well i googled the error like Jat said and found out its very common
its a dead CMOS and it fries (sort of speak) the mobo. yet all my other componenets are fine HD, Ram, except for the screen.
broke it trying to open the damn thing when there were more screws to take out. THANKS IBM FOR PLACING YOUR SCREWS IN SUCH NOTICABLE PLACES!!!
but that thing was junk anyway so what i'm going to do is buy another used thinkpad 600 (the same one i have) just to putts around with it.
any sites or stores in the U.S. that has these laptops?
i remember the wiz use to have used laptops, thats where i had gotten this one but they went out of business. thanks for any help
