IBM Thinkpad 600e (2645),error 189 and could not installing win98

\015 I have IBM Thinkpad 600e laptop. It is showing error 189 at the POST. I could not instal win98 due to the above error. pls give me a solution\015

Answers :

Usually this means a hardware failure. I would suggest reseating the CMOS battery overnight to reset the system. Also you might want to replace it as well. It could also be more serious such as a motherboard component failure. \015\012
\015\012Also IBM error code # 189 according to Scott Mueller's Upgrading and Repairing PC's (8th edition) - "Excessive incorrect password attempts." Is there a password on your CMOS ?
\015\012Also try hitting ESC key on boot to bypass. Good luck!
