|IBM Thinkpad 600E : 163 and I9990305 Errors|
1) Using "F1" access to Bios does not reset date / time.
2) Next screen has 163, crossed-out red "OK", and a white arrow pointing to page-like IBM icon.
3) Final screen has I9990305 below which is a flashing cursor.
Note: I had access to IBM password sign-on and Windows XP Pro
programs and services without resetting date / time (i.e., only using "Esc" followed by "F1").
