View Full Version : Quadra 700 battery

07-14-2001, 09:17 PM
Hello! I've got a Quadra 700 running OS 8.1 system. When I turn it on, I get two startup bongs, and the date is always reverting to January 5, 1904. Someone suggested that my motherboard battery is dead, but I popped the cover off, and I can't see anything that looks like a battery. Is this something that has to unsoldered and replaced by a technician? Is a service/repair manual available for the Quadra 700? I'd gladly pay for a photocopy. Thank you for any help or suggestions!

The manual for the Q700 shows the location of the battery on the motherboard and the procedure to replace it. k
