Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 600X Notebook ?

How to enter into BIOS when trackpoint was broken.

\015 To whom it may concern:\015\012\015\012How are you? This is Daniel. I have an IBM Thinkpad 600X notebook. Its trackpoint already doesn't work for a long time. I want to disable it. According to IBM manual, holding down F1 and turn on the computer, then modify its BIOS. But I tried serval times. The screen always shows me "ERROR CODE 8611" at first, and then I hit the "RESTART" button, and hit F1, the computer automatically enters into Windows XP system. I never see the BIOS menu. Could you give me a favor to tell me how to enter into the BIOS menu? I am looking forward to your help. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] Have a nice day.\015\012\015\012With best regards,\015\012\015\012Daniel.\015\012\015\012PS:\015\012Another guy told me the following method. But it doesn't work.\015\012\015\012Hold down F1+turn on computer\015\012-->Hit "RESTART" button --> when the screen shows "8611+notok+IBM book", Hit F5 or F8, you can go into BIOS menu.\015

Answers :

Hi there.
Its something to do with the trackpoint, possibly the cable has become loose.
\015\012* If an emergency power down is made by switching the system off during\015\012or while an application is open, then immediately switching the system\015\012on creates a 8611 error.
* Repeatedly turning power off and back on without properly shutting down or allowing the system to shut itself down.

Wait at least 6 seconds or longer after shutting down the system or before restarting to correct the 8611 error.
See if that gets rid of the error, if not it could be a loose cable to the trackpoint.

Good luck
