There is a backup battery underneath the main battery and the age of the T23s means these need to be replaced (after 6 - 7 years!). You can pick one up on eBay for $10 or less w/shipping and you will need the exact part as they use a propietary connector. If you do the replacement yourself have patience, IBM made the plug very difficult to line up - but it will eventually. If you try to force it you can breack the motherboard connector off and require a costly tech repair.

Lock ibm bios 0271 error


You need a replacement battery for the CMOS system on your computer.

The CMOS system contains the BIOS settings configuration and also runs the real time clock. If the real time clock does not stay in sync, this can have a negative affect on your installed operating system ( for example, a windows computer will not allow ANY system updates if the difference between your system time date, and the update servers current time and date is offset for 24 hrs. or more)

Hi Dalibor
Error 0271 refers to the cmos battery being weak.

I have 0271 error can get into bios but not able to change the date and time??


Hi,

The error means that you have to change the BIOS battery first before trying to change the date and time.
As far as i know with IBM's the CMOS (RTC) battery is located under one of the panels underneath the laptop and is usually covered with red, blue or yellow plastic with wires coming from it. Disconnect the battery and replace it

Once the CMOS battery is replaced you can set the date and time and no more error messages.


Regards.

TIME DATE LOCK 0271


This IBM 0271 error code means the Date and Time setting in the BIOS is incorrect and needs to be reset in the BIOS configuration.
This is caused by a dead or nearly flat BIOS battery.
You need to replace the BIOS battery and reset the Date and Time.

Bios lock, ERROR CODE 0271


Hi,
Error code 0271 - Date and time error. Neither the date nor the time is set in the computer.
Run BIOS Setup Utility to reset the time and date
It sounds as though your computer has the wrong time in the CMOS. The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductors) is the chip that holds the basic startup information for the BIOS, system and its peripherals while the system is turned on and off.

If you can get into the BIOS check the date and time settings and make sure they are correct.

It may also be a case of the CMOS battery going out. When this happens your computer will tend to not keep the correct time. They are cheap and relatively easy to replace. Before buying a new batter your can try to take it out and let it sit for about 10 minutes or so to reset the CMOS and then go put the battery back in and go into the BIOS and reset the clock.

Hopefully taking the batter out or replacing it will get past your lock icon asking for the password. Just search for CMOS or BIOS default password for your brand of laptop.

ERROR 0271


Are you a computer whizz? (do you know a lot about computers like me?)

Could be the Cpu fan (Central Processing Unit)
That could be lethal to the laptop.
Just as well it's a IBM other wise . . .
As for the error it means the time and date are not set.
soloution: run the bios setup utillity to reset time and date.
