    DX58SO The firmware has detected CMOS battery failure detected


      My DX58So with i7 920 is acting up.  The Windows 7 screen goes black and will not wake.  Power down and unplug power. Reboot and get "The firmware has detected a CMOS battery failure. Press Enter to continue."  This happens every day when the computer is idle.  When the computer is being used, no problem.  But I'm getting tired of resetting the date/time and unplugging the power.


      The battery feels loose in the battery holder. (it rocks left to right when you touch it). I suspect bad contact with the positive (up) side.  Can I change the battery holder?  I just put in a new battery after living with the situation for 2 months.  Still same problem with new battery.


      Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks
