Acer Travelamte 515 TE cmos battery replacement

Hello!

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.

Hi!

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!

Step 1:
This might not be your laptop it might give you a guide into the cmos battery
The CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) battery saves basic settings on your computer. If the date and time function on your Acer notebook isn't working, chances are your CMOS battery needs to be replaced. Separate from your laptop's main battery, the CMOS battery is about the and shape of a coin and is located inside of your computer. Changing the battery yourself isn't the simplest task that relates to your Acer, but it isn't terribly difficult either. Here's how.

Open the notebook screen until you can easily access the keyboard. Locate the plastic bar that borders the top of the keyboard. Insert the flat head screwdriver at one end of the bar and gently pry it up until you can grip the edge with your fingers. Pry the other side of the bar up with the screwdriver and pull out the entire bar, being careful to mind the ribbon cord that connects the keyboard to the computer. Remove the two screws on either side of the keyboard that secure it to the computer. Slide the keyboard up and place it to the side. Remove the four screws on the exposed metal plate that covers the motherboard and remove it. You should now see the CMOS battery in the bottom-right-hand corner of the motherboard. Remove the battery by gently pulling it up and off the motherboard. Replace it with the same model battery (available at any computer store or online). Reassemble the computer the same way you took it apart. Acer TravelMate 6592G Keyboard Replacement Guide http://tomkaminski.com/acer-travelmate-6592g-keyboard-replacement-guide

First you need to remove the keyboard to gain access to the CMOS battery (Acer call them a RTC battery)

How do I change the CMOS battery of a acer travelmate 4652?


Hello,

On all laptops it is theoretically possible to replace the CMOS battery. To do so you need to strip the entire laptop.

However, your issue seems to be mainboard related as the unit still keep settings when on power or on battery - Thus your mainboard might be damaged, or bugged up.

CMOS battery are standard and you should get them in any electric store that sells watch batteries etc.

How do I replace a dead cmos on acer 4520LCi travelmate laptop? The laptop no longer keeps track of system time when shut off completely. Can you tell me the exact location of the cmos so I can be able to...


Hi,

what you replace is not the CMOS, but the CMOS battery.

On an ACER from those years the CMOS battery looks like a coin, or a coin wrapped in plastic and connected to the motherboard.

On most models from same series the battery is located on the lower side of the motherboard, like on picture below:

On some model the battery may be located underneath the keyboard.

Here disassembly instructions for a similar model.

My laptop does the same thing - i think it is because you either have a new charger or your laptop is just getting old.
