I think you might have a problem with the *Other* battery in your machine.
According to what I was reading on IBM's web site, there is a small battery
in the machine for storing various configuration information.
A call to IBM Support might confirm this or prove that I'm completely wrong.
But, I think it would be worth the call.

I didn't describe my problem very well.
Last time i took out my regular battery it reset all my hardware settings of
BIOS. For example i had DMA1 and DMA3 on the sound chipset, and DMA0
to InfraRed. After i took the battery out and put it back in, all thouse
reset back to the original order. And in the original order the sound didn't
So every time i swap batteries, i'll have to reconfigure all the hardware
Although someone emailed me and told me that hibernation will hold my
hardware settings. I havent tested this yet, but i'll give it a try some
And i specificly need the cdrom because i have a lot of data zipped in many
which i use to do what i need.
