Hi everyone,

I have a Dell Inspiron 4100 laptop that has recently stopped keeping
track of time and this morning it forgot I had a CD-ROM drive. On a
desktop this would be a problem with the CMOS battery going dead, but
what I am running into is that the Inspiron 4100 doesn't have a CMOS
battery. Since the CMOS information is stored in nonvolatile memory
on this particular model, how would I "recharge" the long-term power
source for the nonvolatile memory?

Thanks in advance,
Isaac

Thanks for the link. That battery isn't going to be easy to replace by going to
the local electronics shop, but I should be able to get it online somewhere.

Long live usenet. =)
