GOOD MORNING SIR / MAAAM.. MY IBM THINKPAD R50E HAS AN ERROR ON THE SCREEN ..."ERROR 0271 CHECK DATE AND TIME SETTINGS'.. HOW DO I CLEAR THE CMOS FOR THIS ERROR? HOW DO FIND THE PASSWORD PADS ON THE...


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 battery you 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 battery out or replacing it will get past your lock icon asking for the password. If not then you may have to find out the manufacturer of your computer's motherboard to see if there is a common password to get past the lockout. Since it's a laptop then it should be easier to find this code based on the manufacturer.

Removing CMOS battery on ibm r50e is not solving the pass problem


Removing battery or resetting BIOS with jumper will not help. You should call IBM for support on this issue. All thinkpads have a three year warranty, with either return to base or on-site service. Since the R50e is a recent model, you should have no problem getting it serviced directly by IBM. Toll Free: 1-800-IBM-SERV (1-800-426-7378)

I CANNOT BOOT MY IBM THINKPAD 2367..HELP


Both errors are related to the backup battery which is located under the main battery. It is probably dead. You can get one on eBay for $3.29 w/free shipping or pay a shop $20 to put one in. If you do it yourself be very gentle plugging it into the tricky little slot - it is possible to break the connector loose from the motherboard but it is an easy repair if you have patience and dexterity. As for the password, try just hitting enter. It is the supervisor password to change the BIOS settings and was probably never set.
Hope this helps.

My IBM Thinkpad is not switching on?


The error message relates to the date and time setting in the BIOS, it has a wrong due to a flat BIOS battery. The needs to be replaced and the date and time corrected,
The padlock symbol indicates the laptop's BIOS has been set with a password and you cannot enter and change the BIOS settings without this password.

Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, then boot up and enter your BIOS password, then change the time & date, then save and exit.

Ibm thinkpad help fast


Next time the computer gives you a stop error, write down all the information it says about the error (even if it is a bunch of crazy numbers or letters). Go online and search the internet with the words Stop error and the information you wrote down. Or with the words Blue Screen Of Death and the information you wrote down. You should be provided with information about the stop error that explains what the problem is. Or post the stop error along with your question on this website and we can try to help you find the solution to your problem.
