    You can find the manual at the link below: http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=manual&maincat_no=1&prod_no=573

    Replacing the battery should just be a matter of unplugging the pc, popping out the old battery and putting a new one in.

      I know how to put the battery in, I didn’t want to losing the bios settings. The battery is easy to get to so can I change it while the computer is running.

    I would strongly recommend that you not try to swap the battery out while the computer is running. A single misstep or slip of a piece of metal can short out and kill the motherboard.

    Your best option would be to write down (or take some pics with a digital camera) all the custom bios settings you’ve done, and then go ahead with the battery swap.
