Question about Acer TravelMate 529ATX Notebook
could you help me in knowing where the cmos battery is located inside this old Acer laptop? I'd a look on the bottom panel without success. I guess it is under the keyboard, but I would like to be sure before removing it.
Thanks a lot
All older laptops have the CMOS/RTC battery under the keyboard and usually not in easy access as laptop theft was an issue from day one (password reset). After the keyboard is lifted then either look to the front or rear for two little twisted wires connecting the battery to the motherboard. Some older laptops even have two. And since Acer is a less than supportive manufacturer with a perpetually busy website you might even try looking on EBay for a parts only offering that shows pictures of the motherboard.

I've encountered the same problem. The solution however is rather simple.... except for the troubles in removing the keyboard...
Just on the right of the HD, there is a small 3 volts Lithium battery (not rechargeable, I guess), similar to those used in watches. The code of the battery is CR1220.
Simply replace it (it easily found in electronic shops for a few euros) and all will be ok!
I hope to be helpful!
