    Tricaster 455 Motherboard CMOS Battery

    Can someone tell me what battery is used on the Tricaster 455 motherboard? System has been upgraded to a 460, but originally a 455 motherboard. I can't read the number on it because it's so reflective and shiny. I figure I need to change it since the system is about 5 years old. I want to have the right one on hand before I pull this one out.

    It should be a CR2032 coin battery.

    I wonder how long the BIOS memory remains entact while you change the battery? It doesn't make sence to have the TriCaster powered while the battery is changed. I'm not even sure if one could change the battery while powered.
