These error message relates to the BIOS and it appears the BIOS battery requires replacing because it is flat.
error 161 usually BIOS has lost its configuration/ checksum error.
error 163 usually BIOS clock not updating.
Replace this battery and go into the BIOS setting and configure the date/time settings, and hardware settings (if you are not sure select the factory default settings) save and exit

What do i do when my thinkpad says error


Reboot your machine while holding the F8 key as it boots back up. A menu will apear. Choose -->"start windows in safe mode with networking".
The os will start in safe mode. run an AVG virus scan, then run Defrag by exploring your computer, right click on C: drive, click PROPERTIES, then the TOOLS tab, click the "check now" button, and only checkmark the top box 'fix file system errors', then click ok, the computer will then tell you it will scan upon next reboot., Now click the DEFRAG NOW button. the choose defrag. After Defrag runs for about an hour and it is finished, restart the system. If is still won't run normally, go back into Safemode buy pressing F8 on reboot, then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot again. If it still won't run right, you may want to reinstall Windows and see if that works. If reinstalling windows doesn't fix it, it is may be a hardware problem.
Good luck.

System error


System error upon print option may be caused due to:
  • Improper device driver (printer).
  • Any corrupt file.
  • Any hardware error
Check all these before you start printing, Try to check a test print also..

Hi my IBM 2635-6AU, ThinkPad 380ED 26356AU screen is dark and i cant see


From what you are stating it seems like your backlight in your lcd needs to be replaced. Plug an external monitor up to your laptop. Press the fn & f key (the one with the picture of a monitor in it.) Your diplay should project to the monitor. Display is ok.....replace the backlight.

Hope this helps you
