hey im looking for a comp shop to but a cmos battery(the small 1 rupee looking thing) . my comps just stopped booting . tried putting the ram back . monitor ok . hard disk ok ,booting on aonther comp . fans blowing. the processor seems ok since the ipod is able to charge through the usb . cleaned everything . so im guessing its the battery ( and hope the processor is ok )

anywhere i can get it , near madiwala / btm / koramangala /elec city (all BANGALORE) ?

You sure its the battery? A dead CMOS battery just results in the BIOS not being able to save any customized settings, most notably the time/date setting.

I've normally not seen it restricting boot-up - atleast most of the comps in my college have dead CMOS batteries (can make out from the Jan 1st date on each boot :p ), and yet still boot up and run fine.

Processor need not necessarily be ok if the iPod's charging. Once the system receives the Power-on signal, power is supplied to all devices including USB ports instantly even if it doesnt go through the BIOS POST process.

Yup a dead battery wouldn't stop a PC from booting... its guaranteed something else. I've run a pc without a battery for a while :p.

Old MOBO requires support from Battery and it will not boot without battery. I have P3 with Tomato Board and face same problem 2 week back.

With New Generation MOBO no such problem arise (not with me in last 3 years:) )

You may be find same battery with Calculator shop too, as some Calcy requires same battries. Just keep the old battery with you, may need to match the Number.
