Compaq Presario 1080 RTC Battery
Posts: n/a
      11-03-2005, 01:00 AM

I have the above shown laptop and it doesn't want to boot. A screen
message says the RTC batery needs replacing. If I leave it powered for
a while it will boot after I reset the CMOS defaults so it appears to
be okay except for that battery. Oddly, though, the system clock has
never lost the correct date/time.

I've found the battery online and I've put cmos batteries into desktop
computers before but never a laptop. I'm not sure where the battery
goes or even how to get the case open. Any advice on this would be
greatly appreciated.
