Sounds like you tried this, but it's worth a shot again. Remove the CMOS battery on the motherboard and let the laptop sit for an hour, then replace the battery with a new one.
If the only real issue is changing the time and date, you can do this in Windows and it will reset the BIOS clock, too, of course.
If the problem is that the time and date keep reseting, you either have a low CMOS battery or a short on the motherboard that is resetting it.
If all else fails, you might need to flash the BIOS from a floppy disk with the latest BIOS version for your machine to reset it and go from there.
PS: BIOS reset problems on laptops are sometimes due to power problems caused by battery packs going bad; check your battery pack, too, and see if it is working okay.

If it's not a hardware problem, then you can salvage this computer by installing Linux on it. Mandriva 2009.0 works fine
on a T42 Thinkpad, and it's not that difficult a transition from Windows.

Both errors are related to the backup battery which is located under
the main battery. It is probably dead. You can get one on
eBay for $3.29 w/free shipping or pay a shop $20 to put one
in. If you do it yourself be very gentle plugging it into the
tricky little slot - it is possible to break the connector loose from
the motherboard but it is an easy repair if you have patience and
dexterity. As for the password, try just hitting enter. It
is the supervisor password to change the BIOS settings and was probably
Hope this helps.

go to the bios and set the time and date there. you also may need to load the default settings to reset the bios to remove any bios passwords. if that does not work remove the bios battery or move the bios jumper for one minute. to reset it write down all bios settings befor you do it.
