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. Acer TravelMate 6592G Keyboard Replacement Guide http://tomkaminski.com/acer-travelmate-6592g-keyboard-replacement-guide

Acer travelmate 2700 bios password and where is the CMOS battry on the mother board


Hi there,

your bios battery is soldered into the mainboard, its under the keyboard, next to the modem board and the bios chip itself.


10_9_2011_7_43_59_am.jpg

In order to get to the battery you would first have to dissasemble the laptop, remove the keyboard, power buttons, and the top of the machine. You may also have to remove the display if its holding the top of the cover in place.

Removing the battery is no guarantee of reseting the password. You need to study the bios chip and find out which pins of it you need to short in order to reset its memory. In some cases the password might be stored on another chip.

ACER TRAVELMATE 602TER: NEED TO REPLACE CMOS BATTERY. WHERE IS IT LOCATED? IF UNDER KEYBOARD, HOW DO I LIFT THE KEYBOARD (I DON'T SEE ANY SCREWS OR A FRAME AROUND THE KEYBOARD!) THE ONLY PIECE...


most netbooks allow the keyboard to be lifter out ,,upwards after inserting a thin piece of plastic/screwdriver at the reccommended points around the keyboard,usually there are tiny sprung clips that need to be pushed,you can hardly see them ,be carefull if you manage to lift the board out be gentle and do not tug or force it as it will be connected with a ribbon type cable to a very fragile plastic clip/socket.
Even this socket/clip will have another plastc sprung device holding the ribbon cable in so be carefull with it.
The CMOS battery is just like a watch battery held to the motherboard with a steel sprung clip,you might have to unscrew the motherboard first rarely this battery might be soldered in place so you might need to have an iron handy.

Where is the location of the Cmos battery for my


You really need a service manual to try & locate the CMOS battery. With laptops the CMOS battery can be different on each model. These are often located on the motherboard below the keyboard, but a service manual should help you.

Cmos battery for C110 TCI


The CMOS Battery is behinf the main battery behind a platic shield. The shield is relitivly fragile and glued around the edges. Care should be used removing it to prevent ripping. The battery itself is 3" flat pack glued to the case. Mine was wrapped in a black heat shrink with two wires exiting.
The connector is under the keyboard. You will need to remove the 6 scres from the bottom of the case to release and remove the keyboard. The keyboard ribbon cable is attached through a ZIF socket. Be sure and release the cable before removimng the keyboard. Youll have to trace the CMOS battery leads to determine the correct connector.
I found a Maxell ML2032 rechargable battery. Unfotunatly all the 3" flat pack batteries I have found are LITHIUM ION and not rechargeable. If I find a replacement I will post the information.
