, you can install any 3V Lithium cell batteries from another mobo.

Yes, Just take a look at the back of the batteries and make sure that they are not different voltages

I think that all the mobos use the same voltage (3V). I have never seen nothing diferent.

I have seen a 3.6v
but 3v is the most common

I f you want to buy a new one look for a model#: CR-2032
You can buy them at the source by circuit city or somewhere like that

a really old mother board (I cannot remember what board it was)

however I do not see the part where abrodski tells any one how old the motherboards are
But if they are 2002-Present then he should not have a problem.
also He should make sure the batteries are NOT :non:  CR-2016 which last only 40% as long as the CR-2032

I've also seen boards that have an odd "connection" for the battery. I think it was even soldered in place. Odds are REALLY good however that it will use a 2032 button battery. You can't buy one at CC, they don't exist. Walgreens, Rite-aid, CVS, etc should all be good.

CC doesn't exist. If you can buy the 2032 at walgreens, rite-aid, CVS, etc they obviously exist.
