Laptop CMOS battery

  1. Hello friends,

    I am in dire need of a new CMOS battery or "RTC" battery. I ordered a new one and as luck would have it I got a laptop LCD cable instead. My question is the following.

    Is it possible to buy a new CMOS battery without the laptop cable and wire my own CMOS battery? I could use the cable from the dead CMOS battery and wire it to the new battery. Is this possible, It seams like a fairly simple thing to do. Anyone have any input or experience with this?

    Thanks!

    What is the laptops make and model? Serial number or Service Tag would also be nice
