Where is the bios/cmos battery located on a aceraspire 5315-2698? I cant get past the password screen.


Hi,

The battery in Acer Aspire 5315 is very visible has a blue ring of plastic or rubber around it. follow the leads which are very short and short the circuit. no risk of damage to systemboard)
1. Try to remove cover
2. Find battery on the far right hand of the board
3. Take a small flat screwdriver and contact the two leads from the battery
4. Power it on and power it off to reset the BIOS
5. This should work for passwords
6. Moreover, it resets to default configuration

Please share the results.

Regards,

Have an acer aspire 5315 laptop. I cannot reset the HDD password, so I can get on the computer


Remove the Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.

Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup. See the below picture for reference
