There's only one.
"i'm sure the config instructions did not hold in cmos ram"
Have you ever done this before? There are very few user configurable settings on an OEM machine - generally just the date, time, boot order, possibly shared memory for graphics, & very little else. If you have a basic understanding of these settings, you do not need the manual to reconfigure them. Removing the battery simply resets the BIOS settings to the factory defaults. Did you test the battery with a voltmeter?
