    Like any other older hardware this can happen, glad it all went well though.

    If you can download the service manual here: http://tim.id.au/laptops/gateway/gateway p-78.pdf you will find step by step instructions to replace the CMOS battery.

    You will have to remove the IEEE 802.11 wireless card in order to get to that battery.
