Doing a google search says that the 163 is caused by the time and date not being set in the BIOS.
Taking the battery out (during replacement) has lost that setting.
Apparently you need to hold down F1 (or perhaps alt-F1) during startup.
At some point you will be able to get into the BIOS settings, where you set the time and date.
Edit - other website suggestions are to hold down F10.
Knowing the model would be handy.
