Question about PC Laptops
I suspect your machine is an IBM Thinkpad 770.
The Error 0270 means you must replace the lithium coin cell battery. Google "Thinkpad (your model) support" and read the manuals for instructions.
With a new battery installed, boot into Setup by pressing the F! key. Reset the clock and verify that the hard drive is recognised.
Reboot, all might be OK. If not, download and run IBM's free PC-Doctor utility to test the machine. If all is OK, I suspect the hard drive was stripped and an operating system must be installed. Verify this with a DOS boot floppy. Run FDISK to view your partitions.
