During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
click start control panel date and time you can make your adjustments to the date and time from there or right click on the date and time and you should see Adjust date and time internet time tab hope hope this helps you

I have a notebook hp compaq n 8230 i am getting an error message 163 time and date not set cannot booting from cd please help


You need to get a Windows 98, Windows ME, or Windows XP boot disk and boot your laptop. Ignore all messages and once at dos prompt, type the word "TIME" and set the time and hit enter. Then type the word "DATE" and then set the date. (You do not need to type the commands in capital letters)

It says there are error codes 163, 8611, and 163 time and date pop up but if you try and pass that it freezes and shuts down again. please help


The 163 error is a BIOS Date & Time error. Go tinto the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time. If you boot up the next time and you get the same error, this is cause by a flat BIOS battery, replace with a new battery.
The 8611 error relates to the PS2 mouse bus connector, try a new mouse or use a USB mouse.

Error showing on boot


The 161 error means the BIOS battery is dead (flat).
The 163 error means the Date and Time is not updating.
The BIOS battery needs replacing and the BIOS settings need to be configured (ie the date & time)

IBM THINKPAD 600 - How to fix error codes 161 and 163


START WITH THE MACHINE OFF
HOLD and CONTINUE TO HOLD "F1"

WHILE STILL HOLDING "F1" TURN ON THE MACHINE
AND
CONTINUE TO HOLD "F1"
This will go into bios, you'll get a green and white screen.

Set time and date there, save and exit.

Should work.

I got a thinkpad 2635 yesterday from a friend and upon powerup it displays an error message with 00161 and 00163 printed under it with two options ok and cancel what do i do to get into this thing


These error message relates to the BIOS and it appears the BIOS battery requires replacing because it is flat.
error 161 usually BIOS has lost its configuration/ checksum error.
error 163 usually BIOS clock not updating.
Replace this battery and go into the BIOS setting and configure the date/time settings, and hardware settings (if you are not sure select the factory default settings) save and exit

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.
