Date/Time Not Set and CMOS Error. The usual cause is the CMOS battery has died. Time to replace the battery.

I just worked on one of these laptops not too long ago.

Boy IBM used crappy batteries in these laptops; seems the 600X are plagued with inferior batteries. Almost every one I have come across has a dead CMOS. Yet it is very rare for me to come across other aged laptops with dead batteries.
