These error codes indicates that the cmos battery is dead and needs replaced. The cmos is a large watch type battery, about the size of a nickle, that will be in a slot on the motherboard or in a yellow pouch with two wires that lead to a connector. If in the pouch it will be located either under the battery or the keyboard. Replace the cmos and the problem should be fixed.

Received a Blue Screen with Fatal Error


Please turn on the machine and keep hitting softly the F8 button on the keyboard.
When the list of options show up, select SAFE MODE and wait for the PC to load default drivers. Once asked to log in, please select "ADMIN". If none exists then select your user account.
A pop-up greets you, just click on "OK" to proceed.
Click on "Start"
Click on "My Computer"
Right click on your hard-drive and select "Properties"
Click on "Tools" tab
In the dialog box, check both options that is
"Automatically fix file system errors"
and
"Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors"
Click "Start" and accept by clicking on "YES" to accept a scheduled scan.

Problem with my ASUS W3J also with BIOS.


Sounds like your hard drive is toast. Replace your hard drive and try again. If it continues, it may be time to replace your laptop.

Also check your recovery disks for heavy or concentrate scratches.

Error 00161 00163 unit comes on and shows this screen any imput would be great thanks


According to the error codes, you have a dead backup battery and the time is not set.

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

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:

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

WHILE STILL HOLDING "F1" TURN ON THE MACHINE
AND

This will go into bios, you'll get a green and white screen.

Set time and date there, save and exit.

ERROR MESSAGE READS...


Try starting it in safe mode. (Hold F8 after power on). If you get your icon screen go to start, run and type in msconfig. Click startup and disable all the items. Hit OK and try a normal restart. This error can be caused by a bad program starting up.
