Question about IBM ThinkPad 600X Notebook
Dear sir i have ibm 600x laptop
giving a error 00161 & 00163
and also not going in bios setup why????
pls help me
161 - Dead CMOS battery.
163 - Date and time are not set clock not updated.
Replace CMOS Batt: On the bottom of the laptop you will see a screw that holds the memory cover on. (Next to the main Batt) Remove the screw and cover. The CMOS is plugged into the motherboard it is yellow and round tucked in the side of the case. (note how the black cable is towards the center of the laptop and the positive red cable is towards the side of the laptop). Remove the cable connector from the motherboard and pull out the old battery. This can be done by either gently pulling on the cables or using an object like a toothpick and gently tugging at the old battery to free it. With the old battery removed plug in the new battery with the black ground cable towards the center of the laptop and the red towards the side of the laptop. Insert the new battery into the space the previous one set at. Reconnect the memory cover and turn on your laptop. You will have to set the time and date and may have to cycle the computer (reboot) a few times. You can get this battery (CMOS) on eBay or at a computer store they are only a few dollars. (5-8) Good luck in your repair!
you need a cr2025 to replace it you have to pull the tabs of the old one off and tape them to a new cr2025 battery.
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.
