1) Power down the system if it is not already off.
2) Unplug the system from wall outlet.
3) Remove the system cover.
4) Disconnect the power connector from the motherboard.
5) Carefully remove the CMOS battery (CR2032) from the motherboard and discard it.
6) Install new CR2032 that you bought into the battery holder.
7) Reconnect the power connector.
8) Close the cover, and plug the system.
9) Power up and enter the BIOS settings as you need to re-set the time and date as well as any other configurations there may be lost during the process.

Q: I have a power LED connector which is 3-pins; but, on the board, I see only two pins and one pin seems to be missing. Is that normal?


A: Yes, it is normal for IN810 only (newer models will have it included.) You can use two of three pins, but you will not be able to take a full advantage of bi-color function.

A: When you first turn the computer and the screen displays the Energy Star Logo. On third line down from the top, towards the end of the line it will say either Ver: or Version: and then have BIOS version number.
