What's also odd is that I tried the old battery again, and it still worked.

Either way, I'll change it for a new one. Just in case. Thank you sir, you deserve a rep+.
Could've been corrosion on where the battery was touching the contacts. it's highly doubtful you got the battery back in exactly the same way, and pulling it out would scrape some of that possible corrosion away anyway.

BTW my suggestion was going to be firearms or thermite(aluminum oxide powder + iron oxide powder, lit with a magnesium strip or sparkler), both legal in the US at least.

Hook a microwave transformer up to it.

Box it and get a new mobo. You don't have to kill a DFI board that used to be extremely solid. These threads are... well, you know. If you really want to kill it, throw it around screaming till it's destroyed. Then tell us how you felt while doing it.

You could give it to me and I would test the crap out of it to make sure she don't work. Then I can either shoot trap with a 12 gauge, or hook up some extremely high voltage stuff up to it and watch it go boom! I would even upload a video of it!

I've ran my computer w/o a CMOS battery for over 6 months now, no problems whatsoever.
Unplug your computer from the wall and enjoy

My board is also giving me lots of problems. In fact, that sounds like the faulty motherboard I received when I bought mine, I had to run the flash program with an option to erase nvram or something like that (I couldn't since the system could not boot anymore).


If you want to kill your mobo, get an old 12v (or 5, whatever) adapter, cut the connector and split both cables (+12 and neutral). Plug the adapter into the socket and gently stroke the motherboard. Pay special care to the pci express and ram slots, and the cpu socket. I hope I've used the right words and you can get a picture of what I mean
