I'm getting a warning that the voltage in my system's battery is low. (The battery is very old - I'm sure the warning is correct.)

I read somewhere that if the system battery dies, the computer will no longer boot. (PC, Windows, desktop, connected to an UPS).

Is that correct?

Thanks to all.

As was said, it will likely just lose the date and time.

But, typically these are just watch batteries on the motherboard (CR2032). So it should be cheap and easy for you to replace.  Can pick one up at the grocery store, even.
