Hello,
To replace the CMOS battery you should first go into the BIOS and write down the settings so that you can reset them afterwords.

Now unplug any sources of power from your computer (as the picture is of a laptop im going to assume its a laptops CMOS battery you are changing) So make sure to take the regular battery out aswell

Now you must locate the CMOS battery on the motherboard. (it looks like a large watch battery)
Get a new battery of the exact same specs as the battery you removed.
Put the new battery in. Turn on the computer and enter the BIOS. Reset all of the settings and you are good to go :)

Have a great Day!

    Replacing CMOS battery in Acer TravelMate 529TXV step by step:
    1. remove all power sources (unplug cable, remove battery)
    2. remove keyboard (carefully!!) by unsnapping it at the snaps upper and lower edge
    3. in central part you see a metal cover mounted with 2 screws - unscrew those and slide the cower slightly downward (in the direction of the touchpad) to remove it.
    4. You can now see a small battery, that is now very easy to remove. Take it to a nearest battery shop, buy one with EXACTLY THE SAME PARAMETERS! and reverse the whole process.

Problem is with either the CMOS Battery or the Motherboard.

You can reset the CMOS battery.

You can replace the CMOS battery but if laptop is under warranty request for the Motherboard to be replaced.

If laptop is no longer under warranty I would suggest ask a local technician to have the CMOS battery replace which is less costly than replacing the motherboard.

Hope this helps.

How do I replace a dead cmos on acer 4520LCi travelmate laptop? The laptop no longer keeps track of system time when shut off completely. Can you tell me the exact location of the cmos so I can be able to...


Hi,

what you replace is not the CMOS, but the CMOS battery.

On an ACER from those years the CMOS battery looks like a coin, or a coin wrapped in plastic and connected to the motherboard.

On most models from same series the battery is located on the lower side of the motherboard, like on picture below:

On some model the battery may be located underneath the keyboard.

Here disassembly instructions for a similar model.
