I have a socket 7 baby AT motherboard that needs a new battery before it could be used. I was considering replacing the dallas battery with a socket and a DS12C887+ from digikey. Does anyone has any experience of how hard removing the battery from a multi layer PCB will be without damaging the motherboard?
Looking at the side of the PCB I can count it having 5 or 6 layers. Am I going to need some kind of special equipment for doing it and what kind of temperatures I should use?
I have replaced caps before but they have been older motherboards and I dont think they have been multi layer PCBs.
