Today I finally got around to replacing my motherboard batteries, on the Dell, the HP and my desktop. It took me a few months after first encountering problems on my desktop before I finally got around to it, but having to reset the clock every time I started or restarted the computer finally got old.

Of course I couldn’t just put in a battery - I had to fix the soundcard, as it of course managed to pop out of its slot. Then I had to spend about half an hour to get the surround sound working again, because the audio jacks had rearranged themselves (again).
