    What is the correct procedure for replacing the MB battery? Power off? etc. I have a alton m760v MB that reverts back to cmos defaults after being unplugged for a couple of days. Is this normal, I have 2 that do the same thing. Old batteries ?

    CMOS should only reset if there is something wrong, or if a battery is bad.

    Replacing it is just as you said - unplug power, take out the old one, put in the new one.
