Specs: Windows XP
I have a low system battery warning. Dell says that I need to replace my battery with a 305W in my Dell Precision Workstation 360 (older desktop) Is this difficult to do by myself? and where can I get this battery? What does it look like? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Most likely you mean the CMOS battery on the motherboard. It's a lithium "coin" battery about the size of a nickel & is very easy to change. Just unplug the tower, open the case, find the battery on the board & swap it out. Doing so will wipe the BIOS settings so after you put it back together & bootup, the 1st thing you need to do is enter the BIOS & correct the date/time & all the rest of the settings. Here's what the battery looks like:

BTW, 305W is probably the power supply wattage. It has nothing to do with the battery.
