    not sure i understand, are you having a problem with a dim screen, does the system ever boot into windows? When does the screen flash? When you first turn on the laptop or after it trys to boot up into windows?

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.

Bad CRC1, stop POST task. The EEPROM checksum is not correct


This problem you may not be able to fix. There are a couple of things you can try.
1st Keep on rebooting your laptop until this error goes away.
2nd Replace the BIOS battery, it maybe nearly worn out. After replacement you need to go into the BIOS setting to set the Date & Time.

CRC Problem


Chances are since the system CRC1'd it has a very old BIOS revision. From version 1.10 on, the CRC issue has been fixed. So, get the latest BIOS from IBM, T21 BIOS: ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/spsdkz34.exe and flash the BIOS. Reboot the system and verify the updated BIOS. Now power down the system, desolder the known good EEPROM and resolder the CRC1 EEPROM. Boot the machine and hit ESC when the splash screen comes up and watch the post screen. The new BIOS should have recalculated the EEPROM checksum and written the changes to it. You'll know if it worked because the CRC1 error will be gone.

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.
