Acer Aspire 9300 Mainboard battery?

I would like to know where is the CMOS battery on the aspire mainboard? i have to reset my bios because of the darn vista update screwed up my graphics card settings on bios. and now my screen is blank all the time... got it working ONCE by plugging the powercord on when the laptop was booting... but it only worked once :( (so the laptop starts the vista fine and all seems to be working exept the graphics card)

    no its not giving out any videosignal out what so ever. tried s-video and external monitor.... maybe i just have to get the new mainbord.. this sucks so bad!

  • jani k. Dec 10, 2008

    dont think its the invertor... because if the invertor would be broken the s-video and ext. monitor would still be working.

You have to strip the laptop down to get to the battery, if your lucky you might find it under the keyboard, if you think its an update that has messed up the bios settings you can return the bios settings to default, just plug an external monitor and go into the bios to reset it, if you get the same result with the external monitor (no output when you have used the Fn and one of the F keys to switch to extenal mode) then the problem may be with the invertor in the laptop screen

keep us informed

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya Van Pham.

I have published a guide that deals with this very topic, it is entitled How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
You also may want to see the following guide entitled, How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!

Basically you will need to remove the CMOS battery found on the mainboard for a few seconds and then reinsert it again.

Take care!

To reset BIOS password, you must remove CMOS battery, not regular one. CMOS battery is located somewhere on the mainboard, so you have to open laptop.

Acer Aspire 9300-3716 password


My advice to you is technical. You need to reset the CMOS on the motherboard internally. As for the password in vista unless you know it you will more than likely have to re-install vista or do a systme recovery by using the e-recovery partition that comes stock with ACER computers. I do not advise you to try resetting the cmos if your not technically capable

Big problems


start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup load system defaults then exit saving changes.

if it didnt work

get to the mainboard
there is a jumper near the cmos battery usually shows the
word (jbat) near it , try to change its position for some
seconds while power is off , this way will clear cmos and set the
mainboard bios to default settings.
start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup then exit saving changes.
