  1. hp pavilion ze4906us ive had a few years, the CMOS battery is at the end of its life and needs to be changed. I have not done this before, and am wondering if there is a video or something to guide me thru what i need to do to change the battery.

    As i was looking online for people with the same problem, i did find that i need a Maxell ML-1220 3volt rechargeable battery, but do not know if they are available at bestbuy or something like that or if i have to order it online.

    any help is appreciated greatly. thank you in advance....

    The CMOS battery may be located under the keyboard or accessed under a "door" on the bottom of the laptop. Taking the laptop to a repair center might be a wise thing to do
