I didn't think so either, but being a novice techie I took the laptop into the GeekSquad to find the CMOS battery; the 'rotund' gentleman found it in 6seconds? He Just looked at me as if he were thinking, "women!"
However he said, "Oh this? this is an antenna, in case you were going to hookup something something, for a wireless port" I was astounded.
I've ordered a CMOS battery, and see if that will allow the date/error messages to clear.
I'm really curious about the pics that may be on the hard drive, that's truly what I'm interested in.
Is it possible to get my hands on an IBM TP 600 and just use my hard drive?
