How to get to the CMOS battery on your laptop: EEE PC Internal Mods Guide (Page 1) / Hacks and Modifications / EeeUser Forum

Scroll down to this picture on that page. It's the round, blue piece with tape across it at the left.

Here's another page (although without the helpful tear down pictures) that's supposed to be for the 1050 ha:

Where is the cmos battery in the Asus 1005HA

Is it a 1050 or a 1005? I sure wouldn't start tearing apart a laptop unless I had the proper directions!!

You have two real options. If it's wrapped in tape like that, you should hope it has a harness that battery plugs into. I've some without any actual harness. I've had CMOS batteries wrapped in tape with wires being held onto the battery. If that's the case, you can use the same wire and use a little electrical tape. If it has the harness, it's a 1.50 battery.

Otherwise, you can usually buy a matching battery for like $5 on eBay.

About 2 weeks ago I turned it on and it opened up to the BIOS screen, American MegaTrends. This had never happened before & I'd never seen that screen before--I thought it was a virus. I didn't know how to exit from it and inadvertently erased everything, so it started from a clean slate. I discovered that f1 would've bypassed the BIOS and taken me to the Windows screen...Yeah, live and learn.

The problem is, it still opens up to the this BIOS screen at start-up. I have to reset the 'silent boot' as well as the 'time/date' for every new session. I say every "new" session because once I set it, shut it down to test whether the changes stuck, then restart it, everything seems to be okay. However, tomorrow it will be the same problem again with the BIOS screen opening, with 'silent boot' disabled, and the date starting at January 1, 2002. It appears that after, I assume, so many hours, my notebook does not 'hold' any of the changes I made to the BIOS screen. Any help would be appreciated. And, please...use laymens terms, as I am a ditz when it comes to technology. Thanks in advance.
I'm looking for something that says you saved your setting when you exit from the CMOS setup. You did do that, didn't you?

I think the OP is MIA. I hate when posters just go away like that...

Sorry I didn't explain why I didn't go into my reasons when I asked the question, didn't think it was necessary to show people how smart I was like some other people.
I've always preferred to use a regular wireless keyboard and wireless mouse. There'll be a gadget that will synch to the computer. It's a lot easier to type and to navigate. You just have to change your batteries (either run of the mill AA or AAA, depending on what brands of keyboard and mouse you get.
