Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 600X Notebook ?

Error codes 161 and 163 and problem entering BIOS to settings

\015 Understand that these error codes are for the CMOS battery and time and date setting in the BIOS, respectivelyAlso realize had done was to remove the CMOS battery which was working fine, and then reconnected it. Does the system prevent entry into the BIOS if the CMOS battery is seen faulty? Without clearing this error [161] it will be impossible to get into the settings?Additionally the problem still exists after replacing the CMOS battery. Have seen many post this problem in several forums on the net in my searches over the last few years. The one finally saw yesterday, that stated about an adjustment to the sequence to the steps in the manual, a averted a costly system board replacement, is the first one have found that says anything otherwise.Am looking to see if YOU know what these steps are, or what document they may be in. Did not find them in the Hardware Maintenence Manual C79KDMST, and as stated the one that responded to the requester, wrote that had answered in private, seemingy to protest against thieves. [maybe she was just refering to clearing the POP which is clearly outlined in this manual anyway]So can you help me more with the correct sequence of steps to entering to the BIOS settings, especially that there is this 'blank' POP requiring a Return at the Lock icon prompt, and with these errors, or at least after the Error 161 is cleared.Thank You\015

Thanks.
