On modern motherboards, the BIOS info is stored in Flash (which of course is non-voltatile) rather than in volatile memory. The CMOS battery is just to keep the RTC (clock) ticking.
So my memory isn't tricking me, is it? It WAS the case that in the past, a dead battery meant the computer may not boot at all, innit?
