Dell 9200 (DXP061) CMOS battery update

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/04/04

If the CMOS battery of a Dell 9200 (DXP061) the BIOS looses all the settings and resets the timestamp to 2007-11-22 midnight.

Date timestamp is likely because that’s the date stamp of BIOS version 2.5.3 which is still the latest for both the Dimension 9200 and XPS 410 (which are identical: XPS was for the consumer market, Dimension for the business market, only a few options were different):

The manual at [Wayback] dimension-9200_owner’s manual_en-us.pdf mentions how to change the battery, but forgets to mention it is a CR2032.

Luckily [Wayback/] How to Replace a CMOS (coin-cell) Battery on Your Dell Desktop | Dell US had that information.
