Are Mo-bo CMOS batteries interchangable?

Hello!

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

  1. 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

    That one is 3V.

    Excuse me , but I wold like to know which motherboard is that? (the mobo which uses the 3,6V batterie)

    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 would say since 1996 at least.

    Possibly (it had windows 2000)
  9. 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.

    What doesn't exist?? :heink:

    Because I Know that you CAN buy CR-2032s
  11. CC doesn't exist. If you can buy the 2032 at walgreens, rite-aid, CVS, etc they obviously exist.
  12. Sorry, I misunderstood,
    I am from Canada and we have different stores here
  13. it's all nice...except that I live in Sweden...We have OnOff, Staples here.
  14. You can get them anywhere they sell watch batteries :)
    In Canada you can also buy them in staples
