Most direct source would be: support.acer.com where they have a email support page with promised 24 hour turn around time. They should be able to provide you, if you provide the serial number for the unit, with the make of the mainboard used in the unit. Even if they don't supply you directly with the info required on the placement of the CMOS battery on the board a quick trip to the site of the mainboard manufacturer should find the info you require.

Same problem but have got acer travelmate 4150


Check on motherbord again you can find cmos cell it is look like round battery cell.
Then pull it for 10 minutes so all bios settings are defaults.
Also you can clear bios with jumper find jumper on motherbord it has 3 -pin 1-2-3 right now jumper is in 1-2 position set it to 2-3 position so your bios is clear.Then again set it to it's original position.
then it not ask for password.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Acer Travelmate 5530 BIOS password reset needed


Ran into same problem with 5530 Travelmate and found the Gap terminal by process of elimination is G69. It is located about 1/2 inch to the top right of Ground#8 about 3 inches below the sync fan. It is not well marked (G69 notation is well to the left), but is distinct in that it is 2 triangular orange terminals. I had to scratch the surface a bit and it took 2 or 3 tries to get it, but it finally worked. PC will power right back down when you get it right, next time you restart password is cleared. F2 from post verified no password existed anymore.

Clearing a BIOS password on a laptop takes a little bit more effort than a desktop. If you are comfortable opening the machine then I will post back more detail but if you are concerned about your warranty or are worried about the safety of your motherboard, professionals are in the best option.
