    I have the same problem with the Errors 00161-00173900301 and when I set the time and date it shuts itself off. the battery is fully charged, when it goes off I leave it off.
    No sense if having the computer on if only get error messages
    I bought a ThinkPad boot recovery CD and disc and that don't work either.

My laptop IBM ThinkPad 600E 2645 by turning on shows the notice Error 129 in system board. The laptop cannot be put into service.


The ThinkPad error code 129 is a motherboard problem. This is a component failure on the motherboard and cannot be fixed easily.
The 600E is a very, very old laptop. I suggest you don't spend money on it, put your money towards a new or later model laptop.

Got an IBM thinkpad with error 00163?? Any help guy's?


This error code means the BIOS Date and Time needs setting.
This is caused by a flat BIOS battery.
Replace the BIOS battery, it will be a battery with a lead and connector and the battery will have yellow plastic surrounding the battery.

IBM Thinkpad 600e (2645),error 189 and could not installing win98


Usually this means a hardware failure. I would suggest reseating the CMOS battery overnight to reset the system. Also you might want to replace it as well. It could also be more serious such as a motherboard component failure.
Also IBM error code # 189 according to Scott Mueller's Upgrading and Repairing PC's (8th edition) - "Excessive incorrect password attempts." Is there a password on your CMOS ?
Also try hitting ESC key on boot to bypass. Good luck!

Error 161 and 163


The ThinkPad 600E is at least 5 years old? If so, have you changed a RTC Battery (CMOS Back-up Battery) 3V Button cell type that goes somewhere inside the Laptop and sits on the System/Motherboard. I hope you put it back the right way polarity is critical. If not then i have no idea to what it is, though someone will be able to help also you might want to try http://www.computing.net/answers/hardware/ibm-thinkpad-bios-error-code/ good luck, Bastian

Error 19990301 on a Thinkpad 600 usually indicates that the hard drive is not properly connected, and error code 19990305 signifies "no bootable device". So, it's the hard drive.

First of all, I would try removing and replacing the drive to see if that cures it. You can get the service manual from Lenovo at http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=LWIK-3SYPX2

If this doesn't fix it, the hard drive is faulty. However, small size hard drives (10 or 20Gb) which suit these older machines are very cheap on eBay.

ibm thinkpad does not boot My IBM Thinkpad 600 (Type 2645-310) stops and hang during bootup. What happens is: 1. LED test, then green Power on and orange battery/charging 3. RAM OK (Responds when I take out /put in different amount of RAM and displays correctly. I have 128 + 32 removable, + 32 internal not possible to take out) 2. I can hear fan, CD drive and evt diskette drive. If I use diskette drive the LED wil give 1 blink, if I use CD drive it will give 14 blink. 3. No cursor seen, but this is displayed: Upper left show the amount of RAM present: 196032 KB OK Upper right IBMs logo in blue; IBM Lower left shows "ThinkPad(R)" in large letters and red dot over "i". 4. Then a "rrrrrr" sound from the loudspeakers after a while, this is in fact 28 clicks shortly after each other. Then nothing more happens. Diskette and CD drive is OK (But can not be used because bootup is never finished). I hear CD speed up and then down again but nothing more happens. No effect in booting with bootable diskette or CD, "Live Linux" CD or else. Backup battery OK (3V) and if I take it out I will be asked for correct date and time when Power on. I can then use keyboard or TrackPoint to set date and time, and after that hangup at the usual point. Starting without battery, HDD, CD drive and removable memory sticks makes no difference in symptoms. Pressing and holding F1 before and during poweron and startup (in order to enter BIOS and selftest) has no effect. I could not find help on IBMs home page, but maybe I did not look at the right place. Is somebody able to help me?
