Hi Rachel,

You're referring to the CMOS battery (coin cell)? If so, take a look at the service manual from HP:

1.) get an idea of where the battery is located:

- pg. 18 -- shows the battery's relative placement within the body

- pg. 22 -- identifying description of the battery

part# 20 = CMOS battery

2.) gather your tools and prepare a suitable environment for opening up your computer:

- pg. 33

- pg. 35 (make sure you disconnect all power source to the laptop and drain whatever power trailing within the laptop, proper grounding, etc.)

3.) disassembly:

- pg. 39 -- starts here, the HP guide has nice visuals to aid you through each step leading up to the

CMOS battery exposure

-- you'll remove the battery pack(pg.40), then the service cover (pg.41), then the hard

drive (pg. 42)

  • no need to follow steps continuing on pg. 43., skip to pg. 49 to see how to replace the coin cell battery.

hope this helps!

Hey Rachel,

The adapter may not be working properly to charge the battery. You can try a different adapter. If that does not work, the battery may be faulty. You can check out more at the device troubleshooting page.

To replace the battery, flip the device over. Find the pull tab with the battery icon and pull it. The battery should pop free and you can replace it.

Good luck!
