Remove the CMOS battery from the MBoard...'bout the size of a Dime...with all power unplugged...
Wait 10 minutes and hit the power switch a few times to remove any built up power,
Replace the battery and power up.

You must have really big dimes where you live, here it's about the size of a quarter.

ACtually, I just checked... it is the same size as a dime... maybe a millimeter difference...

Not by much.

It's closest in size to a penny, though.

What part of Canada do you live in?

Do you have the same coins we do?

The battery in my welding mask is the same size as a quarter roughly, same battery.

You're both wrong. It's the size of a nickel.

nickel's a teensy bit larger, but definitely closer then a dime or penny.

I'd never measured it, but I always thought it was closer to a quarter.
