Re: Can't Replace System Battery - What to do?

In general if the battery is dead the motherboard will not retain some or all BIOS settings, particularly date functions, but will boot. The older the vintage of the motherboard the more likely that is but much depends on the condition of the mobo and its subcomponents.

Are you sure you can't get something under the battery to pop it out? Looking at pictures of that old beast it looks like you should be able to shimmy something between the battery and its case. You might need to remove the power connector.
