Question about IBM ThinkPad 600E 2645 Notebook
I have IBM Thinkpad 600e laptop. It is showing error 189 at the POST. I could not instal win98 due to the above error. pls give me a solution
Usually this means a hardware failure. I would suggest reseating the CMOS battery overnight to reset the system. Also you might want to replace it as well. It could also be more serious such as a motherboard component failure.
Also IBM error code # 189 according to Scott Mueller's Upgrading and Repairing PC's (8th edition) - "Excessive incorrect password attempts." Is there a password on your CMOS ?
Also try hitting ESC key on boot to bypass. Good luck!
