thanks!

 

I would have taken it out for 10 seconds, put it back in, tried it and then moved on from there. That is, if it failed, then I would have taken it out for 30 seconds. Failing, that, 60 seconds. Failing that, 5 minutes. Failing that, I'd take it out and go do something for an hour and come back. This way, if it didn't fail after taking it out for only 10 seconds, then I'd be back up and running in no time.

 

So, there are no "chances" to be taken, only time to be wasted if you don't spend a minute or two (or 5 minutes at the most) testing first to see how long you need to have your battery out for in order to reset your CMOS.
