Hi. I'm sort of new at this, so I could be wrong, but when this message appears at boot-up it means I need to replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard, correct? I have an 8500TAC-A vers 4...which does not have a separate CMOS battery that I can tell. From reading Henry's comments back in March (or February?), I have come to the conclusion that the battery is housed in the RTC, which is a Dallas 12C887A. Does anyone know how I would go about replacing the battery? Thanks for your help.
