Optiplex GX280 Internal Battery.

  • Hello,
    At boot up, I sometimes get a BIOS message stating the system battery is low and needs to be replaced...
    Can I do this? Or do I have to contact Dell to come to me?
    Can anyone provide a link to a Dell solution for me?
    Cheers and thanks!
  • you certainly can do this yourself. go here to view the manual for your pc...

    looks like no instructions there for battery replacement but it will show you how to open the case to access the battery. usually looks like a big watch battery. remove the battery, take it to the local electronics store & purchase replacement.

    removing the battery will revert bios settings to default. if needed, refer back to the manual to update bios settings.
  • Thanks heaps for the info!
  • Maybe this.
