Compaq used 301 as kind of a general purpose error for anything wrong with the keyboard. Some possibilities are:

1. Poor connection or keyboard unplugged
2. Bent pins or broken connection in the keyboard plug
2. Stuck key on keyboard
3. Defective or failed keyboard
4. Problem on the motherboard's keyboard input.

Check the connections, feel for any key that might be stuck, or try a different keyboard.

The motherboard has device controllers that read id #'s of your hardware. When a device fails, a fail code is thrown out which is attached to the device id. Sometimes when en error has been cleared the code for that device may not. Try to boot the computer with the mouse removed & a different keyboard. Shut down & install the mouse & original keyboard. Let me know what happens

Error 301 on IBM 600x


HelloThe IBM error 301 POST code means the keyboard is not responding correctly. Folowing may be the reasons:-
  • You could have a stuck key, or the keyboard cable is faulty and not making proper electrical contact.
  • You could have a faulty keyboard controller.
  • You may have a faulty keyboard which may had some fluid spilt on the keys.
  • Try clean and reconnect the keyboard cable.
If this doesn't work try connecting an USB keyboard and see if this keyboard functions correctly.

If none of these work you have a motherboard problem.

Good luck, and do rate the solution if got help

Error display 301


he 301 response from your Web server should always include an alternative URL to which redirection should occur. If it does, a Web browser will immediately retry the alternative URL. So you never actually see a 301 error in a Web browser, unless perhaps you have a corrupt redirection chain e.g. URL A redirects to URL B which in turn redirects back to URL A. If your client is not a Web browser, it should behave in the same way as a Web browser i.e. immediately retry the alternative URL. If the Web server does not return an alternative URL with the 301 response, then either the Web server sofware itself is defective or your Webmaster has not set up the URL redirection correctly.

The IBM error 301 POST code means the keyboard is not responding correctly.
You could have a stuck key, or the keyboard cable is faulty and not making proper electrical contact.
You could have a faulty keyboard controller.
You may have a faulty keyboard which may had some fluid spilt on the keys.
Try clean and reconnect the keyboard cable.
If this doesn't work try connecting an USB keyboard and see if this keyboard functions correctly.
If none of these work you have a motherboard problem. The Thinkpad 600 is a very old laptop and it would not be worth fixing. I suggest putting your money towards a new laptop.

Try a Microsoft/Windows update and look for the hardware update ( select Hardware updates on the left side of the page) to see if there is one for your keyboard. It may fix your problem?

Error Code 07 301


With IBM Thinkpad,it telling you that some hardware is faulty, check your keyboard to make sure nothing is stuck. Also it could also be your trackpoint. Usually, replacing the damaged part gets rid of the error! However there is a bypass key sequence that allows your to continue booting the system even though it gives you error. I'm not 100% sure of what it is but somthing like ESC at boot or F1 or maybe your need the boot to the error page then press ok, then when the system comes up again press f1 or esc then. You'll have to play around with the key sequence a bit. But to get rid of the error forever you need to replace the damaged part! Regards, Armando
