Replace the battery, charge it fully - then update the BIOS.

Hold on doing the BIOS update until you have replaced the battery.  While you can force flash a BIOS without a battery, a single power drop during the process will brick the mainboard -- it's a bad idea.

Thank you.

Is it difficult if I want to change the battery myself? And any idea where can I buy the battery?
