161 Real Time Clock Power Loss

 

If you have just replaced a motherboard and get this error:

 

1. Boot into this BIOS - Tap ESC or F10 repeatedly at power on.

2. File - Enter Time and Date.

3. F10 to Save and Exit.

4. Allow Windows to load.

5. Restart the computer and you should not have the error.

 

 

Side Note: If you're also seeing the 'Invalid Electronic Serial Number' error post motherboard replacement, see this forum post (with pictures:smileywink:).
