Having problems with your Lenovo 3000 N200 Notebook ?

CMOS battery I need to reset the CMOS, so I need to remove the system battery. I have a problem finding it. Where is it, what does it look like, how many volts does it have and how do I get to it? Is it really so different from all other batteries? I've seen hundreds and I can't recognize this one. I've dissasembled the whole laptop and I can't find it. Someone said that in stead of replacing the battery I can simply circuit the two contacts next to the hdd, the ones with the black and white cab

Hi there.
Whatever you do don't short the pins by the HDD, this can cause damage, have a look at some of the pictures to give you an idea what some laptop bios/cmos batteries look like>>> 4e083df.jpeg

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
