\015 My system showing 162 - system Option not set..So i change Battery also. But again the same instruction is comming. So can you please help me?\015

Answers :

If you changed the battery on the mother board you erased all the setting on bios. You will have to enter Bios setup by usually hitting "DELETE" button. and reset to default options. Every Bios setup looks diffrent.
Common  keys are delete, f1, f2, f3 , f5 , f10 , escape and insert If these dont work, then check on Hp's page for your computer; you should be able to download a manual.
