I'm new to this list, so please bear with me and forgive any dumb errors that I make.
I've got an IBM 365XD laptop that had a main board problem.
I've replaced the chassis with another 365XD chassis. All seems to be OK but it will only boot into suspend mode.
All appears to well through post, picture on the lcd, indicator lights seem to work properly starts to boot from the floppy, then the suspend light starts flashing and after a few seconds the power light goes out and the suspend light stays on. It will not boot into BIOS,
I've removed the HD, the CD-ROM, and the extra dimm stick. There are no error messages and there is a single beep following the post. I tried removing the CMOS battery. It had me reset the time, then booted into suspend again. My online manual for this unit said to short out the 2 little nubs to the right of the CMOS battery, but it made no difference.
Is there another way to reset the bios in this unit? Could it be that the bios was set up with a password? How would I change it?
