Backup battery

Discussion in 'Acer' started by CaseOfEmergency, Mar 20, 2010.

  1. Ever since day 1 (almost 3 years ago) my Acer 5613ZWLMi system clock has
    been wrong. Acer service just tells me to go some shop and have the backup
    battery replaced. Shops tell me, they would send the laptop to Acer service.
    What should I do ? Can I replace it by myself ?

    On most machines you can set the clock time and date. That doesn't hold
    for your machine?

    I replaced the cpu in my Acer 3680. If I can do that, you should be able
    to replace the battery, if it is a separate thing, rather than incorporated
    into something else like the BIOS hardware. Did you google for a
    repair/user manual for your machine? (I couldn't find one easily).

    Most often, I thought, the CMOS battery is a flat round thing, about the
    size of a US quarter. But then it may be different for your machine.
