    Have you been able to fix (if you had any) the problem with the Real Time CMOS battery? I am restoring one, It always asks me for date and time and I cannot identify where the battery (integrated into something) is, I’ve tried to make searches, but I was not able to identify the chip or “the thing” that keeps the memory on. Thank you!
