Hi, I keep getting some digits like error code 173, 192, 163 on my new IBM ThinkPad 600X PC Notebook. Every time I set the date and time then turn off the machine, the time and date are lost after turning on and the error code reappears. I reinstalled the OS. But I’m still not finding any solution. I’m waiting for your response about how to solve this. Thanks.
Time and date lose when turning on my IBM ThinkPad 600X
HI Ms. Shifflett,
I understand that you are having problems with your new IBM Thinkpad 600X PC Notebook. In lieu of your issue re: error codes 163/192/173, it appears that you are having problems with the BIOS on that notebook.
Please consider the following solutions:
**you would need to flash your BIOS using the discs/floppy that came with the laptop
**There's an internal battery that looks like that of a watch (small round silver battery) that needs to be replaced.
— laptop's internal clock resetting all the time is also caused by the items listed above.
It is highly unlikely that the CMOS battery died already but it is possible.
I hope I was able to help you out.
