    cmos battery


    Is there a default in set up after replacing the cmos battery or should you take a picture with the flash off just in case?
    I cannot think of any other way to know the information as print screen etc cannot be used.
    TY

    Replacing the CMOS battery will probably reset the BIOS settings to their defaults. Unless you or someone else has changed the settings, that will be the same as what you have now.

    You could use a camera (or smartphone) with the flash turned off to record the settings. Or, you could just use pencil and paper. (Dell typically provides a fairly limited selection of settings. That's not intended as criticism.)

    Some motherboards (e.g. Asus) allow you to save (in non-volatile memory such as a USB drive) a snapshot of settings and/or different configurations.
