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.

I have 0271 error can get into bios but not able to change the date and time??


Hi,

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.


Regards.

Replace the backup battery and run BIOS Setup Utility to reset the time and date. This will resolve the issue.

What is error 00173, 00192, and 00163


Hi,
Error 192 means a fan error, to test this measure the voltage of the backup battery. If the
voltage is not correct, replace the backup battery. Check the fan and the system board.

Error 163 means the time and date is not set, to set the time and date hit F1 when you see the IBM logo and set the time and date.

Error 173 means the configuration data is lost, to sort that select OK in the error screen and set the time and date.

In most case its the CMOS battery that's run low and need to be changed for a new one, so for the time being you will have to keep setting the time and date and it will boot to windows.


Good luck

My IBM Thinkpad is not switching on?


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.

ERROR 0271


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.
