Replacing the CMOS battery in this model?

Hello, I actually own the 3542 not the 3541 that I selected but it was the only option and plus they seem nearly identical.

Whenever I boot up the laptop I get five beeps. I looked up the beep codes and apparently that means the CMOS Battery is failing. Was just curious if anyone had a guide? Instructions? Or anything. Even where to buy a quality replacement battery.

Here is a link to a video which shows how to remove the motherboard in your laptop so that you can access the CMOS battery.

At 2:56 minutes into the video the battery is visible.

I have highlighted the battery location in the image below.

The battery looks to be a standard lithium coin cell type battery. The type number will be stamped on the battery. They are most probably available in supermarkets etc.

Hopefully this is of some help.
