Inspiron 530s CMOS battery replacement
I'm looking at possibly having to replace the CMOS battery shortly; I know HOW to replace it, but the manual is not very clear at having to reset any BIOS settings afterwards.
1. Will running the Dell Diagnostics tests show the status of the battery? I haven't had any "low battery" type warnings.
2. If I replace the battery, will the BIOS settings update automatically, or will I be looking at resetting some items manually?
Thanks for any help!
