Did you remove the main battery before disconnecting the CMOS/RTC battery???

The laptop that is giving me this problem does not have a battery. My client said the battery isn't working so he removed it. I did remove it from power and no battery installed when removing the CMOS/RTC battery.

Sorry but the system board would need to be replaced.

If you live within the Tampa Florida area I could sell you a working unit for $20.
