Boot into your BIOS and apply the setting in there?
Doesn’t seem to be a solution from Googling. Looks like a total failure of some type.
You could try it without a hard disk and see what happens.
Remove battery out and leave computer overnight. Replace battery and see what happens.
But from the Google hits it looks like it’s dead.
163-Time & Date Not Set Invalid time or date in configuration memory.
RTC (real-time clock) battery may need to be replaced. Reset the date and time under Control Panel (Computer Setup can also be used). If the problem persists, replace the RTC battery. See the Hardware Reference Guide on the Documentation and Diagnostics CD for instructions on installing a new battery, or contact an authorized dealer or reseller for RTC battery replacement. 163-Time & Date Not Set CMOS jumper may not be properly installed.

I dont know how long you waited before you replaced the cmos battery when you took it out try these steps to see if it will clear it
2. Wait approximately 5 minutes. 3. Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer. 4. Connect AC power to the computer. Do not reinsert any batteries at this time. 5. Turn on the computer. All passwords and all CMOS settings have been cleared.
"I can’t enter the time and date in the BIOS. There is no line to enter that information." This is not a normal behavior you shuold be able to change the time and date to what ever is correct. What is the time and date that you see in it? Is it the same with every reboot like does it reset? Does it look like its moving up for as long as you keep the battery in?

I got a hp compaq nx6310.
The HDD is formatted and when turn the pc on it load the HP screen and opts to go into BIOS which I can access and modify options work fine. But then it comes up with "Error 163 time and date not set".
If I get a Ubuntu CD and try to run the live install it will not load and will stuck on a black screen with a flashing underscore character .
If I load any windows it will boot from the CD and load all dll and kernel but it stuck on "Setup is starting windows"
Previoully I have tried to run a HDD and RAM test which both have passed.
I also follow some tips I googled such as:
Reset the BIOS settings,
configure CPU DUAL to Disabled
Configured the SATA to disabled.
Still no luck. It does not looks like I can actually run any OS in there.
I also search Hp website for BIOS update but I only download *.exe files and I can´t run it as I can not load any OS.
