Answers :

The 161 CMOS error means the CMOS/BIOS battery is dead/flat and needs to be replaced.
\015\012The 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.
\015\012When 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.
