    Hi everyone)
    I want to replace cpu in my old G570. Now there is i3-2350M. Few months ago I bought i7-2860QM, but as my laptop have locked bios (and it's locked with key, which is possible to generate in other ways) I couldn't boot it after cpu replacement. I need to reset bios to make it work, but as it doesn't have regular CMOS battery it's not that easy to do.

    What I want to know is placement of solderd CMOS battery to shorten contacts via booting to reset bios which will allow to change CPU.

    I know that my current cpu is 35W and i7 is 45W, but I find others who done it and it worked pretty good. Also I can do some tweaks with throttlestop and if needed replace regular paste with liquid metal.

    Тhanks in advance for your reply :)
