You BIOS setup at the time of bootup should have a reset to factory settings. However if it requires a password you may have trouble getting into it.

Some notbooks have a battery you can pull off the motherboard to reset it back to factory settings. It usually is a small lithium battery.

How do I replace the cmos battery


http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

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.

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/For-acer-TravelMate-6492-6492G-notebook-motherboard-MBTLN0B001-Tested-ree-Shipping/555541838.html

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,

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ACER-TRAVELMATE-6292-SERIES-6292-812G25Mn-CMOS-BIOS-BATTERY-/230795196555?pt=UK_Computing_Other_Computing_Networking&hash=item35bc77388b

There is a little round watch type battery in that Yellow, and that Black plastic 'bag'.

Losing date, and time? Replace CMOS/RTC Battery.
Need to reset, or wipe out a BIOS password, or HDD password?
(HarDDrive)
Not THAT way.

Go to Page 53. (Adobe Reader page number box at top)

Page 168 - Bottom View of motherboard - Number 13 in the chart -
CLRP2 - CMOS clear
(Clear CMOS jumper)

Instructions on Page 169

The Service Manual doesn't show the location of the CMOS battery.
DOES state it in Troubleshooting / Random Loss of BIOS Settings Page 148 at the Bottom.

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,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/category/1-acer-laptops/

Could I be wrong about the CMOS Battery location?

Moi?

Yes.

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.

Take care.

Bios password problem


Guide to remove BIOS password of Acer computer (Both Laptop & Desktop).

There are four ways to remove the BIOS password

1. Reset Password BIOS via Backdoor BIOS Password.
2. Reset Password BIOS via Software.
3. Reset Password BIOS via hardware.
4. Reset Password BIOS via default manufacturers.

You can contact acer support or search internet for Acer's default BIOS password and that would be real easy for you, But if you are comfortable enough to use Dos you can also try this method.

OK, here is my guide to Remove Acer Bios password computer via Software. This has been done on testing machine Laptop Acer Aspire 3620/ Travel Mate 2420. Anyway, I'm not sure it will work on every Acer PC/Laptop so just consider to do at your own risk, I’m not responsible for any damages caused by this guide.

As we know most of Acer computer (Laptop & Desktop) allow us to setup BIOS in Microsoft Windows (9x/XP/Vista) environment. Great, this is the powerful that help us to remove the BIOS password because all we know if we enter Setup Utility at the boot time we have only three times of filling the password and if all wrong then the system will halt. frown.gif

The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup in Microsoft Windows is “Acer eSettings Management” which comes with the CD when we buy Acer PC/Laptop. If you lost the CD then just come to Acer website to download the program.

Before you can install “Acer eSettings Management” you have to install program called: “Acer Empowering Technology” so you’d better to download both of them from Acer website and install & restart your computer to be ready for the job. Here is the link of Acer website, just come there and sellect right series/model of your computer to download these programs:

Code: ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com or

Code: ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com
Another one program is also very important we will need called: “CmosPwd” - CmosPwd is a cmos/bios password recovery tool. CmosPwd is under GNU Public License. You can freely distribute it. It can be compiled under Dos, Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD.

Download it here:

Code: http://www.cgsecurity.org/cmospwd-5.0.zip Guide to install CmosPwd and remove password:

1. Download & extract to a folder. I put it in drive D like this: d:\ cmos
2. To work on cmos memory, ioperm need to be installed and running. ioperm gives direct port I/O access for specified ports to user-mode process (ring 3) using Ke386SetIoAccessMap and Ke386IoSetAccessProcess kernel functions.

Log on to Windows as Administrator priviledges and do as follow: (see picture):

a. Click Start-->Run: type CMD hit Enter on your keyboard.
b. now us the CD command of Dos to come to d:\cmos\windows. (here is: d: hit enter; cd cmos hit enter; cd windows hit enter).
c. when you are already in d:\cmos\windows in drive D then: type “ioperm.exe –i” hit enter.
d. to start ioperm service: type “net start ioperm” hit enter.
e. ok, type: “Cmospwd_win.exe /k” hit enter, we will see:

1 - Kill cmos
2 - Kill cmos (try to keep date and time)
0 - Abort
Choice :

Type 1 and hit Enter to clear cmos.

90238142zh6.jpg


f. run the Acer eSettings Management program: start-->program-->Acer Empower Technology-->Acer eSettings Management.

37400896td6.jpg

g. now come to the: Bios Password to see: if you still see password enable, that means we fail but if we see they are Disable so we are done. Remember if we success remove password then we have to create a password for it and then remove it and click Apply to save to cmos memory. This is very important because sometimes we see it Disable but when reboot the computer they are Enable again cuz the password is still in the CMOS.

That’s all, good luck & don’t forget to set an easy password later.

This is likely your CMOS battery dying on you and resetting your computer's date. Hitting F2 I belive it is will allow you to access your bios and on the second page you can see your date. It will likely be Jan 1st, 1988. Use your number keys to adjust the date and use your tab key to move between month, day, year, ect.

This is a temporary fix however and you will have to do this often until you have your CMOS battery replaced. I have a Travelmate that has the same problem.
