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.

Im trying to open the boot menu in the toshiba 2140cds but when i see the toshiba icon and press boot menu the computer does nothing:P please help


I think pressing "F10" or "F12" should show the boot menu on boot up but if this fails the you will have to go into the setup (bios) and set it there (could be the "DEL" key or "F2" for setup).

Check the laptop is booting by connecting it to an external monitor and see if the lock appears there you may need to press Fn and F7 keys to switch display

If it does not, then try pressing Fn and scroll lock

What is the problem when uyou switch on the IBM


You probably need to replace the BIOS battery. This battery is small and on the inside of the laptop connected to the motherboard. It stores the BIOS settings, date and time. If this battery becomes worn out then it will cause your issue. First try and press F1. Navigate to the last tab and select to restore defaults, then save and exit. If the computer boots up fine but the next time you use it the same message appears then you need a new BIOS battery. Alternatively your HDD may be damaged if it cannot find a boot device. Check your HDD is recognised on the boot menu by pressing F12, select it and press enter and your OS should boot. Hope this helps,

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.

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.
