my dim 8200 is approx 6 yrs old. I just received a message when booting up that the system battery is low. does this mean I have to replace the battery? what is involved and what do I have to do before replacing?
Yes, you need to replace the small battery on the motherboard.
A 3-V CR2032 lithium coin cell is required, this can be purchased from a Radio Shack, WalMart, or most pharmacies.

Thanks for the info, Bev, and your quick reply. I will be picking up the battery and making sure that I have the current settings.
Happy to have helped.
