My CMOS clock battery went bad on my VIA Rhine II machine, since the clock resets upon startup. I am having trouble finding the battery though. Does anyone know where it is on this mobo?

"VIA Rhine II" is a Lan [network] device, not a motherboard model.

The battery is about the size of a quarter & should be pretty easy to locate.
It should be the only round shiny thing.
You may have to move some cabes around to see it.

Be careful not to pry on the tab too hard or it might snap off
Also remember the polarity of the battery
You can find replacements at the drug store by the watch and hearing aid batteries
