Default Time and Date off

The time and date will not stay right after I set it. I think its the battery on the MOBO needs replacement, but wanted to check myself and see if I am correct. Never replaced one before. Do you just take it to the battery store and get a replacement? Outside of popping it in, is there anything I need to do?

Thanks BikerEcho. Was not quite sure about after physically replacing the battery. Now I know. Will pick one up today and replace tonight.

I installed the battery. Had to use the jumpers because the manual information is wrong. Set the date and time in system settings. When trying to boot, got a diskette error. Disabled the old dinosaur and was able to boot. Is there anything else that I need to do before giving this back to my sister?

I don't think so. Does it work like it should. If yes, then give it back.

Yes, it seems to work fine. I just did not know everything BIOS did. Will read up on it. Thank you for your help.
