Error 161 and 163

I put the new battery back in and changed the time and date to current from task bar area and control panel. I still get these errors. But when the laptop comes on it has year 2000 , jan, and i change the time and date there and the computer shuts reboots itself and comes back with a screen that has Off >On. I hit the tab key 3 times and the enter key 2 times then shut it down then it will come on correctly. Very frustrating doing this all the time.
I also noticed that one of the light to far right will blink orange sometimes.
I did not have til problem until time changed 2 weeks ago.
Any advice?
thanks

How can i recovery my system?


Sometimes your computer may experience problems and performance issues, which could interfere with common tasks. However, there is no need to worry because this can all be remedied by restoring your computer to an older date. Restoring your computer will allow it to go back to a previous setting before the date that you experienced the problems at. It is possible to restore your computer from points that are a day old to points that are even a few months old.
1.Click "Start" from your desktop. Open your "Control Panel." Click on "System." This will be near the bottom of the control panel and deals with the security, protection and performance of your computer.
2.Click "System Protection" under the Task menu. The task menu is on the upper left-hand corner of the window.
3.Click "System Restore" on the new window. Choose the recommended restore date, or choose a different date. "Click choose a different restore point." Click "Next" to change the restore point. Choose one of the last five dates shown, or click "Show points older than 5 days."
4.Click "Finish." Your computer will now automatically restart and apply the changes.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

HI, I have a IBM Thinkpad R50e and i had a CMOS battery failure. After replace the battery it has now started to ask me to check the date and time and when i press enter it is asking for a BIOS...


Dear john, replacing CMOS Battery usually RESET password ( plug out your laptop battery,then plug out the CMOS battery. keep it out for 5 minutes.)
After 5 minutes by, put back on the CMOS battery. put it back all together. laptop battery the last one.
On the first boot you need to set the time and date. or by pass it by pressing ESC. >> If your Operating System goes >>> right click on clock task bar >>Adjust Date/Time >> set as you wish >> apply >> ok >>>RESTART your unit.

  • system setup screen see the date and time
  • Using your arow key on the keyboard navigate to the date and change the date. Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow key / your page up / page down keys to change the date.

Using Msdos command

  • on the black screen type date
  • press enter. It will be showing the current date and also asking you to put the new date in the format mm-dd-yy,
  • type new one as per format
  • press enter

For time
Press Control + r key
type cmd
on the black screen type time
press enter. It will be asking for new time,enter new time and close the black box.

GOOD LUCK!!

I have several 600's and they all have the same issue. They are giving 161 192 163 errors. I replaced the battery in them and then go to try and setup the time. However, instead of letting me set the...


Hi,

161 = CMOS configuration lost (battery has died).

163 = CMOS error; Clock is not updating.

192 = System fan is faulty, not plugged into the system board or the system board itself is faulty.


Whe you replaced the RTC (real time clock/BIOS battery) did you make sure that the CPU fan was working?

If it is then go back into the BIOS and reset it to defaults. Save the changes and reboot, then go back into the BIOS and try to set the time and date.


Regards.

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
