Re: IBM Thinkpad T30 series
CMOS battery is dead.
Since the BIOS password is saved to flash, it would survive the dead
CMOS battery. You will need to remember the BIOS password you set.
If the BIOS flash memory got corrupted, then you are going to need
to replace the motherboard. Most laptops won't let you flash the
BIOS without entering the existing BIOS password.
