Question about Acer TravelMate 521TE Notebook
Ok your problem is likely the battery that keeps up the clock while the computer is turned off. Luckly in most cases it is also a cheap and easy fix that I can tell you how to do so you don't have to see me down at the shop where my boss will charge you 30 bucks. Ok what you are looking for is some coin cells like the kind that you have in your watch. They maybe covered with a blue(most likely, but not always) plastic and have two wires coming out of them to the motherboard. On the motherboard will be a socket that the receptical at the end of the wires plugs in to. If there is not do not try to unsolder the wires this is a multi-layered board and you will short it out. The next type that you may run into is one that is held on the motherboard if it is easly removed, remove it (The ones that are not easy to remove have been soldered there and the contacts that hold them will actually move when you try to move the battery) however if the contacts don't move like in your watch. then just push it out and you can obtain a new battery at a computer store. One that is a little more technical than Staples. Staples is a great store I just don't get my computer batteries there
