IBM PS/2 errors 161, 163
Posted on 1998-03-30
In an attempt to change the boot order in this donated computer I tried to access the bios..
To do so I tried the normal del,f1 etc to attempt to get the bios setup to no avail.
I opened the system and tried to find anything like a button to depress to access the bios... again, no dice.
Next, I decided to just reset cmos by removing the battery in its entirety, hoping that the errros would allow for bios access. Again, I was wrong, and now I am left with error codes 161 and 163. The computer is an IBM PS/2 type 8570-061. I downloaded the reference disk to see exactly what it did as it came with no documentation. It does't fix the problem. Fi ;know or at least believe that the problem is with the current bios settings. So, any help with this is greatly appreciated.
