Where the cmos battery located


Inside. Some laptops don't have removable CMOS batteries. If you look on the Toshiba website you can download the manual for your laptop. It will show you exactly where it is.

I need to locate the cmos battery so i can replace with new one


Open up your laptop. To do this, you will have to unscrew five or six screws that hold the laptop together. Turn the laptop off and unplug it. Then turn it over and find the screw holes in the bottom of the laptop. Unscrew them and then remove the bottom portion of the laptop
The hardest part of replacing a CMOS battery may be finding the CMOS itself. Usually it is located right in the center of the motherboard (main circuit board of the computer). Look carefully around the motherboard until you find the CMOS. It is round and silver. Typical CMOS batteries are smaller than a quarter and about a 1/4 inch thick. It might say 3V CRV032 on the battery as well.
To remove most CMOS batteries, you need to undo a small silver clasp that fits across the width of the battery. Just pull this clasp up and slide the battery out. Take note of how the battery was set into the clasp. The new battery needs to go in exactly the same way. Once you have the battery out, you can insert the new one. Just lift up the clasp and slide in the battery.

How do i change the cmos battery in a travelmate c110. The time and date and bios settings keep changing. Figure it needs a cmos battery. thanks


The cmos battery is exactly located beneath in between the touchpad and speaker, it's a meticulous job, you could see a twin cable leading through the keyboard area. After removing the keyboard, cut the battery wires at the edge of the old battery and replace the new sealed pack by soldering its wires to the same connection. Be cautioned not to break off the slim edges of the keyboard sides by attempting to reach the battery while lifting up top silver panel from the front near the Infrared.

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.

CMOS battery problem


Hello,
To replace the CMOS battery you should first go into the BIOS and write down the settings so that you can reset them afterwords.

Now unplug any sources of power from your computer (as the picture is of a laptop im going to assume its a laptops CMOS battery you are changing) So make sure to take the regular battery out aswell

Now you must locate the CMOS battery on the motherboard. (it looks like a large watch battery)
Get a new battery of the exact same specs as the battery you removed.
Put the new battery in. Turn on the computer and enter the BIOS. Reset all of the settings and you are good to go :)

Have a great Day!

Hello,
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.

Details on changing it is here: http://www.smartcomputing.com/editorial/article.asp?article=articles/2004/w1510/32w10/32w10.asp&articleid=24031

Forgot my admin passcode


If you don't know the BIOS password the best way to go about this will be to locate the CMOS battery and remove it. The CMOS battery stores the system's setup information (boot sequence, time/date, password, etc.) and most laptops don't have a clear CMOS jumper like desktop motherboards do. If you provide an exact model number we can help you locate the battery.

Otherwise you might have luck unplugging the AC power to the laptop and removing the battery pack. Try again after 24 hours.

Good luck.
