i found the service manual at

i found the service manual at tim@tim.id.au looking for the jumper location it showed g-77 to be location but couldn,t find it on my motherboard, but i did find two triangles together on my motherboard under the lower cover there is number g-69 with a line that goes to the two triangles,they were the only ones on the m/b,i shutoff laptop then i then removed the hdd, the battery , then plugged in the power cord , then used a piece of thin wire to hold on the triangles contacts , i tilted the laptop up on the screen to see the bottom of laptop , then had a friend turn-on laptop, it didnt clear the password the first time so we did it again and it cleared the password , then had it tried to repair itself ,then go to settings change to boot from cd reinstalled my windows 7 operating system disc and i,m back to a working computer! thought i,d share the info !

I took the body apart. Look

I took the body apart. Look for the batter closest to you to the right of the mouse pad, near the edge. Remove the battery and replace it. It allows the computer to boot but you can't get into the bios - still havn't cracked that password yet.

I took the case apart, found

I took the case apart, found the bios battery near the right hand edge with the computer facing you. Look for the service manual before taking it apart.

removing  cmos  battery  and  main  battery  will  not  clear   bios  password  waste  of  time  ,   read  my  early  post  thats  how  i  cleared  bios  password  also  go  to  the  website  i  listed  look-up  your  acer  service  manual  for  the  jumper  location  for  clearing   password  ,   remove  the  hdd &  main  battery   open  large  lower  cover  look  for  two  triangle  copper  leads  near   each other  bottom rt  the  number  69  will  be next  to triangles  open  laptop  lay  on  side  plug-in  power  cord , hold  thin wire  to  triangle  contacts  than  power  up  laptop until  acer  splashes  on  screen  then  shut-off  lap  top  you  may  have  to  repeat  process  acouple  of  times  to  clear  bios  password  ,  then  put  laptop  back  together  it  should  work
