I received an IBM laptop with same issue a few months back. The error message due to the drained out CMOS RTC (coin-cell battery), which retains and other BIOS settings.
The system is OK and all you have to do is to get the CMOS/RTC battery replaced by the a professional.

Sounds like it could be a problem with the hard drive itself.
First thing you should try is booting the laptop with the hard drive removed.
Let me know what happens, you will get an error message (related to the hard drive of course not being installed)
