    I finally got the cover off my dell 486. My son managed to slide it off from front to back. Neither he nor I can find the battery now. Where should I look? In the power supply?

    Hi again, Lynda, look at the motherboard......I can't quite remember if my old Dell had a 'watch' type battery or if it looked more like a 1/2 size AAA battery.......Look around on the motherboard, or perhaps look at your manual....If you don't have your manual handy, Dell has a pretty good reference lookup on their site.
