I have an old 2001-era IBM ThinkPad A22m that was donated to my hub. I was skeptical that it could be used at all (800 MHz CPU, 256MB installed memory), but thought I would give it a try.
When I turn it on, it doesn't even boot up. I get the a black screen with the following message:
0271: Check date and time settings
Press to Setup"
I am able to access BIOS and change the boot order so the CD ROM was first, but when I try to boot the Lubuntu CD (which works perfectly in other machines), I get the same ERROR message.
