boot problem in x121e

I need advice


After some minor changes in the BIOS of my new x121e I get the following endless loop:


 system starts - Thinkpad Logo - black -message: 'Configuration changed - Restart System' -  system starts again etc ...


It is impossible to stop this loop to get into the BIOS. All normal tricks like removing battery + BIOS battery + cable + pressing start button several times for 20 seconds + waiting 1 hour before switching on again do not help.


This error has been described also in the net already 3 months ago. Therefore now a workaround or some kind of recipe what to do should exist.


Is there somebody with an idea what to do next?

Re: boot problem in x121e

You need to go to BIOS and set as load default settings.


If the issue persist then you need to update the BIOS.
