    Here is a link for a good definition of CMOS.

    http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/C/CMOS.html

    CMOS is also used to reference the computer BIOS. In the BIOS is the date, time, and all the Hardware settings, and in some cases some of the software settings. If, for what ever reason, the computer loses power to the CMOS then it will forget the BIOS settings and the computer may not boot. The CMOS battery is usually a small coin battery, but not always.
