All laptops have a CMOS, or "Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor," battery.
The main purpose for the CMOS battery is to keep the system time, date and BIOS settings even if the computer is turned off or the main battery dies.
Individual Acer Aspire laptop models differ somewhat, but the general steps are the same when replacing a dead CMOS battery.Preparation

Read through the owner's manual for your particular Acer Aspire laptop to determine what kind of CMOS battery you need.
Purchase the battery through Acer or a local or online computer parts dealer.
Turn the laptop off and unplug it.
Also unplug any external hard drives, cameras or other external devices.
Turn the laptop over (bottom facing up), then touch something metal to remove static charge.
Removal
Remove the Phillips screws that secure the motherboard cover (refer to your owner's manual if necessary), then release the cover from the clips on the bottom of the plastic casing.
Lay the cover aside, then locate the CMOS battery cable on the right side of the motherboard. Unplug the cable, then remove the battery.
Installation
Plug the new CMOS battery cable into the motherboard.
Slide the battery partially under the laptop casing to hold it in place, then align the cover with the slots on the bottom of the laptop housing.
Replace the screws, then turn the laptop back over.
Settings
Plug the laptop in and turn it on.
Enter your BIOS (usually by pressing "F1," "F2," F10" or the "Delete" key) before the operating system loads.
Follow the BIOS prompts or refer to your Acer Aspire owner's manual to reset your time, date and desired system settings.
BIOS Reset
Any time the CMOS battery is unplugged for more than a few seconds, your BIOS will be reset to the default manufacturer settings.
If you make any changes to the BIOS that cause problems with your Acer Aspire, unplug the CMOS battery for 3-5 seconds to correct the problem.

Remove bios password on acer aspire 5516


There may be a problem with doing this so bear with me. If your laptop has the Acer E-Power programs on it, there maybe only one way to clear the BIOS password and that is by re-flashing the BIOS with a USB key. If your laptop does not have this software package then the easiest way is to "short" the special jumpers located on the motherboard in the RAM memory compartment. In that compartment is two small points of solder clearly marked CMOS. These two point have to be "shorted" together while the laptop is powered on to clear the BIOS password and reset the CMOS. A small piece of wire will do the trick, but it has to stay connected for at least 45 seconds or untill the laptop boots. Then remove the "short" and reboot only using the ac adapter...leave the main battery out during this procedure. I'll print the guide below as well as trying to include a pic.

Click on the link below, it is the service manual for the 5515. Go to page 140 and follow the directions.
