CMOS Battery for IDEAPAD Y710

The clock and date on my laptop goes to 2006 every time I disconnect the main energy supply. I was informed that the internal battery" must be at fault. I believe that it is probably the CMOS battery that is at fault. The questions are: 

Where is the CMOS battery located?

How do I change it?

Where I can find the specs and part # of this battery?

Thanks,

Marcelo

Remove any panels on the bottom and see if you can find battery.

If not visible, laptop would need to be disassembled.

I don't know if is a replaceable one or not, hopefully
someone knows!

Hi,

 

since you're obviously not familiar with this matter,

 

i would suggest to bring your laptop to a repair shop,

 

and let them replace the battery.

 

They should   do it in a few minutes.

 

That's best.

Re: CMOS Battery for IDEAPAD Y710

It seems very odd that Lenovo does not address this issue at all. I am very fond of Lenovo, but I am somewhat unhappy and wandering if I should buy a new equipment from this brand.
