I have a Compaq Presario 9232 where the CMOS battery is dead. It is not an CR2032 but a smaller battery which seems difficult to remove. I know you can get a CMOS battery that is wired like this:
The motherboard has a 4-pin connector named "Ext Batt" (well actually there are only 3 pins with a gap). If I can find a new wired battery that has a connector like this could I plug it in to the 4-pin connector on the MB and leave the old one where it is?
I would rather buy something than have to wire something myself. I can find lots of them online but none with the connector that matches the MB.
