Get the battery off the 4000 asap, doesn't look to bad at the moment but 
they do have a tendency to eat the board taking out the RTC first then 
on to the fast ram slots. If you don't want to strip the motherboard out 
a pair of side cutters can be used to snip the tabs on the battery.

Welcome back to the world of swearing at everything commodore and their 
mothers. Usually followed by "I only moved a F***ing zorro card". Then 
often begging and pleading with it to work again. :D
