Try a Microsoft/Windows update and look for the hardware update ( select Hardware updates on the left side of the page) to see if there is one for your keyboard. It may fix your problem?

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!

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:

IBM Thinkpad will not hold date & time.


Replace the backup battery and run BIOS Setup Utility to reset the time and date. This will resolve the issue.

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.

1) This is a typical problem when the CMOS battery is very weak or dead, it will continually display the date and time and reboot with the same errors until you change the CMOS battery. On this model it is behind the door that houses the memory chip, above the battery, if you have the laptop turned over and battery closest to you. <--best bet, its a dead CMOS battery.

2) You can get to the BIOS to run tests, one of 2 ways, either hit the ESC key and other keys to get a 301 error or hold the F1 key and boot, you should get into BIOS. (You probably won't be able to do this until you replace the CMOS battery.) From there you can run diagnostic tests on various components.

3) Lastly, you can update the BIOS. From inside the EASY-SETUP bios you should be able to copy the BIOS part number, date, etc. Look for the BIOS update based upon model # either thru a search on the web or directly on the IBM website (a search on google of "bios update thinkpad 380ed" will bring up a link for the IBM page.) If you choose to do a BIOS update, read the directions carefully and remember not to power off the machine while the update is happening. If you've never updated a BIOS before, get someone who has to walk you thru it before attempting it by yourself.

GOOD LUCK :)
