Step 1: This might not be your laptop it might give you a guide into the cmos battery The CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) battery saves basic settings on your computer. If the date and time function on your Acer notebook isn't working, chances are your CMOS battery needs to be replaced. Separate from your laptop's main battery, the CMOS battery is about the and shape of a coin and is located inside of your computer. Changing the battery yourself isn't the simplest task that relates to your Acer, but it isn't terribly difficult either. Here's how.
Open the notebook screen until you can easily access the keyboard. Locate the plastic bar that borders the top of the keyboard. Insert the flat head screwdriver at one end of the bar and gently pry it up until you can grip the edge with your fingers. Pry the other side of the bar up with the screwdriver and pull out the entire bar, being careful to mind the ribbon cord that connects the keyboard to the computer. Remove the two screws on either side of the keyboard that secure it to the computer. Slide the keyboard up and place it to the side. Remove the four screws on the exposed metal plate that covers the motherboard and remove it. You should now see the CMOS battery in the bottom-right-hand corner of the motherboard. Remove the battery by gently pulling it up and off the motherboard. Replace it with the same model battery (available at any computer store or online). Reassemble the computer the same way you took it apart.

Drop down to the 'paragraph' that starts with - Travelmate 200. (200 in Blue) Go down to the 7th line (5730 in Blue), scroll across, and click on - 6493 in Blue.
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files. After you click on the file name (6493) it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up. The file is downloading in the background.
The CMOS Battery, or also known as the RTC Battery, (Real Time Clock), is on the BOTTOM of the motherboard.
Scroll down a little to the two Large views of the motherboard; 1) The first view shown is the Bottom side of the motherboard. Has the blue - For Acer Travelmate 6942 6942G notebook motherboard MBTLN0B001 and tested+ree, above it.
Yes. TravelMate 6492, not TravelMate 6493. The RTC Battery is still in the same place.
Above the pink processor socket......see the Yellow round object? It actually has wires coming from it, that end in a small white connector. Not the same color, not the same series, but gives you a better look at this type of RTC Battery setup,
Just an average laptop disassembly video I found. Skip to 3:40 or so to start. You SHOULD wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's aligator clip attached to a good ground source. He is AT least working on a wood table top.
Perhaps some of these Acer pictorial guides will also help,
Look down in the Battery Compartment for the CMOS Battery, or in a small hidden panel down in the Battery Compartment. Also look on the top of the motherboard, once the Palm Rest Cover (Top Cover) is removed.

cmos battery on your laptop for some minutes and insert back, the cmos
battery is located on the motherboard of your laptop, once the cmos
battery is removed from the motherboard for some minutes, the bios
password will be reset, and the bios password will be disable.
it is inside,on the motherboard,it is a watch type battery or a vinyl coated battery pack that plugs in the board,if it is the watch battery type,be carefull removing it.the holder can break off the motherboard very easy,might be able to get to it by removing the plastic piece above the keyboard that surrounds the power button,otherwise dissassembly will be necessary
If Your Travelmate comes with Preloaded operating system.You must have operating system Cd. If it is not u r not having operating system CD. may u r trying using driver and documentation cd.It is not a bootable operating CD.
2.if u r using right cd then go to bios setting select option cd as first bootable device.
Unplug AC power. Remove the battery. If there is a CMOS battery (a rarity for laptops now), remove that as well. Press and hold the power button for at least 10 seconds. Replace batteries. Reconnect AC power. Turn on machine. CMOS should be reset to defaults.
