Precision Workstation 370 cmos battery

Jump to solution

On boot-up I get a warning of low battery voltage with the message ("press F1 to continue").  Before I open the computer case I would like to have a replacement battery ready to install.  What I need to know is what is the comercial type number of a suitable replacement battery so I can buy one.

A 3-V CR2032 lithium coin cell is required, this can be purchased from any Radio Shack, WalMart and most pharmacies.

Bev, thanks so much for the battery information.  One other question ... besides re-setting the clock date and time is there any other steps I need to take after exchanging the battery?

None, as far as I know.

But, before replacing the CMOS battery, it is advisable to make a note of the system setup settings, as a reference.

I find it easier to use a digital camera for this.
