Hi,

As far as i can remember if you take out the main battery then the cmos battery is just under neath that one its yellow from what i can remember and it has two wires that plug into the board on the laptop now when you buy the new battery it should come with these wires attatched and the connector.
Ive given you the link to a few sites that tell you how to take your laptop apart and about the battery just in case you have any other problems.
Let me know if you cant locate the battery and ill send you some more links with pictures ok

If its not located under the battery then the only other place they fitted them on an acer is Below the keyboard/palm rest assembly. Remove screws on bottom of laptop to gain access, the problem with this is it can be difficult to gain access to the under side of the keyboard but those links below should be of some help.

Also if you go to google and type in acer 3690 cmos battery location
or type in how to replace cmos battery on acer 3690
this will then list loads of sites that will give you instructions on locating the battery, but have a look under the main battery first and if its not their then its going to be under the keyboard, just follow the instructions below to get to it.

Remember you are doing this at your own risk its not something you should be doing if you are unsure as you could damage your laptop further.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
