IBM ThinkPad 600x erros 161 and 163 cannot enter BIOS EasySetup

\015 Boot my TP 600X get errors 161 and 163 on post [also 8611], still has a\015\012blank POP, so have to give it a return after the lock icon [this is how\015\012got into this problem to begin with, since the keyboard connector is\015\012broken, and thought removing the battery, and the CMOS battery would\015\012rest this, it did not, and after finding to things in the hardware\015\012manual, how to reset POP via POP pads, and a keyboard can be connected\015\012to the mouse PS2 via a Y cable]. Then get this screen that shows the\015\012error list, similar to the BIOS setup page in a rectangle, a bird that\015\012can be moved by the mouse and a choice in the bottom of the box of\015\012either OK or Cancel, or pressing a Return, all of which results in the\015\012screen changing what is in the rectangular box to have the error list\015\012and a ---------> [large open book icon], the keyboard is locked, can\015\012only power off or power reset the computer. Pressing F1 either during\015\012the power up, starting with it pressed before, and holding it does not\015\012change it. Tried doing the same thing by holding down the F1 key then\015\012pressing the Return after getting the Lock icon, it delays the\015\012process and seems to start something, activate something, see the\015\012underline cursor blinking then blank, after some seconds [still holding\015\012the F1 key pressed, to try to enter into the BIOS setup], it still goes\015\012to this rectangular box described above, sometimes in the middle of the\015\012blank time, that is after the white underline cursor disappears, have\015\012seen a blue character there in the upper left corner, either a 3 [most\015\012common] or a 2, for a moment, maybe a second, then goes to this\015\012rectangular box screen. Have also tried a delete key in the sequence,\015\012but maybe need some more specific instruction on this. Had seen a post\015\012in another forum stating this problem, and a solution that two of the\015\012steps outlined in the manual are erroneously stated out of order, but\015\012no specifics about the steps. [seems that the answer was given\015\012privately to avoid possible thieves from getting it, was dated Oct. 27,\015\0122004], and avoided having to replace the system board, as many state\015\012including the manual.Can you be of help to getting access to the\015\012EasySetup of the BIOS [which is not easy to get to now]? What are the\015\012steps outlined in the manual, and maybe which two are out of order? or\015\012at least possibly once having the the steps, could figure out which two\015\012might be out of order, or get there by trial and error? This seems to\015\012be a problem that has many listings, that have searched over the last\015\012few years, and this is the closet have come to a solution yet.Thank You\015

161 error refers to a flat BIOS battery, it is dead - you need to replace the battery with a new one..
\015\012163 error refers to the date and time setting in the BIOS, it is not correct, this is also caused by a flat BIOS battery.
The Geekman is spot on. Adding bad Trackpoint (8611). Begs the question why would this response be tagged thanks for trying instead of this worked great? Here is a link:http://www.thinkpads.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=73396
