Real Time Clock on Compaq Armada M700?

I've got hold of a Compaq Armada M700 and I've just run into an issue with the real time clock - i.e. where is it?

I've checked the [rather limited] bios and it's nowhere to be found! It does have a battery (clock cmos one) so I presume that it must have one?

I've read a few of you on here have this laptop, so how have you got the clock set correctly? Mine keeps defaulting to January 1980 and it's kind of important for me to record the correct time for the logs, etc.

Have you considered replacing the battery? RTCs are known to fail after a few years for this reason (this happens with my Compaq Armada 4131T all the time).
