Ibm 330 6576 Won’t remember clock

Postby Mowdy » 2019-8-14 @ 19:56

I’ve got my hands on a ibm 330-6576 100mhz. I have replaced cmos battery but it keep flashing error 163 wrong date and time. There is no acid from old batteries or loose soldering and I can measure 3.2v on the motherboard. Switch are in correct positions and jumper settings. I’m out of ideas please help me !

Does it remember the other settings from BIOS? Try disabling certain things and do a cold reboot. Make sure the new battery is working fine.
