Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 380ED ?

174 error message on thinkpad 380

\015 I left my laptop off for more than one year ,now when i try to boot i get the error message 00174My laptop think pad 380 gives me this error 174, it will let me do the system check but when I restart it it gives me the same error code. I tried holding f1 down before starting but that didn't help at all. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

I have the same problem!!!!
Try this:
Start with the machine OFF, hold down and CONTINUE TO HOLD the "F1" key and turn on the power WHILE STILL HOLDING DOWN "F1"
This\015\012should get you into the bios/setup, which on most thinkpads is pretty\015\012simple and self explanatory. You can reset the date, and something\015\012called "initialize" as I remember.
POST YOUR MODEL NUMBER!!!!
Ibm.com's\015\012support is famous for having very good, extensive support for\015\012thinkpads. I searched for this error no. but we really need the model\015\012number
