Error code 0176 concerned with System Security. The system has been tampered with.

Try to enter the bios setup. Save the bios setting and exit. Lets see if it resolves your problem

Error 0176 ibm


Lots of issues with 0176 error. Could be caused by a dead cmos battery or the system thinks it has been tampered with. I found a couple of clues for you;

The T41 Hardware Maintenance Manual gives the following instructions in case of error 0176:
"Run BIOS setup utility, and save the current settings by pressing F10."
To get into BIOS, you need to press the F1 key when you see the splash screen. I suppost that the splash screen on a T41 will display a ThinkPad or IBM logo, and something similar to "to interrupt normal start procedure, press the blue thinkvantage button".
The idea that a new motherboard might be necessary comes from the T41 Hardware Maintenance Manual. It says that in case the first instruction, i.e. get into BIOS and save current settings, doesn't fix the problem, a new motherboard should be installed.
You could try the following:
Disconnect the AC adapter from the notebook, disconnect all other cables. Remove the battery pack. Press the power button ten times in one-second intervals. Then press the power button again, and hold it pressed down for 30 seconds. Then install the battery pack again, connect the AC adapter. Press the power button.
Re: 0176 Security - The system has been tampered with
The padlock came up after removing the BIOS-battery. It is a security-feature and cannot be bypassed.
Removing the BIOS battery does not remove the supervisor-password but locks the system, if one hat been set to protect the computer from illegal use.
So either try to get the SVP from the previous owner ore replace the board.

Says sytem been tampered with code 0176


0176 error meaning the system cover had been opened. To fix this error, you need to enter CMOS setting or BIOS setting. press F10 to save before exit. Then the error will be gone.

Did you ever open the system cover before this error happened?

Error no 0176


Change the bios battery.Remove the notebook battery and then you should see the bios battery.Maybe you should have to disassembly the complete pc because it is a little dificult without disassembly.

IBM T21


i have the same problem. actually its a common problem for many T21 and other old IBM laptops.
i searched that you have to take all power (batery, adaptor)
press the power 10 times and press it for 30 secs then reinsert the battery or adaptor and try to power it on.
they say its done to discharge a certain capacitor that got overcharged after overcharging the battery.
that worked for me before but now my T21 wont start any more with this process.
