So my Intel NUC NUC7i3BNHX1 is complaining over no time set in bios after being unplugged for some time. Is the cmos already dead after only 2 years + some months?

 

The little I read I need a new 2032 battery with cables? And take out the entire board.

 

Any ideas where I can get this in Norway, or shipped int. Else having to rma this thing.

ok, 5 batteries arrived for 2$. Changed red\blue wire to correct place and installed.

 

Had a fright turning it on, first took long time and device boot not found. Then into bios set clock and try again and finally it booted.

 

Really bad that batteries last 2 years, but excuse to clean the fan.
