0176 error meaning the system cover had been opened. To fix this error, you need to enter CMOS setting or BIOS setting. press F10 to save before exit. Then the error will be gone.

Did you ever open the system cover before this error happened?

I have a iBM t40 2373 Thinkpad when i turn it on i get 2 codes one is 0176 and the other is 0271


The first code is a tamper alarm indicating that the case has been opened and the second code is complaining about the time and date settings. It may just be that the cmos battery is dead and needs replacing because you will also get a tamper warning if the system thinks the battery has been disconnected. A lithium ion battery is good for about 10 years and this computer came out in 2003. Reboot, go into the setup for the bios, set the correct time and date. If this doesn't do it, you need to replace the battery and then configure date/time.

Error 0176 ibm


Lots of issues with 0176 error. Could be caused by a dead cmos battery or the system thinks it has been tampered with. I found a couple of clues for you;

The T41 Hardware Maintenance Manual gives the following instructions in case of error 0176:
"Run BIOS setup utility, and save the current settings by pressing F10."
To get into BIOS, you need to press the F1 key when you see the splash screen. I suppost that the splash screen on a T41 will display a ThinkPad or IBM logo, and something similar to "to interrupt normal start procedure, press the blue thinkvantage button".
The idea that a new motherboard might be necessary comes from the T41 Hardware Maintenance Manual. It says that in case the first instruction, i.e. get into BIOS and save current settings, doesn't fix the problem, a new motherboard should be installed.
You could try the following:
Disconnect the AC adapter from the notebook, disconnect all other cables. Remove the battery pack. Press the power button ten times in one-second intervals. Then press the power button again, and hold it pressed down for 30 seconds. Then install the battery pack again, connect the AC adapter. Press the power button.
Re: 0176 Security - The system has been tampered with
The padlock came up after removing the BIOS-battery. It is a security-feature and cannot be bypassed.
Removing the BIOS battery does not remove the supervisor-password but locks the system, if one hat been set to protect the computer from illegal use.
So either try to get the SVP from the previous owner ore replace the board.
