internal battery is going dead, the place I rent my pc from, these people r morons, and had replaced the battery twice, and now insted of losing hrs, it lost a day yesterday....or something like 13 hours.....SO I'm buying my own online since they insist on giving me used ones....does anyone know the part number for the battery itself? It started with a C something....C2205 or something but I'm not positive...and they are closed so I can't call, nor would I want to at this point. I'm googling but it's not helping.

I have this computer

Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion
Processor: AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+ (2 CPUs), ~2.5GHz
Memory: 894MB RAM
Hard Drive: 310 GB
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
Monitor: I Inc
Sound Card: Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Speakers/Headphones:
Keyboard: USB Root Hub
Mouse: USB Root Hub
Mouse Surface: Arm of my chair :thumbsup:
Operating System: Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6001) Service Pack 1 (6001.vistasp1_gdr.080917-1612


ALSO, I bought a stick of ram that hould be here today or tomorrow, will that increase my gaming abilities? Like load times etc;

Thank you for any help.

I just googled and found a CR2025 and that kinda sounds familar?

That should be the correct one. At least it is for 99% of the boards out there.

Available at Radio Shack.


As far as the RAM. If it is another 1 GB stick (or more), it should make a big difference but I am not sure of the recommendations for the particular game you are playing.

I think the correct battery number is CR2032...that's all that I have ever used (on any system).

Looks like either the CR 2025 or CR 2032 would work. The CR 2032 has 230mAh while the CR 2025 has 160mAh. Both have 3 volts.

Thanks for all the replies everyone. I ended up opening it and taking it out to read the CR2032 on it. The comp is like new, what a difference that battery makes. Yea I hope the stick works with the gaming, to improve it anyhow. I play FEAR online and basically have to shut off every affect, put everything on low, minimum and so on....pain in my ass. Thanks again, I found the battery at wal-mart in the watch section :thumbsup:

If your using on board video (it appears you are [video built onto the motherboard]) you can increase the Allocated memory (the amount of memory the motherboard allows the video chipset to use) in the bios menu. This will allow more information to be stored in the memory for the video processor and may improve your gaming. It should be under Advanced settings. If try this and cant find it post back and we can determine what bios you have and lead you to the correct menu.
