I don't know if there are multiple revisions where the CMOS battery located, but this information is from my 5110H, built in September 2003.
The CMOS battery is underneath the motherboard, between the main battery, memory, and wireless card. The approximate location is shown by the green circle in the picture below:where to find the cmos battery on Averatec 5110 - 0692552.jpg You might be able to just see it by opening the memory cover and looking sideways into the case.
To actually get to it, I think you will have to take it completely apart and remove the motherboard. I don't think there's enough room to pull it into the memory bay, but I guess you could try that first.

The battery is connected to the motherboard with wires and a connector, rather than being in a holder. It's stuck to the motherboard with thin double-sided tape, but that comes off fairly easily.

The wires run around the right and lower edges of the thin black plastic chip cover shown above, to the white connector at the lower left corner of the cover. No need to peel off the entire black cover- you can lift the edges to get the wire out.
Since my battery is still good, I didn't cut open the shrink wrap around it. So i don't know whether the wires are welded/soldered on or if there's some sort of holder inside.

They are tac welded to the battery under the shrink wrap. Battery and wires may need to replaced as a unit

Changed boot sequence in bios, now I cant access bios, and screen is blank. is there an easy way to reset the laptop back to factory?


The only way to reset the BIOS is to take the laptop appart, remove the CMOS battery and short the reset jumper on the motherboard. Unfortunately this is unrealistic unless you are handy with taking things appart and putting them back together.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I have an Averatec 5400 laptop. It will not hold its cmos settings. Everytime it boots up it reverts to January 2003 and I have to reset the settings. Any help would be appreciated.


You need to replace the CMOS battery. This will be under a "Flap" under the laptop. It is a small round thin Cell. 3.6 v similar to a Watch battery. link below to see what I mean. http://www.alllaptops.co.uk/Cmosbatt/Averatec.htm

CMOS BATTERY


Gateway 450ROG CMOS BatterySmall internal battery that maintains calendar and clock settings.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not the battery that powers your laptop; it only maintains certain internal settings. If you need a main battery, please refer to the page on our web site for your laptop model.

CMOS batteries are located on the motherboard; if you are not comfortable with the inner workings of your laptop, you may want to consider having the battery installed by a qualified technician.

Here is the link to their site for your cmos battery

Suddenly my Averatec won't start


It could be your Power Supply or your CMOS Battery is dead. For Power Supply, you can test by try to connect your Power Cord without battery to see for any PowerPush. If it is still not on then you can check your CMOS Battery for any failure by test the good one from other similar laptop since you had two. I hope this help.

Where is the cmos battery on the Averatec 3200


I can't find step by step instructions for dismantling your laptop (I found them for a Toshiba), but in general the CMOS battery on any PC is on the motherboard (this includes laptop motherboards). You'll have to take the system apart, including taking the keyboard out, etc. etc. to get to it. Take a look at how a Toshiba 6100 is taken apart for an example: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba6100/Toshiba_Satellite_Pro6100_dismantle_1.htm It's not for the faint of heart so I'd recommend taking it to a local repair shop ...
