Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario C502US Notebook ?

How do I Find, Identify & Replace Bios Battery on my C502US

\015 I reverted back to Win XP and had to disable the SATA settings in the Bios to do so. I think the Bios battery is Dying, because about every 3rd boot I get the Blue Screen of Death, and have to go back into the Bios and Disable the setting again, as well as re-set the date, which always reverts back to Feb 2006. (which I Imagine is when the Board was Born) I cannot seem to find a Bios Battery for sale anywhere, or a place to tell me where it would be located on the Board... Any Suggestions?!\015

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012The board on that laptop uses a traditional CR2032 battery. This battery you can find at almost any jewlers or electronics shop.
\015\012(ref)
\015\012You can see it in images such as this one or this one.
\015\012
\015\012Now you knwo the battery type, and where in the board is located :)
\015\012As for how to access it I think this instructions (see step #13) are very similar for the C500 or given the physical similarities use the C300 instructions.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this works,
