How to change to a different date in advanced booting options


To change your system date through Advanced Booting options, you first need to enter BIOS setup menu of your system. To enter BIOS setup menu and to change your system date, you can follow the instructions below:
1.Boot your system and enter BIOS setup menu using the designated key. Though the key to enter BIOS may vary depending upon the computer manufacturer, usually keys like Delete, F12, F10, and F2 are designated to enable a user to enter BIOS setup. To know how to identify the key your system is designated to enter BIOS setup, you can refer to the image under "Method 1 of 3: Enter the BIOS" section on the following webpage:
Important: Following link is of a third-party website. We recommend you to update your security software thoroughly before clicking on the link.
http://www.wikihow.com/Change-Computer-BIOS-Settings

2.As soon as you identify the BIOS setup key, strike it rapidly and repeatedly (while the booting is on) till the time you enter BIOS setup menu. You may get just a few seconds to do this. If you are not able to enter BIOS setup menu by pressing the key repeatedly, reboot your system and follow the same steps again to enter BIOS setup menu.
Note: BIOS menu do not support mouse input. Hence, you will have to navigate through the menu using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
3.Once you enter BIOS setup menu, you can change the date of your system by going to "System Date" option. This option is generally located in the "Main" section of the menu.
Important: The layout of BIOS menu varies from manufacturer to manufacturer but most of them share a few common settings. If you are not able to detect "System Date" option in the "Main" section of the menu, you may need to look into other sections to locate the option.
To get a pictorial explanation of the above steps, you can refer to the following link:

Hope this will resolve your issue.

Bios rom checksum error, boot block bios vI.0


Error BIOS ROM CHECKSUM - SYSTEM HALTED.
Cause Bad Hardware
Solution Unfortunately this indicates that your computer BIOS ROM chip or Motherboard is physically bad. It is recommended that you contact your computer manufacturer or take the computer into local service center for repair.
If you wish to repair this issue yourself the motherbard will need to be replaced.
This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.

The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is probably faulty. It could also be another component on the motherboard.

You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values hopefully against a recent


If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.
If you don't know the settings the should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date.
Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work.

This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.


During the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
You will also need to set the time and date

In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date. Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.
hope this helps you

Bios rom checksum error


The CMOS setup has gotten corrupted. This may have happened if the 3 Volt coin battery on the motherboard is low. If your date and time is wrong, that is a clue the battery needs to be replaced.

If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage on the coin battery. It should be 3V. If it's much less that that, it must be replaced.

Whether or not the battery is bad, you will still have to enter SETUP when you boot the computer after replacing the battery. At boot, it usually displays what key to press to enter setup (DELETE, F2, etc. )

There are several menu screens which you must ensure are correct, according to the hardware installed on your computer.

If this is too daunting, take it to a computer repair place, and they can do it for you.

Good luck!

Please run setup invalid configuration information


If this error message comes up when you boot up the computer, it means the BIOS requires configuration, usually the Time and Date is wrong.
If this occurs every time you boot up your computer and have changed the Date and Time then this could be caused by a flat BIOS battery.
If so, replace the BIOS battery and then configure the Date and Time and you won't get this error again.

Entering BIOS settings, Easy-Access, after POP, with external KB


The Power On Password problem is near impossible to crack. It is designed to prevent unauthorized access to the Thinkpad and removing the BIOS battery will not remove the password because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.
There are no backdoor passwords available, the only option is to ask the person who set the password.
OR
There is a way to hack into the Thinkpad to see and remove the password but it requires electronic skills, a program and a working computer.
For details on how to do this go to :-
