Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R40 2681 ?

Whenever i bootup my laptop i get an alert of ERROR 0251.Kindly help me out to remove thios error


Answers :

On some models, it is not unusual to see a CMOS checksum error when you first reboot the computer after installing the new BIOS. If you see this message on your screen, press F1 as instructed. This displays the "TSETUP" screen. Press <End> to save the CMOS data. You won't see the CMOS checksum error again.
If step 1 still not working for you. After you flash the BIOS, turn off the power to the computer. Holding down the tilde (~) key on your keyboard and turn on the power. This will boot up to drive A. [This still is mystery to me, I do not have drive A.] Than do step 1.
How old is the computer? seems like the memory battery inside the computer is dead, its 3volt flat battery in most cases.

Take the laptop to a local professional, they will look into the problem and most likely replace the battery for you.

No picture My vaio VGN FS740/w has no picture even when i turn it on. I have attempted hooking it up to an external monitor to test to see if it was the screen but there is still no picture. When i turn it on i dont hear the usual sounds of it starting up like i did before i had this problem. I was thinking it was the motherboard but i have been unable to actually find a replacement for the motherboard. If you can help it would be much appreciated. thanks.
