Re: PROBLEM WITH T60 IBM THINKPAD
If your laptop received a password protection and that password was forgotten there is no user manageble way to recover or disable the password. Maybe the person who tampered with it tried to reset the BIOS by removing the battery or things like that. They woun't work as the password is stored in a NAND ROM memory section of the BIOS, meaning that it isn't volatile and can't be erased like PC's BIOS by removing the power and battery. If you can't modify BIOS settings or you can't get rid of the "locked" display image, you need to go to a service center to have the password removed by them. This operation requires BIOS flashing and can't be done by the normal user as it involves specialised hardware. Sorry for I can't assist you further with a easy fix or something like that.

The error means that you have to change the BIOS battery first before trying to change the date and time. As far as i know with IBM's the CMOS (RTC) battery is located under one of the panels underneath the laptop and is usually covered with red, blue or yellow plastic with wires coming from it. Disconnect the battery and replace it
Once the CMOS battery is replaced you can set the date and time and no more error messages.
The error message relates to the date and time setting in the BIOS, it has a wrong due to a flat BIOS battery. The needs to be replaced and the date and time corrected,
The padlock symbol indicates the laptop's BIOS has been set with a password and you cannot enter and change the BIOS settings without this password.
Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, then boot up and enter your BIOS password, then change the time & date, then save and exit.
the following data is from the hardware maintenance manual for the thinkpad 600 series and is readily available from http://www.lenovo.com/support
Symptom or error FRU or action, in sequence 161 Dead battery. 1. Go to “Checking the backup battery” on page 12. 2. Backup battery. 3. System board. 163 Time and date were not set. 1. Set time and date. 2. System board. 173 Configuration data was lost. 1. Select OK in the error screen; then set the time and date. 2. Backup battery. 3. System board. 192 Fan error. 1. Go to “Testing the computer” on page 7. 2. Measure the voltage of the backup battery. If the voltage is not correct, replace the backup battery. 3. Fan. 4. System board.
Are you a computer whizz? (do you know a lot about computers like me?)
Could be the Cpu fan (Central Processing Unit)
That could be lethal to the laptop.
Just as well it's a IBM other wise . . .
As for the error it means the time and date are not set.
soloution: run the bios setup utillity to reset time and date.
