Replace bios battery 161 and 163 error codes


Most computers have a 'keep-alive' coin-cell battery on the motherboard that provides a DC voltage to keep the bios memory contents preserved when the computer is turned off. After a couple of years, the batteries need to be replaced with new ones. Look online for the service manual for your Thinkpad or look up 'Thinkpad 380ED bios battery replacement' on your favorite search engine to see if you want to tackle the process yourself.

IBM Thinkpad X60- Charging LED ( Amber) flashes continuosly- battery NOT charging


An incompatible charger could be doing this, as could a failed battery charging circuit in the notebook. It is also possible that the battery is no longer capable of accepting a charge. The universal charger must be able to provide the same voltage as the original charger and have an equal or higher rating for wattage or current.

Error message 00173,00163 will not boot corrctly


These errors are system options not set, and time/date not set (if I recall correctly off the top of my head)
Basically, you need to replace the CMOS battery.
I would order one online from a place like EVERCORP.com ( a link for YOUR battery is here... http://www.evercorp.com/catalog/batteries/Laptop/Laptop+CMOS/IBM/ThinkPad+600%2C+600D%2C+600E%2C+600X/CR2025-WR/ )
It will cost a lot of money though...almost $10 ! And there will be shipping on top of that, and the battery weighs almost a whole ounce!
If you can maybe second mortgage your house so that you can afford these hefty costs, the installation is almost as hard as the price is high.
Fear not though, installation instructions should come with the battery (which hides in the RAM compartment as I recall).
Once the battery is replaced, set the system options and the time/date, and you should never see that error again!

Lenovo laptop(8932) will go into a sleep like mode (you can still see the screen, very dim) when plugged into ac adaptor. Doesn't do it with battery power. Changed system board, power adaptor - no...


Good Day Psmith!

It looks like the AC adaptor is not making the right supply voltage needed for your laptop.

If you have a multi tester, you can test your ac adaptor to see if it has stable 20V voltage output supply needed for the laptop to make it work.

Set your tester to DC range. Plug the ac adaptor to your wall socket. Hold the other end of the ac adaptor (the one you connect to your laptop. Insert the red (positive) lead into the center of the adapter pin, then touch the black (negative) lead to the outside metal part of the pin.

Read the display in your tester. If the adapter is working properly, the meter should read between 19 to 20 volts of the rating. If the adapter is faulty, the meter will read below 18volts.

If that would be the case, I'm afraid you will need to replace your ac adaptor.

You can purchase online a replacement ac adaptor for lenovo 8932.

I keep getting ;messages saying I need to replace the internal battery 601/ Can I buy that online?


This sounds like the error you would get on an IBM thinkpad or Lenovo laptop.
There are third party sources for these all over the place.
As an example, I own an IBM thinkpad model A20M.
If I google a20m CMOS battery, I am sure to find a plethora of sources online.
Being Canadian, I go to Ever Corperation at www.evercorp.com for any replacement batteries I need.
Make sure when you order your battery that you aren't ordering the main battery pack, and are indeed ordering the CMOS battery.
Installation instructions should arrive with the battery.

New battery incorrect - power supply no longer


If indeed you have connected a 20V battery to a 16V system you may have damaged your system to the extent that it is unecomomical to repair.

Ibm sreen shows but very dim, both on battery and when plugged to


I haven't dealt with a lot of Thinkpads, however when I've ran into this situation on Toshiba and Dell it's because the settings in Contol Panel have accidently been set to "battery mode". Go to Control Panel and select "power options", be sure that you have the Plugged-in options set to high. In some cases, as with Toshiba, they have an additional program listed to run these options. Then select this program instead.

To unlock a Thinkpad that has been Supervisory locked is not so easy. You have to take it apart in both cases that I know of. Easiest is to find the system battery located on the Motherboard and remove the battery. Once the battery is removed short out the connector pins for 30-60 seconds. Slip the battery back in and you should be able to get into the Bios settings. Bad news is that it will also reset all settings back to factory though now adays most are Auto settings.

The other way in my opinion is way to complicated, it's easier to ask to person you purchased from for the password. But go here if you wish to try your luck for instructions, http://www.security-forums.com/viewtopic.php?t=23102.
