  1. Hello all, I'm a newbie and look forward to a great learning experience from this site. I have an IBM 600X thinkPad that is giving me a problem that i have not experienced before. Upon boot i receive a screen that has a circle then the word off followed by the greater than sign (>) followed by a verticle line the a smaller verticle line and then the word on. Looks very much like this O off > I on Anyone have an explanation for what this is, what it means and how can i deal with it? Thanks, laryjacq.

    laryjacq, try to clear CMOS memory. to do this, disconnect the CMOS battery(it's located near memory slots and it has yellow color).
