It looks like a small round hearing aid battery. You will need to access your motherboard to find it which probably involves removing the bottom of your laptop. Hope this helps.

Hi, when I turn on my Acer (aspire 5741 series) laptop it gets stuck on a screen with the acer logo, & says 'press F2 to setup' in the corner. If I press F2 or any other key, the computer just beeps....


This may be caused by any of the below reasons.

  1. New hardware has been recently installed.
  2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
  3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Try removing any newly installed Hardware, if still not working, goto CMOS setup, press F9,if asked, press Y and then F10 and then Y. If still not working, try Formating the C drive, your windows file are corrupt.

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?
