174 error message on thinkpad 380

I left my laptop off for more than one year ,now when i try to boot i get the error message 00174

My laptop think pad 380 gives me this error 174, it will let me do the system check but when I restart it it gives me the same error code. I tried holding f1 down before starting but that didn't help at all. Any suggestions?

    Haven't used the laptop in a while, started it up, at first was having a prob with the 3v battery. replaced that. still getting error 00174 message. tried the good old F1 trick but no luck. Appreciate any feedback or ideas on how to fix it, if possible.

    It was the hard drive for me too. I just replaced the HD and my Thinkpad booted normally, without any error.

I have the same problem!!!!

Try this:
Start with the machine OFF, hold down and CONTINUE TO HOLD the "F1" key and turn on the power WHILE STILL HOLDING DOWN "F1"
This should get you into the bios/setup, which on most thinkpads is pretty simple and self explanatory. You can reset the date, and something called "initialize" as I remember.
POST YOUR MODEL NUMBER!!!!
Ibm.com's support is famous for having very good, extensive support for thinkpads. I searched for this error no. but we really need the model number

There are many error messages that appear on your screen that make your heart flip, but I suppose the one that is certain to bring you out in a cold sweat is when you boot up your pc and a message appears saying Operating System Not Found!
You have good reason to get into a cold sweat with this error message because, nine times out of ten, there is a serious problem and that problem can be one of many, such as:
-The BIOS hasn't detected the hard drive
-You have an incorrect Master Boot Record
-The hard drive itself is damaged

Do a search for memtest86.iso. Burn this image to a cd and reboot your computer. When your computer reboots it should begin checking your memory for errors. If you still have problems it might be your hard drive.

Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.

Error 00174 is a configuration related indicating the bios/cmos settings are incorrect. This usually occurs when the cmos battery is in need of replacement.
