Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop
I can't find the CMOS battery. I have taken the top plastic off the machine and some of the bottom plastic. I have a CMOS bios password trying to clear it. I can't find any information on which jumpers to bridge if any. Help, please! :)
A CMOS battery usually looks like a coin. It is a silver lithium battery, similar to wrist-watch battery and is usually placed near the BIOS chip.
Some motherboards - especially laptops - have a different kind of battery.
They are simply a capacitor on its own board attached to the motherboard.
So in order to clear the CMOS you need to remove the capacitor and re-solder it to the motherboard, which you don't want to do without some electrician skills.
