00187 error thinkpad 380xd

#1 Post by Droider » Fri Apr 26, 2019 8:15 am

Hey everyone, i found a good deal for Thinkpad 380xd. It reports 00187 error. I checked the hardware manual but there is no explanation for 00187. Checked internet but no information. Please enlighten me what it is and easy fix ?

Thanks

Look for Error 0187 instead.

I disassembled the whole thing to check if there was any burnt bad chips, to my surprise it looks fine and as new. Laptop checks the diskette for os or something eldr . I cant enter bios nor continue the boot. Here is a photo of the error. I really like to get 380dx kickin again cause it is such a beautiful machine. :)

The 380xd Error Code Table shows:

0187 EAIA data access error—The access to EEPROM is failed.

Corrective Action: Replace the system board.

Good luck with it.

Regards.

I suspect bad contacts on ATMEL 24RF08 EEPROM. Will let you know how it goes.
