    It's that time when the clock on my PC is starting to slip. Can I just pull the CMOS battery out and take it to a shop to buy a replacement, or is there more to it than that?
    Thanks in advance.

    PS - Oh ya, I'm wondering what people think of A+ certification. Is it worth the money and is it valued in the industry? Thanks again.

    Turn off your system and umplug it. Then you can remove the battery to replace it. You can buy a replacemnt at any discount store. Usually just a calculator battery. I thinnd cr2032 is a standard cmos battery but dont quote me on that.
    A+ is a good intro to training. It is actually a prerequisite to several other certification programs. I am A+ and had to be to get certified for other things and to work on certain types of equipment and not void the warranty.
    Good Luck,
