As a field service tech, I am advising all people on the list that there
is a high probability for 2-3 year old desktop machines to have a CMOS
I started getting service calls on P4-2Gigs and above just a month ago
and also my AthlonXP 2600+ machine (motherboard bought in end of 2004)
had a battery failure. At one instance I had to replace a battery on a
P4-3G that had been put out of operation for a month (totally unplugged
from mains power).
Also, stop stocking CR2032 batteries from broken motherboards, they are
either already failed or nearly at end of life. Always use new spares.
