Question about IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook
You will need to reset the BIOS in this computer.
When you remove the battery from the back of the computer you should see a little yellow disc about the size of a nickel. It is thje BIOS battery and it is in a plastic frame that is held in the computer with 1 screw in the corner. You need to remove the screw and then lift the free side of the battery holder and slide it towards the center of the battery box. This will unplug the wire that runs from the battery into the computer. Leave it out for about 1 minute and then slide it back into position, allowing it to plug the wire back into its socket.
Then put the screw back in and insert the mail battery back into its compartment.
Now when you turn it on it will pop up a message telling you the clock is wrong. reset it to the right time and follow the prompts to reset the BIOS. Make sure that you have the boot sequence set to boot from the CDROM ahead of the Hard drive, or you won't be able to load the OS disc.
I just put a new hard drive in one of these last week and it gave me a bit of a start when it wouldn't start right up.
This fixxed it right up though.
