If you clear the cmos you are just loading the defalt bios settings but not solving the problem.
In this case you dont have to clear the cmos but instead replace the cmos battery.

My acer travel mate 2000 powers up fine but the monitor is black any solutions?


You can try this:
-Turn off
-Remove battery and remove ac power cable
-Hold down power button without cable and battery for 60 seconds
-Connect your power cable and push power button



Try with another monitor if possible. It may be motherboard issue or bad connectors.

Should i use my new acer 5760 on mains power when possible


It depends upon how much time you run your laptop on battery power, you can keep an eye on the battery charge level when you connect it to mains power. You do not need to keep it on mains power all the time, only when the battery level drops to a low level and needs charging.
The laptop will warn you when it is low on battery power.

Low battery warning message on boot up


I'll give you the info for the cmos battery but afterwards observe any other issues with your notebook. Your notebook is not new anymore and may need other servicing besides a new cmos battery.

It should be housed driectly undeneath you notebook on a panel you can remove that houses the ram.

If you still cant find it, you may have to physicaly take apart the unit. I would search under the keyboard and all four corners of the motherboard and center. Just in case.

Let me know how it goes.

P.s: Be very careful If you are not use to opening up notebooks then I suggest taking unit to a professional for them to replace the cmos battery.

Clear cmos on acer aspire m5100 desktop


There are 2 ways to clear CMOS on any desktop PC.

1st There will be a set of 3 pins near the motherboatd battery with a jumper across them. Move the jumper over and wait 30 secs then move back. Remember to remove the power cable first.

If you can't find the CMOS pins and jumper then remove the power cable and also the 24 pin motherboard power connector and the motherboard battery and leave for 24 hrs.

Replace battery etc and away you go.

Why do you want to clear the CMOS?
