    Please explain exactly what the problem is. Do you get a message saying "press F1 to continue"?

    What is the motherboard model?

F1 for IBM is telling you there is no operating system.
press F1 to install.
change the internal battery, you may need to rest the BIOS, generally it will find all the devices.

Just guessing, but I'd system your CMOS battery needs to be replaced. Open the computer side panel and search the motherboard for a small, round silver batter about the size of a nickel. Use your fingernails to push the silver click to one side and take out the battery. Buy a new one from Wal-Mart and put it in with the smooth side up then re-enter the CMOS setup information and the problem should be solved.

Look for the boot order options in the setup or pay attention at the actual startup of the laptop when the IBM logo is being displayed. You will notice a message on the screen indicating which button to press to select the "boot order" or "boot options". Press the button (ussually one of the F1 - F12 keys) and you will be presented with a choice of which device to use to boot from.

IBM computers use the F1 key. It is critical that the keystroke is captured at the right moment in the boot sequence. Otherwise it is ignored. Start tapping the key repeatedly as soon as you turn the system on. Shortly after the memory check and mouse initialization is complete, you should get a BIOS setup menu. If you're still having problems, you might try a different keyboard since it is always possible to have a defect there.

CMOS BATTERY


It really depends on the Driver model.

On the latest models capicitors of BIOS can hold the charge for longer and you can easily change the battery with the new one.

If you have the old board just go ahead and change the battery as usual and dont worry for the settings at all.

You can load the safest default settings by pressings F1,F9,F10
