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.

You may not have the driver installed. I suggest that you visit Lenovo (click on Lenovo) follow the instructions and you will be good to go.
Good luck

My volume is also not loud enough. Attaching headphones gives you plenty of volume for personal use. But if you are using it in a class or meeting, attach a speaker.

You can go the hardware (device) management and unload the drivers or uninstall the device. You may also have a switch on the sides of your laptop.

You can reset forgotten Windows password with 3 methods below:

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.

2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).

3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Reset

Which Password? Bios Password?Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista?Windows 7?OK,if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've gotto have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops withwindows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do whenyou buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling theOperating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator(hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once thedesktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the iconsbigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

This is a problem the only way to deal with this is to try to input until you can access your computer. Also if it is a Win 7 loaded computer you can look at the password hint section. Also for everyone it is advisable to make a password reset disk in case this does happen. Also you can completely re load your software if you cannot access the computer. This will give you back your operating system.

There is special software programs out there that will crack your password because there is so many of them I would not even attempt to share a link. I also highly recommend typing out the password in small readable print it out and cut it neatly and tape it with scotch tap under the DVD-R or CD tray when you open it right along the edge of the front lip.

Also use a password you will never forget use small caps only. John

1. There is a switch on the front left hand side of the laptop, just shift that to the right and will turn the wireless adapter on.
2. There is also a shortcut you can use, hold FN button and press F5. This will bring up the wireless/bluetooth menu, and you can turn it off/on from here as well.
