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.

Good luck.

I have two PCs, one is branded by DELL Vostro 320 - all in one and another one is Assembled. My branded PC starts very quickly. On the other hand my assembled PC takes too much time. Why?


There are many possible reasons for this. First, a branded machine is specifically tailored by the manufacturer for peak performance - they contract with the motherboard manufacturers and have customs boards made with chipsets tailored to the processor(s) they intend to install in the series. Likewise, the BIOS is also specifically tailored for their purposes. Lastly, they can also arrange for special loads of Windows to bypass or speed up functions they do or don't use. Assembled machines use motherboards manufactured for a wider range of processors - this gives the builder flexibility and also allows a wider range of upgrades and expansions over a branded machine. The downside is that in order to achieve wider compatibility, extra code is often used in the chipsets and BIOS and this can slow down startup. Its a trade-off of starting speed versus long-term upgradability and choice of peripherals.
That said, there are a few things you CAN do to speed up you assembled machine. In the BIOS for most of these motherboards, you can choose NOT to show the manufacturer's logo on startup. You can also enable "fast-boot" or "quickboot", which bypasses the memory test and most of the POST checks. Lastly, you can usually adjust the time that the machine hesitates at bootup looking for the BIOS or BOOT MENU function keys. All of this can cut the startup time considerably. But seriously, as someone who has run the gamut of machines from my original IBM XT that ran a 20 MEGABYTE hard drive, has 640 KILOBYTES of RAM, and ran at a blistering 4.77 MEGAHERTZ (no - not GIGA), even I must admit that I sometimes get a bit jaded about performance issues. But then I try to put it in perspective and realize that if I had to do what I am trying to do WITHOUT a PC, the 25-35 seconds would probably be the amount of time I'd spend making up my mind that I really didn't need to do whatever it was in the first place.. (GRIN). Hope this helps!

IBM IntelliStation zPro came with different CPU chips through 1997 to 2006. Depending on which year or type your machine is will determine if you can upgrade to Windows8.

The chips used were

IntelliStation Z Pro

Type 6899 (March 1997 to ??)

Type 6865 (October 1998 to April 2000)
Type 6866 (January 2000 to March 2002)
Type 6894 (May 2001 to June 2002)
Type 6221 (November 2002 to February 2005)
  • Dual Intel Xeon at 2.4, 2.67, 2.8 or 3.2 GHz
Type 6223 (August 2004 to March 2007)
  • Dual Intel Xeon with Intel 64 (formerly EM64T) at 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, 3.6 or 3.8 GHz
Type 9228 (June 2006)
  • Dual Intel Xeon Model 5130, 5140, 5150 or 5160
Windows 8 If you want to run Windows 8 on your PC, here's what it takes:
  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2 (more info)
  • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
  • Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
As you have Type 6223 which a Xeon faster than 1GHz it should work with Windows 8 but not all Xeon processors are compatible depending on which one you have. See this Microsoft site after you check your Xeon chip family on the motherboard or through the Windows system command. Search for xeon.

Can you install windows xp on a ibm 380ed laptop


Hi there,
You need to make sure your laptop meet the minimum hardware requirements for windows XP . (see below)
I believe your system has a Pentium MMX 166 MHZ processor which will not be able to run XP properly.
But that's not all, You also need to make sure IBM Lenovo provides drivers for all the hardware on your 380ED, which I don't believe it does.

Minimum hardware requirements

  • Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
  • At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
  • At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
  • CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
  • Keyboard and a Microsoft Mouse or some other compatible pointing device
  • Video adapter and monitor with Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution
  • Sound card
  • Speakers or headphones

I have an old Compaq Armada 1592DMT laptop with Windows 98 and Pentium MMX. Does it have the capability to go wireless with a Netgear wireless adapter?


The short answer is yes. Just make sure you have the windows 98 drivers for the WiFi adapter you are using.

Now the long answer... well at least what you probably do not want to hear.

This baby has a maximum of 96MB of memory with a 233MHz processor (**** slow)... if you do not have the maximum memory, I would guess the performance will be painful.

Standard Memory
Maximum Memory
Memory Expansion
CPU Type
Model/Chipset
16 or 32 MB (non-removable)
80 or 96 MB
1 socket
233MHz Intel Pentium w/MMX

Intel Pentium II Processor Upgrade


No, this highest the P-II went to was either 400 or 450 Mhz. Upgrading a thinkpad CPU may be difficult. Considering prices on used laptops now, I wouldn't think it would be worthwhile, either.
