    Hi Soulvisitor,

    With the manual, replacement of the battery was very easy. The "old lady" now is back in business.

    Thanks again,
    Bob

First you need to remove the keyboard to gain access to the CMOS battery (Acer call them a RTC battery)

Tell you what give me a email address and I'll send you the service manual.

Cheers

Can you remove cmos Battery from acer aspire 7520


See http://www.acer.co.uk/ac/en/GB/content/drivers then select your Acer Aspire 7520 which will then give you access to the User Guide for this laptop.
In the User Guide - under Troubleshooting Tips and Error Messages it says:Error messages Corrective actionCMOS battery bad Contact your dealer or an authorized service center.CMOS checksum error Contact your dealer or an authorized service center.
This suggests that you would need to take your laptop to a dealer or service centre to get the CMOS battery replaced which would be advised if the laptop is still under warranty.
The alternative would be to open any covers on the underside of the case and see if your can see a small button cell type battery that you may be able to get a replacement for. Please note that you should remove the main battery before opening the laptop case and ensure that you ground yourself to avoid damaging any components with static electricity from your clothing etc.

I am trying to located the area to replace the BIOS Battery on the system


I couldn't find any information about the cmos location, but I've seen videos on finding it on other computers, and you have to get down below the keyboard to find it. On some computers, it can even be beneath the cpu, but on others it's at the front, and easily accessible. You can check out some videos on YouTube, and they show the process on certain computers- that will give you an idea of what you have to disassemble. Otherwise, you will need a service manual, and here is a link to one:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

Can you give a location of R138?
Is it on the easy side? E.q. the side of the motherboard wich is accessible by removing the bottom plate? I see Q24, located close to CPU. If possible, post a picture of R138, with some components visible.

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.

How do I replace a dead cmos on acer 4520LCi travelmate laptop? The laptop no longer keeps track of system time when shut off completely. Can you tell me the exact location of the cmos so I can be able to...


Hi,

what you replace is not the CMOS, but the CMOS battery.

On an ACER from those years the CMOS battery looks like a coin, or a coin wrapped in plastic and connected to the motherboard.

On most models from same series the battery is located on the lower side of the motherboard, like on picture below:

On some model the battery may be located underneath the keyboard.

Here disassembly instructions for a similar model.

Acer M1100 Desktop w/ a different HDD and Optical will not boot


Disconnect the hard drive and dvd from the motherboard
Power on
If you get video and cmos access power off and connect dvd
repeat and connect hard drive
getting video and cmos access has nothing to do with the hard drive...with no hard drive or optical drive you still would have access to cmos
go 1 step at a time to find bottle neck
