HOW TO SOLVE ERROR 08611 ON IBM THINKPAD TYPE 2645


If you downloaded IBM 600 repair manual, 8611 error is fixed by reseating the keyboard connector on the system board. Which means you have to unscrew 13 bottom screws to take out the keyboard.

I got these error messages: 301 and 8611. What does these mean and what I can do about it?


IBM errors 3xx are usually the keyboard problem. 86xx are usually mouse/pad/etc problem. Check for cable connection.

Getting message 8611 failing to start


The 8611 error is telling you that the trackpoint or keyboard for the Thinkpad has stopped working

You can sometimes get the 8611 error:
  • If an emergency power down is made by switching the system off during or while an application is open, then immediately switching the system on creates a 8611 error.
  • Repeatedly turning power off and back on without properly shutting down or allowing the system to shut itself down.
The Solution:
  • Wait at least 6 seconds or longer after shutting down the system or before restarting to correct the 8611 error
If the above doesn't work you will have to disable the Track Point:
I did the following procedure from information I found on the Internet, and it worked, only you will need to use a mouse with the laptop from that point on, you are basically turning off the trackpoint which is causing the error.
There is no guarantee this will work because it may also be the keyboard itself, so do at your own risk.
First go into the system config utility which you get forced into after the 8611 error is reported
Then go back to the main menu and enter the config.
When there press the control key and the d key at the same time..
Find and ensure you are on the -base 128 cmos- page.
Look for ofset 20h, (maybe a different number ##h) and in the1st column and 3rd row and change the number to 01. On my Thinkpad the ofset was not 20h but 12h., so my ofset number wasn't the same but it is still 1st column, 3rd row.
When finished changing the number to 01 press the F2 key and then the F3 key.
Then exit out and restart the computer.
The computer should reboot with the trackpoint disabled. And you will need to use a mouse with the Thinkpad.

IRe: IBM 600E


Hi, sorry I was out last night.
Errors 00161/00163/00173 mean you need to replace the CMOS/BIOS battery and update the time, date etc, like you did.. and Error 00301 means a keyboard error. Just press CtrlAltDel past this.. or try using an external PS-2 keyboard..

So, when you startup and then get to the errors, just press CtrlAltDel to restart, then tap F1 to enter the Advanced Settings and try to load Windows in Safe Mode, and let it do a Scan Disk.

It's possible that the machine won't be able to load any hardware drivers for the machine because the CMOS information might have been corrupted due to the flat battery, but try and boot into Safe Mode anyway and see how you get on.

This is a really old machine but still has driver and troubleshooting support at the Lenovo website, and it might be fun and interesting to resurrect..

Hardware Maintance Manual - June 1999: ThinkPad 600, 600E
On pages 109 and 115of the attached pdf file (actual pages 103 and 109), the Li-Ion batterypack part number should read 12P4064 replaces 02K7018.
c.gif Battery test utility diskette - ThinkPad 600/E/X

BIOS Update (Diskette) - ThinkPad 600
PCMCIA SelectaDock I/II driver for Windows 95/98 - ThinkPad 600, 770

c.gif Windows 98 installation supplement files - ThinkPad 600, 760, 765, 770
This is the Setup Guide for the thinkpad 600.

Of course, it may very well load Windows fine after a new battery and a scandisk and you'll find it has Windows 2000 on it, so maybe I'm jumping the gun with the Win98 stuff there, but let me kow how you get on..

Oh by the way, if we are going to be using a different Solution thread this time, can you go back to the other page and rate it as Fixya! so that they can take it off the system? It saves the unrated pages filling up the servers..

Ibm thinkpad 600e


artscot79,
And, a good evening to you!

This is what IBM has to say about that error:

861x
(Pointing device error when
TrackPoint is enabled.)
8611: System bus error-I/F between 8042 and IPDC.

And, this is what they say can cause the problem:
1. Reseat the keyboard cable on the sub card.
2. Keyboard
3. External mouse
4. Sub card
5. System board

I'm not sure, from what you told us, that this is your only problem. However, I'd suggest resolving this issue before going on to others.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating. If this information has answered your question and/or lead to a resolution, please rate it as "Fixya!".
Thank you, and have a super day!

ibm thinkpad does not boot My IBM Thinkpad 600 (Type 2645-310) stops and hang during bootup. What happens is: 1. LED test, then green Power on and orange battery/charging 3. RAM OK (Responds when I take out /put in different amount of RAM and displays correctly. I have 128 + 32 removable, + 32 internal not possible to take out) 2. I can hear fan, CD drive and evt diskette drive. If I use diskette drive the LED wil give 1 blink, if I use CD drive it will give 14 blink. 3. No cursor seen, but this is displayed: Upper left show the amount of RAM present: 196032 KB OK Upper right IBMs logo in blue; IBM Lower left shows "ThinkPad(R)" in large letters and red dot over "i". 4. Then a "rrrrrr" sound from the loudspeakers after a while, this is in fact 28 clicks shortly after each other. Then nothing more happens. Diskette and CD drive is OK (But can not be used because bootup is never finished). I hear CD speed up and then down again but nothing more happens. No effect in booting with bootable diskette or CD, "Live Linux" CD or else. Backup battery OK (3V) and if I take it out I will be asked for correct date and time when Power on. I can then use keyboard or TrackPoint to set date and time, and after that hangup at the usual point. Starting without battery, HDD, CD drive and removable memory sticks makes no difference in symptoms. Pressing and holding F1 before and during poweron and startup (in order to enter BIOS and selftest) has no effect. I could not find help on IBMs home page, but maybe I did not look at the right place. Is somebody able to help me?
