Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 380ED ?

Numerical Error Code 161 and 163

\015 I have an IBM ThinkPad 600 - initially there was also an error code for 192. All the codes appear to relate to the cmos battery, which I've now replaced, and the 192 error has gone. I just can't get past the 161 and 163 error codes - on pressing return it just takes me to the screens telling me that the time and date aren't set - but I can't do anything else with it, and the message just refers to the manual which I have. How on earth do I reset the time and date, when there's no response ?? Please help - I now have 2 of these laptops with the same problem !!\015\012Many thanks for your time :o)\015
