SOURCE: ACER ASPIRE 4730Z. How do I clear the CMOS (password)?

Below is the steps for clearing the password. Below that is the link for the manual, the picture of the jumper tabs is on pg. 153, good luck

Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check

If users set BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and/or User Password) for a security reason, BIOS will ask
the password during systems POST or when systems enter to BIOS Setup menu. However, once it is
necessary to bypass the password check, users need to short the HW Gap to clear the password by the
following steps:
• Power Off a system, and remove HDD, AC and Battery from the machine.
• Open the back cover of the machine, and find out the HW Gap on M/B as picture.
• Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap.
• Plug in AC, keep the short condition on the HW Gap, and press Power Button to power on the
system till BIOS POST finish. Then remove the tool from the HW Gap.
• Restart system. Press F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu.
• If there is no Password request, BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, please follow the steps and
try again.
NOTE: The steps are only for clearing BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and User Password).

SOURCE: Replacing CMOS battery - Acer aspire 3000

Before you begin, back up your data and remove the battery. CMOS Bios will be lost but will reset on restart.

    Instructions
  1. Step 1 Open the laptop computer's screen and lay it back as far as it will go. Be careful not to stress the screen and cause any damage, but press it hard if needed.
  2. Step 2 Press a flathead screwdriver under the front of the plastic bar lining the back of the laptop's keyboard. Pry the bar up slightly and hold it with one hand.
  3. Step 3 Pry up the other side of the bar with the flathead screwdriver and fully pull out the bar. Keep its ribbon cord connected and set the bar on the laptop's screen.
  4. Step 4 Remove the two Phillips screws securing the computer's keyboard. Then, slide the keyboard up and out to remove it. Again, do not remove its ribbon cord, and set the keyboard over the laptop's touch pad.
  5. Step 5 Remove the four screws securing the cover plate over the motherboard and remove it as well.
  6. Step 6 Locate the CMOS battery at the bottom right corner of the motherboard.
  7. Step 7 Remove the battery by prying it up gently with the flathead screwdriver. Then, replace the battery with a new one of the exact same specifications.
  8. Step 8 Replace all the parts in the laptop in the reverse order that you removed them. -Battery Replacement

Before you start

1) Read through the owner's manual for your particular Acer Aspire laptop to determine what kind of CMOS battery you need.

2) Purchase the battery through Acer or a local or online computer parts dealer.

3) Turn the laptop off and unplug it. Also unplug any external hard drives, cameras, or other external devices.

4) Turn the laptop over (bottom facing up), then touch something metal to remove static charge.


Removal of the CMOS battery

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.


The battery should look something like this


slasher_x_0.jpg Plugging the new battery in
Plug the new CMOS battery cable into the motherboard. Slide the battery partially under the laptop casing (somewhere 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.

Finalizing
1) Turn the laptop on.
2)Enter your BIOS (usually by pressing the "Delete" key) before the operating system loads.
3) Follow the BIOS prompts or refer to your Acer Aspire owner's manual to reset your time, date and desired system settings.

Reason: Anytime 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 to 5 seconds to correct the problem.
