Is this a LAN card that you need a battery for or the BIOS battery for a motherboard?

OK Just another gotcha scam, keep asking for more money each time you ask a question???? Well FORGET IT And I will advise my friends and neighbors not to use this site ever

This is not a scam, there is just an automatic pop-up asking if you would like remote assistance. You can ignore it as it does not apply to this situation. If you would like a refund, that is no problem, but I would like to help you find this BIOS battery. If you would like to continue could you tell me the motherboard model if you know it?

I would have joined if you had answered my question straight up, but no you wont answer any question unless you aditional monies, that my friend is a scam and you know it, I have notified my credit card company and have sent copies of all correspondence to the so they know, do not try to charge any amount at any time. Should have given the five dollar answer then you would have had a life long member. Too Bad for you. Keep up the good work hope life stays good for yuou

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
