with the switchim1947 power your computer COMPLETELY downwith the switch on the back panel that is actually located on the power supply. I even unplug the computer. Then you need to remove the side of the computer case (this may be different by your specific model. Post some pictures of what your case looks like etc. Use this guide Agregar imágenes a una pregunta existente for that. That way we can see what you see. Once your remove the case and can see the motherboard, locate the battery.

The battery may be secured with a little metal clip that you push aside with a small screwdriver. Then remove the battery with a small pair of pliers etc.

Thanks. What faked me out is I couldn't see it at first because everything is squeezed in on top of each other because of the slim tower design of the SX series. I didn't want to start moving the DVD drive to look closer since I'm still a little nervous poking around inside. I looked on the internet for a picture of the motherboard. I found pictures of the motherboard but couldn't locate it on the pictures. Now I see that I was looking for a horizontal circular object that should have been easy to see. I never thought it would be mounted vertically. I changed the battery, held my breath and ,lo and behold, it actually booted up !!! Thanks again.


@jim1947 you are welcome.
