How to replace battery on Intel duo CPU E4500?

Hello - I'm new to this forum and am not a super-techie, so I hope someone can help me solve this issue. Whenever I reboot, I get the error "Diskette Drive 0 Seek Error, and have to hit F1 to continue. I have tried modifying the boot config to remove any reference to a diskette, but it keeps thinking I have one. Also, when there's a power failure, my clock resets to 1/1/07 which really screws things up until I remember to adjust the time. I am told the battery on the motherboard needs to be replaced.

This PC is a few years old...what it says specifically in general system properties is:

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU

E4500 @2.20GHz2.19 GHz, 1.99 GB of RAM

Physical Address Extension

I'm running MS Windows XP Professional Version 2002, Service Pack 3

Can I replace the battery on the motherboard, how would I go about doing this, and is it difficult? Would that solve both these issues?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!
