This error seems to represent motherboard problems and most likely requires new motherboard. Unfortunately most laptops that are a few years old arent worth fixing, unless you can do it yourself. Try to find a used model same as yours for parts.
Good luck!

Error 0175: Bad CRC1, stop post task


Hi,

ERROR
0175: BAD CRC1, STOP POST TASK.

Firstly, this error is generated due to a couple of different reasons. First, there may actually be a problem with the power circuitry and the CRC function is actually doing it's job reporting the error. There are several tests you can perform to tell if this is the case with your system.

Secondly, this bad CRC error can be generated by sudden power loss to the system, especially if the system loses power during boot up or POST process. Both mean that there could be a problem with the motherboard and it needs replacing.

Try the steps below to determine what is wrong.

1) Start the system and watch the status lights in the LCD hinge or near the power button. They should flash once (some models twice) before the system shows a display. If they flash 3 times or more, you have a power problem.

2) Start the system and allow it to reach the CRC "stop post task" error message. Let it sit at this error for several hours. The system should sit at this error for ever or until user intervention occurs.

3) Some things to watch for while the system is sitting at the CRC error and running for several hours would be: Screen going black, System rebooting, System powering off, ect.. ect.. ANY activity by the system is a warning that power problems exist in the system.

4) Try restarting the system several times consecutively, shut the system down by holding the power button for 5 seconds, then restart keeping an eye on the status lights for any additional flickers.
All the above tests should be done with AC power applied and battery installed. Also ALL drives installed.



Regards.

ERROR 0175: Bad CRC1, stop POST task message Been using my IBM a30 laptop for some months but was surprised to get this error when i tried putting it on this message pops up ERROR 0175:BAD CRC1 STOP POST...


You obviously didn't read the problem carefully. The machine won't boot, so there is no command line. I have the same problem with a T23. It might be the CMOS battery that needs to be replaced.

Ibm notbook. how will i solve "bad crc1, stop post task. with an error code 0175?


The POST error code 0175 refers to a CRC (cyclic redundancy check) reading from the EEPROM chip, that data is corrupted, most likely a faulty EEPROM chip. This is a motherboard problem and cannot be fixed except by a motherboard replacement. This is an old laptop and would not be worth fixing, I suggest you put your money towards a new laptop.
You can remove the hard drive and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

You could have a faulty BIOS chip or the BIOS battery is nearly flat and giving you this POST error. Replace the BIOS battery with a new one and configure the BIOS settings eg. the Date & Time etc.

IBM Laptop A22e Display an error 0175


The CRC error (POST = power on startup test) on boot up refers to the BIOS settings. This could be cause by a near flat BIOS battery and it needs to be replaces. If it is not the battery you need go to the BIOS to correct any faulty settings.

ThinkPad T22 will not boot to windows


I've seen several T20 series with the same problem. A CRC error pertains to a chipset on the motherboard, and the only way I've found to fix a CRC error is to replace the motherboard.
