Thinkpad 600E won't boot up?

Ibm Thinkpad 600e
May 9, 2010 at 11:32:48
Specs: Windows XP
I had this stored in a closet for a few months and now it won't boot up. I pulled the battery, the little yellow battery and RAM, attempted to start it, shut down and then reinserted batteries and RAM. Upon restart it took me to test screen where everything checked OK. It doesn't appear to see the hard drive or DVD drive though. Now when I attempt to start it goes to error screen with with Error 00161 & 00163 shown. Then it goes to time/date setup screen, then to wierd blinking Off - On screen.

Running Windows XP and previously ran with no apparent problems. THanks for any advice!!!

Try installing a new "little yellow battery".
