Specs: Windows 95
My laptop screen and using external screen features will not display anything except error 161 and 163. I have the cord hooked into the wall, so why won't it work?

Sounds like you need a new CMOS battery; IBM calls it the "Backup Battery".

Error 161 is "Dead Backup Battery".
Error 163 is "Set Date and Time".

how about rite-aid(US). it has been awhile since I changed the battery on a 600..but, if I recall correctly it is the same battery that most desktops use, cr2032, 3v.

It's a CR-2025 battery with a pigtail on it.

Thanks! I did not realize that Amazon sold computer batteries such as mine needed! I have used Amazon in the past for DVD's and books, but WOW! Thanks again!
