IBM T43 Error 2010
  

How do i get rid of the "Error 2010" warning on my IBM T43 laptop? It appears everytime i boot the machine and i always press the Escape key to continue. The rest is ok except for the error message at startup. Any ideas on how i can get rid of this irritating warning?

Re: IBM T43 Error 2010

This error is displayed when the system disk is replaced by a one which is not a Thinkpad option crafted for that specific model of IBM laptop. Thus, the BIOS is expected to give a 'Error 2010' warning on every system boot or reboot. Though with the help of the Esc key you may ignore it, but it is considered to be not reliable. Also the performance of the system is affected.

Re: IBM T43 Error 2010

Solution for this error which you are getting on your IBM:

1. First you need to update the hard drive firmware with the latest one. You need to download the updated hard drive firmware, and then you can apply to the hard drive.
2. You can also replace the hard drive with the best supported one with the system being used.

Try with this solution and i can be sure that it definitely remove this error completely.
