I am in the middle of repairing a Gateway MD2614u Laptop. The system specs are



AMD Turion X2 RM-72         2.1 GHz



2048 MB


Ubuntu Linux 12.04.5


Prior to installing Ubuntu it ran Windows Vista 64-bit. Ubuntu or Vista was unable to

keep system time.


Assuming the cmos battery had died, I opened the back panel in an attempt to test

the battery and found it wired to the motherboard.


I have been searching for a new battery for the last few days and have been coming 

coming up empty.


If anyone has a lead I would be most appreciated.

As a hardware specialist, these things drive me nuts.  Hopefully the battery didn't leak before you got it out.  Either of the replacements suggested will work well but I like to add a connector  if possible to make the next time easier.
