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.
