    That is the cmos battery that is dead. It's generally a cr2032 button cell. What kind of laptop do you have so I can get you instructions how to replace it?

Basically, unscrew the keybaord screws, lift up keyboard, and you should see it.

To unscrew the keyboard, turn the laptop over and any scrwe hole that has a little keyboard symbol next to it, unscrew.

Mostly this problem comes up if you dont shutdown your computer properly as in by offing it by holding the power button and stuff like that. What you can try doing is when you on the computer it should let you choose if you want to go to the BIOS menu or System Recovery and you go to System Recovery and if you would like reboot the whole computer or just choose to repair the windows and it will reinstall the windows files only which should take care of the problem.

Laptop SONY VAIO VPCEB32FM: how to remove BIOS password


The BIOS password is probably the Power On Password.
This method may not work. Remove the BIOS battery for 20 mins until the charge in the BIOS is depleted. Insert the BIOS battery go into the BIOS setting and set the Date and Time etc.
If this does nor work then the BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery won't work and there is probable no backdoor passwords.
The Sony support maybe able to offer a solution, check the support WEB site..

Error 00161 00163


[CHANGE YOUR CMOS BATTER WHICH IS INSIDE YOUR CPU CASE]
I do not think you fixed the CMOS battery - (backup battery = CMOS battery)
According to the error codes, you have a dead backup battery and the time is not set. Makes sense?
161
(Dead battery.) 1. Go to Checking the Backup Battery
2. Backup battery.
3. System board.
163
(Time and date were not set.) 1. Set time and date.
2. System board.


Go to www.ibm.com Find and download the user manual, and the "hardware maintenance manual."
Do you know how to get into bios/setup?

Start with the machine OFF. HOLD DOWN and CONTINUE TO HOLD THE "F1" key.
WHILE STILL HOLDING "F1", turn the power on, and CONTINUE TO HOLD "F1"
This will get you into the bios "setup." You should check the date, bootup order, etc, and reset.
I would check the "wire" you think you reconnected---you may just not have actually reconnected it.
The "hardware maintenance manual" shows you how to maintain this machine, and it explains the meaning of the error codes.

This will get you started on looking for the manual:

Will laptop work with dead cmos battery?


Yes, but each time you start the computer you have to enter the BIOS to set the proper time and date. This is essential for certain progra,s to run correctly, when the computer shuts off, everything will be reset once more.

I have got two T21, both of them have the same syptoms. The batteries are dead, need to input date and time each time when they start up. Recently, the power of the laptops disconnected suddenly when...


The BIOS battery in both laptops are flat and needs to be replaced.
This is why the Date and Time needs to be entered each time you power up because it cannot retain the BIOS settings.

162-System Options Not Set; 163-Time & Date Not Set


The bios settings are being lost during offtime. This is due to the cmos battery being dead. Most units have a round 3-volt lithium battery in a clip/holder. A few use a rechargeable battery that recovers if the unit sees frequent use. Can you verify the model number of this unit?

Laptop will not keep current date/time


The BIOS battery is nearly flat and this is causing the time to drift.
Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, then you will need go into the BIOS configuration to set the date and time.

Time and date wont store


A battery would fix this but it is the battery on the motherboard that you need. How old is this computer?

Ibm screen error


161 - Dead CMOS battery.
163 - Date and time are not set clock not updated.

Replace CMOS Batt: On the bottom of the laptop you will see a screw that holds the memory cover on. (Next to the main Batt) Remove the screw and cover. The CMOS is plugged into the motherboard it is yellow and round tucked in the side of the case. (note how the black cable is towards the center of the laptop and the positive red cable is towards the side of the laptop). Remove the cable connector from the motherboard and pull out the old battery. This can be done by either gently pulling on the cables or using an object like a toothpick and gently tugging at the old battery to free it. With the old battery removed plug in the new battery with the black ground cable towards the center of the laptop and the red towards the side of the laptop. Insert the new battery into the space the previous one set at. Reconnect the memory cover and turn on your laptop. You will have to set the time and date and may have to cycle the computer (reboot) a few times. You can get this battery (CMOS) on eBay or at a computer store they are only a few dollars. (5-8) Good luck in your repair!
you need a cr2025 to replace it you have to pull the tabs of the old one off and tape them to a new cr2025 battery.
then
Start with the machine OFF. HOLD DOWN and CONTINUE TO HOLD THE "F1" key. WHILE STILL HOLDING "F1", turn the power on, and CONTINUE TO HOLD "F1"
This will get you into the bios "setup." You should check the date, bootup order, etc, and reset.
