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.
Yes. TravelMate 6492, not TravelMate 6493. The RTC Battery is still in the same place.
Above the pink processor socket......see the Yellow round object? It actually has wires coming from it, that end in a small white connector. Not the same color, not the same series, but gives you a better look at this type of RTC Battery setup,
Just an average laptop disassembly video I found. Skip to 3:40 or so to start. You SHOULD wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's aligator clip attached to a good ground source. He is AT least working on a wood table top.
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.

To disable the bios password on your laptop, you will need to remove the
cmos battery on your laptop for some minutes and insert back, the cmos
battery is located on the motherboard of your laptop, once the cmos
battery is removed from the motherboard for some minutes, the bios
password will be reset, and the bios password will be disable.
cmos is located in the motherboard. You need to remove the battery, hard drive, optical drive, screws on your keyboard to see the motherboard. Then there is a CMOS battery which is a circle shaped with silver plating on it..
Without taking the laptop apart and removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard,, you can try these techniques, but they are technical. visit the following websites to learn... http://rahulhackingarticles.wetpaint.com/page/Clear+BIOS+Password,+All+tricks+! or http://www.elfqrin.com/docs/biospw.html Good luck James. ----PLEASE CLICK 4 THUMBS UP 4 ME!!!------

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
B. By Using Software:
I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.: BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

If you can't find the jumper, just remove the CMOS battery wait for 1/2 + hour and the re-insert the battery. This will reset the BIOS back to the default settings and you then need to set the Time & Date.
It may not remove the BIOS password if the laptop stores the password on an EEPROM chip.
You will have to turn it upside down and start removing compartments untill you find it. (As you did not give me the model of the computer I can't tell you exactly where it is)
The CMOS battery is located on the motherboard and it looks like a large watch battery.
