QuestionLaptop CMOS battery question. Pin

I've got an Acer Aspire 8920 laptop which I bought about four years ago. It's still going okay with one annoying habit and that's its inability to keep proper time. When I power it on after a few hours switched off the date and time could be as daft as 2003 as it is 2033. Neither the month, day or time bear any resemblance to the actual.

I've never had to replace the CMOS battery in any PC or laptop but maybe this is the first time I now need to. The CMOS battery isn't a traditional coin-like battery. Instead, it's a sort of loom-connected type of battery which is buried in some awkward to get at location.

Question is: do you think it's the CMOS battery that's doing it? Once I've powered on I can eventually synchronise the date and time and it keeps time okay. Only during power-off does the time go a bit mental. If not the CMOS does anything else come to mind?
