I hope I'm in the right section (sorry if not)
My Dell (XPS Gen 4) battery has decided to start dying on me. This morning got the warning message it was low. After some research seems to be a common thing on these machine for the battery not have a long life span (5 years max).
I really should get a new PC but funds don't allow it and beside the day I do get a new one, I want this PC to go the kids so they have something to use.
Anyway rambling on lol I need to know beside taking the battery out and seeing what type it is, is there any other way I can find out what it is beside taking it out. The Dell website is pretty useless to be honest, providing any information on parts. (or I blind and didn't see it lol)
Also I read, I need to write down my CMOS settings, so need to know how to do this. Some suggested programs that can do this but need a working Floppy drive and mine doesn't work (another thing that died on it lol) some said can use USB stick but motherboard has to be new enough to accept that I don't think mine would be.
So how do I access the CMOS setting and write down all the settings. And basically a guide or website how to take out the CMOS battery and place a new one in would be wonderful (something step by step with picture maybe so I don't stuff it up lol)
Any help would be appreciated
