Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 380ED ?
When i turn it on i get error 161 and 163
\015 I have no disk and have continue to update everything\015
Unplug the computer and turn it over. Loosen the screw on the RAM chip door and remove it. You should see a small disk battery in a black plastic retainer. Use a small flat blade screwdriver to gently pop the battery out from the bottom edge. It will come out easily. DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE THE BLACK PLASTIC HOLDER OR YOU WILL RUIN IT. Reinsert the new battery by sliding it into the retainer and gently push down on the bottom edge and it will pop in. Battery CP1220 available from Radio Shack or Batteries Plus for less than $4.00
