Where Can I find a screenshot of the motherboard on my netbook?

There it is!

Needed to know WHAT Netbook we're talking about here.....

Problem is the info only brings it down to,.....oh,.........about 7 different Acer Aspire One models, (At 8.9 inches)
That may be a low estimate.

Akin to, "I have a Ford Ranger, and need spark plugs for it."
Question that would come back is, "What engine size is in it?"

So my question is, "What is the Model Number of the Acer Aspire One? It's on the Bottom of the Netbook."
Otherwise you get generic information...........

As asked for;


CMOS Battery is also known as the RTC Battery.
Real Time Clock Battery.
For the above motherboard photo, it is to the upper Left, and near the white long plastic part, above it.

Right below it is a small round Black piezo style of buzzer.
Watch style type of battery, and is either a CR2032, or a smaller style.
Believe it to be on the Top of the motherboard, if memory serves.


Left side/Middle
Usual round watch style battery.


In photo, top of motherboard slightly off center to the Right.
Next to what looks like a small black round Piezo style buzzer.

Indication CMOS battery needs to be replaced?
Message, or Time/Date changes?
Replace the CMOS (RTC) Battery.

Trying to circumvent a password, by removing CMOS battery for a short period of time?
Don't think so. Believe there is a Capacitor, or Capacitors; that hold a trickle charge INDEFINITELY.

Suggest use an ESD wrist strap when working inside the netbook.
Otherwise you will Static shock out the delicate hardware components inside the Netbook.

Just videos that may help your endeavor,

When to change CMOS battery?

You will need to change the battery just when the computer says something like this "System CMOS checksum bad - Default configuration used" or also could say something like "CMOS battery low", etc. That's the time to change the battery.

Sir, I have Intel D485PEBT2 mother board.Whenever I do a cold start it does not boot.If I do CNTL+ALT+DEL it restart and boots.cmos battery is and time ok.I tried several times to change Boot...


I would suggest that you do a factory reset on your mobo. To do it, here are the steps you can follow.

1. make sure that computer is OFF and unplugged from the wall
2. locate the 3-pin jumper on the mobo that is near the cmos battery
3. once located, remove the cmos battery
4. then from the 3-pin jumper, if the jumper is connected to pins 1-2, switch it over to pins 2-3
5. return the cmos battery back
6. plug the computer back then turn it ON
7. you will probably get an option to reset or restore settings back to factory, it that's the case, continue with it
8. after doing so, turn the computer OFF again and unplug it
9 remove cmos battery then return the jumper to it's original position
10. put in the battery back then turn the computer on again
11. go to the bios and set it back to the setting that you have set it before
12. check and see if problem has been resolved

* I would suggest getting a new cmos battery if it's already old

Let me know if you need further assistance

Cleaing CMOS Password

Usually when you remove the battery, there is a jumper that needs to be set as well. They usually place it near the battery. This is the procedure that works the best for me. FIRST - unplug your computer from the wall outlet. SECOND - take out the battery. THIRD - set jumper to clear cmos. Wait about 5 minutes and reverse each procedure.

CMOS Battery do no work

Just change your CMOS battery with a new one and after that goto the bios settings and update the time and dare.
After that just save the settings and then check that the warning message is coming or not.

If its coming then it means you need to change the CMOS jumper settings.

Sometimes this problem happens when your CMOS battery already dead. Replace the CMOS battery and run F4 to setup the date and time. Save it and you back to business.
