This problem occurs when the internal battery dies and you loose data for the internal clock and possibly the bios. Refer to this link: http://22.214.171.124/support/Download/files_downloads/PSA60C/SA60EXUM.PDF and go to page 125 in the manual.

Here is what the manual says:
"The RTC battery may have become completely discharged while your computer was shipped, resulting in the followingerror message during startup:
BAD RTC BATTERY
BAD CHECKSUM (CMOS)
To recharge the RTC battery, connect the computer and leave it powered on for 24 hours."
I have the same problem and have just started the 24 hour charge, so I don't know if it will fix mine. Just remember that you have to have it powered on those 24 hours to charge the RTC battery.

Tips for a great answer:
Insert the Toshiba A60 recovery disc into the CD/DVD-ROM drive.
Power off the Toshiba (with the recovery disc still loaded inside the optical drive).
Release the "F12" key when the" In Touch with Tomorrow TOSHIBA" screen is displayed. This will open up the BIOS.
Change the boot order by using the arrow keys to select "CD/DVD ROM" icon in the menu. The Toshiba will now boot from the recovery disc and restore the system. Follow any additional on-screen instructions.
