Question about IBM Computers & Internet
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.
backup battery = CMOS battery
According to the error codes, you have a dead backup battery and the time is not set. Error: 161
(Dead battery.) 1. Go to Checking the Backup Battery
2. Backup battery.
3. System board.
(Time and date were not set.) 1. Set time and date.
2. System board.
