Have you checked to make sure that the cmos jumper has not been left to the reset position?

You said the battery is good and the next step would be to make sure the jumper that clears the cmos is in the correct position and is set properly to prevent cmos from losing the settings.

Battery dead & BIOS reset. CD & DVD drives lost.


first you will need to replace the cmos on the system board(or have a qualified computer service tech. do it). then you will need to access the bios settings by Pressing F1 immediately after powering on the computer. once in the bios, you can set the correct date and time. Also, you will need to check the drive settings to verify that the hard drive and any CD/DVD drives are recognized. once done, then exit the BIOS being sure to chose "save and exit", then allow your PC to boot normally. this should fix your date and drive issues. if not then the motherboard may be defective.

All laptops have a CMOS, or "Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor," battery.
The main purpose for the CMOS battery is to keep the system time, date and BIOS settings even if the computer is turned off or the main battery dies.
Individual Acer Aspire laptop models differ somewhat, but the general steps are the same when replacing a dead CMOS battery.Preparation

Read through the owner's manual for your particular Acer Aspire laptop to determine what kind of CMOS battery you need.
Purchase the battery through Acer or a local or online computer parts dealer.
Turn the laptop off and unplug it.
Also unplug any external hard drives, cameras or other external devices.
Turn the laptop over (bottom facing up), then touch something metal to remove static charge.
Removal
Remove the Phillips screws that secure the motherboard cover (refer to your owner's manual if necessary), then release the cover from the clips on the bottom of the plastic casing.
Lay the cover aside, then locate the CMOS battery cable on the right side of the motherboard. Unplug the cable, then remove the battery.
Installation
Plug the new CMOS battery cable into the motherboard.
Slide the battery partially under the laptop casing to hold it in place, then align the cover with the slots on the bottom of the laptop housing.
Replace the screws, then turn the laptop back over.
Settings
Plug the laptop in and turn it on.
Enter your BIOS (usually by pressing "F1," "F2," F10" or the "Delete" key) before the operating system loads.
Follow the BIOS prompts or refer to your Acer Aspire owner's manual to reset your time, date and desired system settings.
BIOS Reset
Any time the CMOS battery is unplugged for more than a few seconds, your BIOS will be reset to the default manufacturer settings.
If you make any changes to the BIOS that cause problems with your Acer Aspire, unplug the CMOS battery for 3-5 seconds to correct the problem.

Cmos battery error failure


The CMOS (BIOS) battery keeps the computer'a comfiguration and the Date & Time settings in the CMOS (BIOS) chip in its memory. When the CMOS (BIOS) battery is flat these configuration information is lost.
Replace the CMOS battery with a new one, in most cases this battery is a lithium 3 volt battery type CR2032 and it is coin size battery 18mm in dia.(check it to make sure the type of battery is installed on your motherboard).
When you replace this battery then go into the BIOS and set the Date & Time etc.

Where is the battery that powers the Internet time/ date?


The motherboard BIOS battery keeps the motherboard setting and the date and time correct just like a watch battery. This BIOS battery is usually a 3 volt lithium battery, it is a coin size battery approx. 20mm in diameter most likely a CR2030 battery.
If you have a Internet time program that connects to the Internet, it will synchronize the computer's time with the Internet time.

You just set up the time in BIOS setting. To get the BIOS just press delete during your laptop is on. Go to CMOS to change the time. Use arrow key to select after that you need to save just press F10 to save settings.

Hi. The clock on my Acer will not keep the correct time any more and it doesnt change dates on the calendar either. Do I need to change a battery in my motherboard?


If you change the BIOS date and time and when you boot up next time and the date and time has changed back or is incorrect, then the most likely fault is a flat BIOS battery. Replace the BIOS battery, it maybe a coin type lithium 3volt battery. this is the most common type used in motherboards is a CR2030 lithium battery.
