How do I change the CMOS battery gateway?

November 29, 2010 at 07:35:20
Specs: Windows XP, 1 GB ram
I have a boot problem everytime I start my computer. I get the following message: CMOS/GPNV checksum bad and CMOS Date/Time not set. Is it only a battery change? I have a gateway computer. What is the procedure to change the CMOS battery?

See the Owner's or User's manual for your model if you have a desktop computer. That info is always in that.
If your computer still has it's original brand name software installation, that manual is usually already in your Programs list somewhere.

In the mean time, the Cmos will retain the Time and Date once it has been set as long as the computer is still running, even after you reboot.
