Answers :

Both errors are related to the backup battery which is located under\015\012the main battery. It is probably dead. You can get one on\015\012eBay for $3.29 w/free shipping or pay a shop $20 to put one\015\012in. If you do it yourself be very gentle plugging it into the\015\012tricky little slot - it is possible to break the connector loose from\015\012the motherboard but it is an easy repair if you have patience and\015\012dexterity. As for the password, try just hitting enter. It\015\012is the supervisor password to change the BIOS settings and was probably\015\012never set.
\015\012Hope this helps.
