\015 I have IBM lenovo thinkpad R51e , when i power on the laptop it show error code 271; check date and time setting, and seconds later this screen hides and show another screen with a lock icon and blinking cursor\015

Answers :

This error message is generated when the BIOS Date and Time is incorrect. Go into the BIOS configuration to change the Date and Time. When you reboot and still get the same error message then the BIOS battery is flat and needs to be replaced and the Date and Time setting needs to be change to the current Date and Time after replacing the battery.
\015\012If you cannot get into the BIOS configuration (press F1 on bootup) or you get a lock icon in the top LH corner of the screen, this is a Power on Password symbol, enter the passsword to bootup the laptop and then press F1 to get into the BIOS configuration.
