Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R30 2656 Notebook ?

I was installing software on the computer when it froze so shut it down. When restarted it wouldnnt reboot. Error came up 01888: Invalid RFID Serialization Info Area or Bad CRC2


Answers :

What software,???

Have you changed the operating system from what the laptop came with.

When it posts see what version bios you have, then go to the website
of your MFG and see if there is a newer version, if you have the newest,
flash the bios to an older one, if you have a older one flash to a newer one.

If you don;t have your manual, get it while you there, are read how to flash your bios very carefully, make sure you know it well before you do this.

You can also try, system restore, or recovery, again, when your laptop
first posts, at the bottom you will see commands, one for enter bios,
boot order, and so on one should be restore or system restore.

The error you posted is a bios error, so it depends if you have changed things or systems.

Try and restore the unit first and see if this works.
Hello,it looks like system boards problem that cause bios problem,try to run Bios setup utility and load bios setup default,i think its F10,save and exit.If your problem still occurs go again to Bios setup utility and in general information check if your ram are being recognized and let me know

I recently moved house and got virgin media to install phone tv and broadband. Connected the modem through Ethernet. Worked fine....then the PC froze and when I restarted, start up message was "PORT 00 error: Error refreshing port". Took out modem and same message still appears. Windows doesn't load and system hags for CD to be entered. Tried "repairing windows" with CD to no avail. Any ideas. It's a Medion PC btw forget what model.


That's fantastic, but other than blaming either Virgin or your new house for the PC problem, not terribly instructive.  What's this about a modem...you mean you connected your PC to Virgin's cablemodem using cat5 ethernet, which is pretty normal ... PC Desktops

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
