These errors coming up are telling you that your time and date are not set. There is no real problem here but it is an annoyance. the only fix for this is to replace the bios battery on the motherboard. If you want to replace the battery the link below will bring you to a site that has instructions and pictures of how to replace the battery

HOW TO SOLVE ERROR 08611 ON IBM THINKPAD TYPE 2645


If you downloaded IBM 600 repair manual, 8611 error is fixed by reseating the keyboard connector on the system board. Which means you have to unscrew 13 bottom screws to take out the keyboard.

Starting ibm 600e


Hi there.
Errors 161, 192, 163.
All three of these errors are connected to the back up battery.
To resolve this problem:
1. open memory flap on base of laptop (small philips screwdriver required)
2. find the small connector with 1 black & 1 red wire coming from it.
3. disconnect above connector and gently pull the Red&black wires. The backup battery should just pull out from under the casing.
4. get replacement battery. Either
a. call IBM spares (07900 247 490 in UK) and ask for FRU:
02K6502. UK price is about £8 + £15 delivery + VAT.
b. if comfortable with soldering iron: Carefully open the packaging on the backup battery using a sharp knife.
Remove the solder tags from the battery (these are spot welded so need to be cut/broken off). Buy a new CR2025 battery from any computer shop, jeweler, or camera shop.
Using electrical tape, insulate all round edge of battery
Solder the leads onto the new battery - note polarity. Red wire to +, black wire to -.
Using more insulating tape, wrap battery so that all exposed metal is covered.
5. put new battery into laptop (reverse steps 1-3)
6. start up computer, error 192 has gone, but still shows 161, 163. Select OK.
7. reset date & time, and OK
8. when screen shows 'O / I' restart laptop using on/off switch at side.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

IRe: IBM 600E


Hi, sorry I was out last night.
Errors 00161/00163/00173 mean you need to replace the CMOS/BIOS battery and update the time, date etc, like you did.. and Error 00301 means a keyboard error. Just press CtrlAltDel past this.. or try using an external PS-2 keyboard..

So, when you startup and then get to the errors, just press CtrlAltDel to restart, then tap F1 to enter the Advanced Settings and try to load Windows in Safe Mode, and let it do a Scan Disk.

It's possible that the machine won't be able to load any hardware drivers for the machine because the CMOS information might have been corrupted due to the flat battery, but try and boot into Safe Mode anyway and see how you get on.

This is a really old machine but still has driver and troubleshooting support at the Lenovo website, and it might be fun and interesting to resurrect..

Hardware Maintance Manual - June 1999: ThinkPad 600, 600E
On pages 109 and 115of the attached pdf file (actual pages 103 and 109), the Li-Ion batterypack part number should read 12P4064 replaces 02K7018.

BIOS Update (Diskette) - ThinkPad 600
PCMCIA SelectaDock I/II driver for Windows 95/98 - ThinkPad 600, 770

c.gif Windows 98 installation supplement files - ThinkPad 600, 760, 765, 770
This is the Setup Guide for the thinkpad 600.

Of course, it may very well load Windows fine after a new battery and a scandisk and you'll find it has Windows 2000 on it, so maybe I'm jumping the gun with the Win98 stuff there, but let me kow how you get on..

Oh by the way, if we are going to be using a different Solution thread this time, can you go back to the other page and rate it as Fixya! so that they can take it off the system? It saves the unrated pages filling up the servers..

Battery Life


As long as the battery is working properly it doesn't need to be changed. Laptop batteries are like any battery the more you use them the faster they wear out. If available you should always use the power supply.
