Question about IBM ThinkPad 600X Notebook
I know you have tried to help me regarding this laptop having errors 161 and 163. I have replaced the battery and on different times hit delete , F!,F2 keys still keeping getting this.
I wanted to know how i can just crashed the computer and reload Windows XP?
The battery that might be dead is not the main battery. It's the cmos battery, which is a coin cell battery located on the motherborad. It stores the setting in the bios and keeps the date and time accurate. Errors 161 and 163 mean the date and time are wrong. If the cmos battery is dead then, the date and time go back to 1/1/2000 every time the pc is restarted. Thus, you get the "wrong date and time" errors 161 and 163.

The same model ThinkPad
can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you
know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all
the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.
When you download the drivers,
write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which
driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on
your hard drive.
Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB
site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device
drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -
You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).
