How to replace cmos in gateway m500 series with pictures please

HI,
i got the M500 series. Date and time do not get saved when i shut down. So each time i power up, date and time needs to be adjusted as they are reset to some date on 2003. It is the CMOS battery (that tiny 12V battery "hidden" deep inside).
I need help to locate it, how to reach it, but with pictures please. That will be more than helpful from yr side.

Thanx
:-)

  1. Give these a try. Replaced cmos battery in old Compaq laptop - real pain in the gazzo. Had to remove keyboard, dvd drive and the processor HS. Some are easier - good luck.
