I have no idea what battery the motherboard uses. There are several kinds. What does the battery look like? Or, what motherboard do you have (http://duxcw.com/digest/Fromshop/mb/det.htm)? Larry

The mayorety of the Pentium mainboards use a CR 2032 Lithium battery.
It is 2 Cm in diameter and 3,2 Mm thick.
It is a metal colored "Coin" shaped cell somewhere on the mainboard.
You should see a "+", "3V" and "CR2032" on it.

Every electronics store or a juwellery should have these cells.

Victor.

Read the bottom of http://duxcw.com/faq/cmos/cmos.htm before removing the old battery. Also, go into the CMOS Setup and record the settings, especially any disk drive settings. Insist on a CR2032. There are other batteries that are the same size that will not last as long. Radio Shack should have them. Larry
