i think storage battery low indicates that the cmos battery is losing its ability to reatin a charge. try replacing it. if that doesn't solve your problem, you have deeper issues. consult a professional if this is the case.
Don,t do that insatead: Entering the BIOS Setup menu
the BIOS Setup menu requires pressing a specific key at a specific
time. If you fail to enter the Setup menu on your first try, repeat the
following steps until you are successful:
Close all applications that are currently running and restart the computer by clicking Start
, Shut Down
, Restart the Computer
, and then OK
When the red Compaq logo or blue HP logo screen appears, press the F10
key on the keyboard to enter the Setup menu.
alternate to the above steps, especially if the logo screen disappears
too quickly to enter BIOS, is to shut down (turn off) the computer. Wait
30 seconds, turn the power on and press F10
at the logo screen.Reloading the default settings
Complete the following steps to reload the factory installed BIOS Setup settings:
In the BIOS Setup utility, select the Exit
Select Load Setup Defaults
Select Save Changes and Exit
and the Enter
key will also load the Setup Defaults).
This is what the Compaq site had to say about the BIOS utility for your system (Source: Compaq):
•You may have difficulty accessing the BIOS Setup utility screen, because you must press a specific key(usually F1) very quickly before the Windows screen appears. If you do not enter the BIOS Setup screen on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful.
To open the BIOS Setup screen: 1. Turn off the PC and wait about 5 seconds. 2. Turn on the PC. 3. When the first screen appears, press the F1 key on the keyboard. (You can press the key more than once.) The BIOS Setup Utility Main menu appears. NOTE: On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup. 4. Use the keyboard to navigate through the menus. You may need to remove the battery and then back in.
You can do this in your BIOS settings. When you reboot the computer, look for a message that states what key on the keyboard to press to enter BIOS settings. Usually DELETE key, F1 or F2 key. Look for advance settings tab in BIOS menu. You will see it under there.
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.
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 :- http://sodoityourself.com/hacking-ibm-thinkpad-bios-password/
just double check the keyboard connection if it's ps2 type connector; if it's a usb mouse it won't work cos the drivers have not loaded.
Only other solution is to remove right side panel of pc and locate the JBAT1 terminal and move jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and back again.
Turn on pc and then hopefully you can access the bios to set the time and date and save settings then re start.
