Well, I found out which way round to put the battery (I found a picture somewhere on the net of a motherboard the same as mine with the battery installed and copied that).
However, it hasn't solved the problem, that the machine still sometimes fails to start up and the clock is sometimes reset when it does.
Any other ideas what could be causing it?

Hi Jack Harris1-
Did you try another battery? Is it a name-brand battery from a reputable source?
When you say that it still fails to start up and the clock is reset is it better than it was?
If the machine is now better than it was, but still exhibiting the same symptoms, the cheapest thing to try is a new battery. If things are the same you likely have a different problem.
