    Hi guys

    Got a 2010 Mac Mini which I use as a Multimedia server. In fact it usually is off mains, and I just power it up for music or movie about once a week.
    Since about 2 weeks the date resets and it doesn't connect to my wi-fi, requiring these infos to be entered every time it gets started.

    To start troubleshooting I wanted to replace the CMOS battery... trouble: where is this gizmo located, how do I access it?

    Thanks for any answer/suggestion :)

    At first glance, the date sounds like the battery, however it shouldn't forget wifi settings because of a battery.

    That battery is buried pretty deeply.
