163-Time & Date Not Set.
I have access to the bios. all the changes i make gets saved so that tells me that it is not the rtc battery. when I tried to boot from floppy or cd i could hear the cd spinning but it goes back to the error above. It will boot from a floppy that i made for bios flashing. Please i need your help. thanks

I see this message on many different machines after the systemboard has been replaced. Normally the O/S loads and the PC pulls the correct time and date from our NNTP server.

Just press F1 and it should continue and load your OS. Once in the OS, just set the date/time and then shutdown and restart and you should be fine.
If you continue to get the 163 error, then the RTC battery is probably bad, and you'll need to replace it. But in the meantime, you can continue to use it by just pressing F1 to get past the error.

note: the problem had happened once before that (after dismantling and reassembling the system board), and i solved it by leaving the RTC battery unplugged overnight. However, that method was not working this time.
