I have a customer with an IBM laptop, I have replaced the CMOS battery
twice. does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be causing
this. The laptop seems to work for several weeks before it dies. It
reads .4 volts dc (3v required).
I had suspected soldering the connections to the battery was the cause,
required for this model. I don't have the paperwork available, I think
it's a R31. Customer is currently just entering date and time into BIOS
to use the lapltop.
