    I have a Gateway SX2370 Desktop PC and been having problems of late. when I reboot it, it comes up to a screen saying F1 to continue and delete to go into bios. When I go to F1 to continue my clock and date get all messed up. Some suggested that I change the battery *should look like a cell battery* and I looked inside but have no idea what it looks like. Could someone help me

    look for a silver disk on the motherboard that is about 20mm\.75" in diameter.
