I am including a link to a previous post concerning Dell. Its a different model but I believe may have some use for you. The teardown should be similar and you can check the coin battery for the proper replacement. Good luck.

I'd try replacing the coin cell battery as a first step. If that doesn't clear it get back to us.

You most likely have a dead battery. To check, remove the battery from the bottom of the machine and plug in the power cable. If it powers up, the battery may need to be replaced.
