CMOS Error 0193

Just recived IBM Netvista 2292-21u refubished mother board.
I keep getting "Error 0193 system security - IBM Embedded Security hardware has been removed". then "Error System Halted". Tried everything
This is what I always get pressing F1 or F12 for start up devices or doing nothing

CPU = Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1,60GHz
639K System RAM Passed
254M Extended RAM Passed
256K Cache SRAM Passed
System BIOS shadowed
Video BIOS shadowed Mouse initialized
0193: System Security - IBM Embedded Security hardware has been removed
System Halted
0162: Configuration Error - Default configuration used

After that the system hangs no reaction from keyboard.

    Did not help me as I can't get to the BIOS settings.
    Using PhoenixBIOS 4.0R6.0 for IBM NetVista.
    Hitting F1 for BIOS gives the same screen, no BIOS access.

    I'll see about replacing the battery at some point in fixing this.

The security device plugs into the left front of the MB as viewed from the front. It is approximately 1.5" x 2 inches in size. they sometimes come loose form the socket when a system is moved. Open the case and see if it is there and loose. If completely gone, then you need to contact your MB supplier for either the device, a new board or a factory reprogram of the board to disable the missing device.

I'm doing some research on your behalf and the hits I'm getting what seems to be an item that at some point was attached to the motherboard, that item being a RF antenna, and that know has been removed.

try this:

1. enter BIOS Setup Utility by entering the supervisor password (if one is enable), and select:

  1. Password
  2. Security Chip
  3. Clear Security Chip
  4. exit saving settings
  5. restart
2. try replacing the battery of your motherboard, watch for ESD by grounding yourself by touching the powersupply first before touching any component inside your pc.

3. if 1 or 2 did not work, try to restore your bios to defaults or check on your motherboard what could be missing and if possible disable this item or device then save then exit... if that does not work you may need to replaced the motherboard (sorry)!
