Bios battery (Milono W7)

Have a problem with loss of date and time when main battery power is lost. Need to find location of Bios battery, as it dose'nt shout at me when I remove the cover.
Any advice would be great.
Thanks

We need more information about the machine. Can you confirm the manufacturer and the exact model

RE: Bios battery (Milono W7)

This is another Advent branded netbook.
UKTSupport identifies it as a ECS V10IL1

The EXS manual is at http://eudownload.ecs.com.tw/dlfileecs/V10IL1%20Series%20English.pdf
It states that the machine uses a CR2032 CMOS battery, but does not say where it is. I suspect you need to take the machine apart to find it - unless theres a hidden compartment revealed when you take the main battery out
