Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex SX280 PC Desktop ?
When i turn off pc then on i seem to have a problem with the battery on the motherboard can you help
The battery on the motherboard the only case that it is used is when you unplug the cable from the socket. In that case when you will plug the cable again and turn on the pc it will ask to press F1 to load fail saif defaults. If your pc does this then you have to change the mobos battery whitch you can find normally from the middle and down right of the mobo and it is round, silver and it has a + on the surface and its code. you have to push the metal that holds the battery and it will be released.
