Check and see if maybe you didn't put the battery in reversed. The problem you describe is exactly what happens if your CMOS battery dies.

Toshiba portege m100 hardwares not starting


Yes the CMOS battery needs to be changed. Then you can go into the BIOS and set the Date & Time.
The CMOS/BIOS will be set back to the defaults when you remove the CMOS battery and this may fix your problems.

Tip

CMOS Checksum error


Issue:
CMOS Checksum Bad or CMOS Date/Time Not Set


ae4e911.jpg
Cause:
This issue is caused when the CMOS values are incorrect. This issue can occur because of any of the below possibilities.
* Bad or old CMOS battery.
* BIOS update.

Workaround 1:
1. Disconnecting power from computer without shutting down computer.
2. Attempt to reboot the computer. If error still occurs after rebooting the computer enter CMOS setup and check all values, this includes verifying the time and date are correct. Once everything has been verified and/or changed make sure you save and exit CMOS setup.
3. If you have a Phoenix BIOS and have an option for 'Reset Configuration Data', set this value to 'Yes' and save and exit the CMOS.
4. If the computer was had the power disconnected while it was still running it is possible this could cause the CMOS to become corrupt. Ensure that the computer is ready to be shut off before turning off the computer. If you have a laptop computer ensure that the battery is charged before disconnecting the power connection.
5. If the CMOS values have become corrupted entering the values in CMOS setup and saving and exiting CMOS should resolve your issues.
Note: If this issue continues to occur after you turn off your computer off it is possible that the CMOS battery may be failing or already bad. Before considering replacing the CMOS battery try leaving your computer on for several days.
Workaround 2:
If you performed workaround 1 and the error occurs again after a complete power down (i..e. removing the power cord), the CMOS battery is likely bad. Most systems use a small coin style lithium battery. These often last 3-6 years, but at some point run out of juice and need to be replaced. For desktops, your system manual or motherboard manual should specify the type of battery and location on the motherboard. For laptops, it is often very difficult to access and may require a professional to replace it. To replace the battery on a desktop system:
1. Turn off the system and remove the power plug.
2. Remove the case or side panel to access the motherboard.
3. Look for a round silver coin cell, typically in a black holder.

4. Remove the battery while noting which way the battery is located. You may need a small flat screwdriver to release the side clip.
5. Install the replacement battery with the same battery type, being careful to insert it in the same direction as the removed battery (or using the polarity marked on the holder or manual).
6. Reassemble the case and power.
7. Turn on the power. You will get the CMOS Checksum Bad error once more, but it should be the last time. Go into the BIOS setup and set the date and time, and any other options you prefer.

You may need to Set the date and time in side your BIOS, you can enter inside BIOS by pressing DEL or F2 keys and set the date and time. Or you can set the time and date in windows mood also.

if still you are facing the same problem than you may need to change your CMOS battery, it can be located near RAM or may be near your H.DD inside the laptop. Replace your old CMOS battery.

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:

When a laptop/computer prompts for a BIOS date and Time setting every time you boot up, this indicates the BIOS battey is flat or nearly flat. This BIOS battery needs to be replaced and the BIOS Date and Time setting needs to be configured etc.

System Date Problem in EEE PC 1005HA


As if you have tried changing the date & time in your control panel plus BIOS.There is nothing left to be done regarding changing date & time.
But If your CMOS battery in the motherboard fails,it will always goes back to it deafult date & time.Replace the battery and it will solve your problem.

I recommend to use Sony Lithium Battery

I THINK YOUR MOTHERBOARD BATTERY MAY BE DAMAGED OR DOWN. YOU HAVE TO REPALCE THE BATTERY AND TRY AGAIN TO START THE PC.

The 161 CMOS error means the CMOS/BIOS battery is dead/flat and needs to be replaced.
The 163 CMOS error means the Date and Time could not be updated when you change the Date and Time setting. This is caused by the flat CMOS/BIOS battery.
When you replace the battery with a new one, the BIOS will go back to the default settings, go into to BIOS setting (press F2 when you boot up) and change the Date and Time, then save and exit.

My R40 Thinkpad loses the system date & time after being shut down for a while. However it does not lose it if only shut down for a few minutes. Any ideas please?


you need to change your cmos cell on motherbord circuit for that open back side cover and then you can see cmos cell on motherbord circuit.Change it pur chase new cmos cell.
Your old cmos cell has not enough waltage so your bios settings are not saved when you turn off the power.
