Need type/part number for cmos batter for Asus Essentio Desktop CM 5571. Called Asus and their store; they tell me I have to send unit to them to have battery replaced. Told them I have replaced cmos batteries before in my work, but they just referred me from phone number to phone number, long holds, no answer to my question. Wanted to get the part before I open the box.

I haven't taken one of these units apart to verify, but it should just be a CR2032 coin cell battery. Costs around $3 at almost any electronics store, even carried by a lot of more general retailers who have an electronics department.
