I cannot find any documentation.

looks like Higrade was purchased by Microlink PC UK Ltd.

perhaps you could ask them for a manual.

I would personally be to lazy for that and just open it up.

the battery should look like a flat disk, about 1centimeter in diameter, older ones might be wrapped in yellow plastic with 2 wires sticking out.

Thanks Hidde
There is nill support from hi grade i thought same thing with battery had it stripped as far as i can go twice board cannot be lifted from case as it is glued down and lower case and frame are riveted together,managed to look underneath from every angle by slight flexing the board but can see no wire and plug or battery holder on underside of board and positive i cant lift it anymore without destruction or severe damage.Nothing on internet about them,would just get another laptop but i have $3000 worth of diagnostic soft on it.I am wondering if it has a capaciter like some later laptops failinf that i may need someone to tell me where to wire in a cmos battery of my own.

You can take the drive out, connect ( slave ) it to another computer & Copy them over.

Here is what a cmos battery looks like.

I don't use an enclosure to slave as I have pc's, just a matter of taking off a cover & connecting the spare cables. No need to bolt the drive in.

Enclosures may suit you.

No NVRAM so just have to give it back to Him and tell Him to check date before He starts it each time so that it doesnt require fixing the programs each time
