Default How would the battery of the motherboard affect the PC?

Every motherboard has a battery. If the battery were to run out eventually, what would be the consequence? How will this affect the PC?

You'd lose all user defined information (like date/time) and force the PC to re-assess the Auto settings every time it reboots. In rare cases it might prevent a post, and/or cause general mahem......

Heh... I initially considered using the phrase "higildey pigiley" to describe the generally random chaotic acts which can occur from a failed battery, but realised I had absolutely no idea how to spell it, and that a dictionary wasn't likely to help.... ;)

edit: Well.... what do you know.... ;)

You know, the wonderful thing about tabbed browsing is that you can look this sort of thing up while you're writing a response
