Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet
What should i do to get it working again?
Put the battery back in as a removed CMOS battery can actually keep the system from booting.

this is as if you haven't got an installed operating system and requires it to be installed, but you have to enable your cdrom as the first boot device. Put your O.S disc in and reboot; then press enter to boot up from disc.

I believe this is the manual associated with this Advent laptop. Select "disassembly instructions". Item is a viewable PDF document.

Removing battery or resetting BIOS with jumper will not help. You should call IBM for support on this issue. All thinkpads have a three year warranty, with either return to base or on-site service. Since the R50e is a recent model, you should have no problem getting it serviced directly by IBM. Toll Free: 1-800-IBM-SERV (1-800-426-7378)

1) You can reset BIOS to default settings by pressing <Alt><F>
2) I am not sure about the laptops, but in the Dell Desktops usually there is a reset jumper on the motherboard which is seated on 2pins out of 3, you just need to remove that jumper turn on the pc once and the turn on the pc again by reseating the jumper to its original place. You can try this with your laptop, I guess the jumper should be somewhere close to the CMOS battery.
3) Remove the battery and keep it away for atleast 30 mins. and replace it again.
NOTE: make sure while following step (3) and (4) the system should be completely turned off. Unplug the AC adapter, remove the battery and hold the power button for atleast 8 - 10 seconds.
let me know the output

Yes of course all Laptop and Desktop have CMOS battery. Screw the back cover of your laptop locate the CMOS battery and remove to clear the BIOS password. Or else you can reset the CMOS by removing the jamper.

you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log
in if you cant log in
the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press
a certain key to enter set up press and
hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user
password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from
most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to
physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug
and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another
way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2
methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the
BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the
battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps
