    im not sure what you mean by "restarting the battery" does this come before the login screen? Try unplugging your computer for 2 minutes and then plugging it back in (will erase cmos/bios)

    did you try unplugging it for 2 minutes? Not turning it off, unplugging it.

    Are you able to flash the Bios with the most current version?

    I'm just wondering whether you have actually cleared cmos to start with? did you shift any jumpers? what motherboard do you have? My understanding of booklock errors was that your bios has become corrupted to receive this error. Flashing it is probably one way of fixing it, but do you flash with your current version of bios or an upgraded one?
