Ibm Thinkpad 355cs

Recommended Posts

Im repairing this old laptop as a favor for a friend and when I started up it gave me 2 errors






After some quick research I find that 301 is a keyboard error (just had to go in and connect some ribbon cable) and 8611 is a System Bus Error


After using the bios self test it said everything was ok so I figure that the cmos battery is dead


What is your guys oppinion?


The battery isnt your average watch battery and after checking around it will cost like 20 dollars to get it


I just dont want to waste 20 bucks of these peoples money if it's already trash


So any oppinons would be great
