The BIOS battery for a G42-415DX that I just bought used was rattling around inside the case. I was able to coax it out through the hard drive bay but now I want to put it back in place. Can anyone show me instructions on how to replace the BIOS battery?

Unfortunately this will require a lot of disassembly as the RTC cell is clipped to the underside of the System Board - see Page 96 of your Maintenance & Service Guide for full details.
