Today, I just put together my parts. Everything seems to be working fine. There is one thing that has me concerned. Every time I turn on the pc, the bios screen says cmos failure. I read the instruction that came with the board and it said to clear the cmos if you have these problems (not listing).
I did as it said but that keeps showing up. Should I be concerned and how can I fix it? Thanks.
I've never seen one on a motherboard either, but they are common on lots of other electronic devices that are shipped with a battery installed and I've only dealt with a limited number of brands in new installs (there are a lot I simply won't buy no matter how good the price looks).
CR2032 is the most common size used these days but CR2025 is seen sometimes, too.
