Drop down to the 'paragraph' that starts with - Travelmate 200. (200 in Blue) Go down to the 7th line (5730 in Blue), scroll across, and click on - 6493 in Blue.
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files. After you click on the file name (6493) it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up. The file is downloading in the background.
The CMOS Battery, or also known as the RTC Battery, (Real Time Clock), is on the BOTTOM of the motherboard.
Scroll down a little to the two Large views of the motherboard; 1) The first view shown is the Bottom side of the motherboard. Has the blue - For Acer Travelmate 6942 6942G notebook motherboard MBTLN0B001 and tested+ree, above it.

Perhaps some of these Acer pictorial guides will also help,
Look down in the Battery Compartment for the CMOS Battery, or in a small hidden panel down in the Battery Compartment. Also look on the top of the motherboard, once the Palm Rest Cover (Top Cover) is removed.
For additional questions please post in a Comment.
members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.
if that don't work, acer support charges 100.00 to reset the password, What a rip-off.
