Getting to the cmos battery

\015 Can you tell me how to get to the cmos battery or a manual that will show me howfor an acer aspire 1642.\015

Answers :

You'll have to remove the bottom and POSSIBLY the entire board. The battery is between the size of a nickel & a quarter.
If it's like the Acer that I have,It should be located eather under the memory chips,or the wireless card on the bottom of the laptop.
