It may well be similar to the procedure for the Travelmate 201T, for which I happen to have produced a YouTube video showing the procedure... hope this helps!

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

CMOS battery is bad


Hi there,
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.

How I can reset bios psw my noitebook travelmate 212t acer? please help me!


Is there a reason to reset the password, I think Acer have put it there to stop people from messing, because they would have fine tuned it. You will have to get in touch with Acer.
Sometimes under the ram slots there is a round flat battery, if there is, take it out and leave for a minute, then reinsert it.

Sorry I can't help any more.

Regards - Anthony

How do i change the cmos battery in a travelmate c110. The time and date and bios settings keep changing. Figure it needs a cmos battery. thanks


The cmos battery is exactly located beneath in between the touchpad and speaker, it's a meticulous job, you could see a twin cable leading through the keyboard area. After removing the keyboard, cut the battery wires at the edge of the old battery and replace the new sealed pack by soldering its wires to the same connection. Be cautioned not to break off the slim edges of the keyboard sides by attempting to reach the battery while lifting up top silver panel from the front near the Infrared.

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.
