Battery removal and installation - ThinkStation S10 (type 6423 and 6483)
Your computer has a special type of memory that maintains the date, time, and settings for built-in features, such as serial-port assignments (configuration). A battery keeps this information active when you turn off the computer.
The battery normally requires no charging or maintenance throughout its life; however, no battery lasts forever. If the battery fails, the date, time, and configuration information (including passwords) are lost. An error message is displayed when you turn on the computer.
To change the battery:
Turn off the computer and disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet and from the computer.
