Question about IBM ThinkPad 380ED
I read the possible soluitons about holding down the F1 key the then restar and I even hold read the possible soluitons about holding down the F1 key the then restar and I even hold it down fro another minute after the error appears. Boot disk does not work...is there a solution. I tried both with the bdead battery in and out...any thoughts?
These error codes mean that the CMOS battery is dead, and also that the time and date needs to be set. Replace battery by opening RAM chip cover on bottom of unit. Gently pry battery out of it's black plastic holder from the bottom using a small flat blade screwdriver. Get a CP1220 CMOS battery from Batteries Plus or Radio Shack (less than $4.00) and gentlly pop it back in. Restart the computer and hit "enter" when the error codes come up. Set the time and date and you should be OK after that.
NOTE: DO NOT TRY TO PRY OUT THE BLACK HOLDER ITSELF OR YOU WILL RUIN IT!!

Are you trying to access the Bios set up? I own the IBM ThinkPad 380Z, 13" full Screen, 233MHz Pentium II model. If you power on the machine and just hold down the Q button it will then take you to easy set up. If you have Windows on it just wait to the IBM logo screen clears and press and hold F8 and that will bring you to Windows setup.
