Where is the rtc battery located on an acer aspire 5517?


It's a little involved.............

All you have to do is completely disassemble the laptop, remove the motherboard, turn it over, and unsolder the Real Time Clock battery.

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Drop down to the subheading Aspire 1200. (1200 in Blue)
Go down to the subheading 5330 (In Blue), scroll across to 5517, and left-click on it.

This is the Service Manual in PDF file form. (Free)

(The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name, {5517}, it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up )

Use the PDF file page number box at the top, and look at Pages 82 and 83.

You may want to have a professional replace the CMOS/RTC battery.
A Lithium battery is a bo-mb when exposed to high heat.

Clear a CMOS password? Ummm, no.
Why?
Because there is a capacitor, or capacitors, that hold a trickle charge for the CMOS password -> INDEFINITELY

There are two small copper pads that have to be briefly shorted out with a jumper wire. How small are these copper pads? Usually the size of this capital letter A.

Where are they located?
Manufacturers do not state, and you can bet Acer isn't about to.
Why?
Deters thievery.

Usually located under a small piece of Mylar plastic 'sheet', and under the Ram Memory module/s, ('Stick'), or under the wireless module.

[Do I worry about thieves receiving this info? No.
Bad karma begets you bad things happening to you, times 3.
Plus thieves are too lazy, and ignorant to try this ]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

To reset my bios password


If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard.

If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove.

If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password.

If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.

Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type, you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it. Good luck!
