    Scroll down to 'System Board Connectors and Sockets' HERE and look for Item 20 'Battery Socket'

  • The battery is a CR 2032 coin cell; about the size of a nickel and has the shiny side with a "+" mark facing up.  A description of how to replace the battery is found in the Dimension 8100 System Reference under the heading of Removing and Replacing Parts.  Below is a graphic from the System Reference showing the motherboard.  Notice that the battery is in the lower right corner of the board:

  • Thank you both.  As many times as I've had the cover off correcting other things, and never noticed the battery before!!  

    Have replaced a hard drive, installed memory, replaced a power supply, installed cd/dvd drives, but I guess there's a first for everything.  Thanks,again.
