SOURCE: IBM T30 laptop- replacing CMOS battery

Provided the laptop booted (albeit to requiring bios set up), all is well. The data such as time needs to be re-entered manually, because since the battery is required to maintain volatile memory, when the battery goes flat or is removed, the data is lost. Re-enter all data, including boot sequence (i.e. IDE 0, CD-ROM/DVD)! exit saving to CMOS. should reboot to OS.

SOURCE: IBM Thinkpad T20 CMOS Battery Replacement?

The C-mos needs replacing. On the T20 series the c-mos is under the battery or a panel on the bottom of the machine, it looks like a large watch battery in a yellow sleeve. Once you've found it, you will see the two wires leading to the connector. Finding it is half the battle. In order to reach the connector you will have to remove the keyboard. Once you disconnect it, it will come out through the bottom. You can purchase a new one at Bestbuy.

SOURCE: removed my CMOS battery, but the BIOS settings won't disable

There are 2 ways you can reset your bios. 
1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in your system. Your reset is now complete 

2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and
3. Your reset is now complete
There might also be an option within the BIOS to "Load Defaults" if that is all you are looking to do
please see this http://www.11a.nu/software/bios-pc-bios-security-and-maintanance-toolkit/
hope it helps!

SOURCE: forget BIOS Password (Laptop - IBM Thinkpad Lenovo R60)

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.

SOURCE: IBM Thinkpad 600e (2645),error 189 and could not installing win98

Usually this means a hardware failure. I would suggest reseating the CMOS battery overnight to reset the system. Also you might want to replace it as well. It could also be more serious such as a motherboard component failure.
Also IBM error code # 189 according to Scott Mueller's Upgrading and Repairing PC's (8th edition) - "Excessive incorrect password attempts." Is there a password on your CMOS ?
Also try hitting ESC key on boot to bypass. Good luck!

Where do I find cmos on think pad to replace it


CMOS is soldered to the motherboard, and therefore is considered not replaceable. Are you confusing CMOS with system memory? Google make, model, and replace memory for suggestions.

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!

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.

Hello how to reset bios password of ibm thinkpad t23 2647


Hi,

To unlock the bios password on your laptop, you will need to remove the cmos battery on your laptop for some minutes and insert back, the cmos battery is located on the motherboard of your laptop, once the cmos battery is removed from the motherboard for some minutes, the bios password will be reset, and that fix the problem.

Take care.

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!!
