Dear Graham, Hoping to come on Saturday! A minor problem - when I restart my RISCOS 4.02 I get the error message ' The date is incorrect on your system clock' to which I reply 'OK' and then my 'Organizer' diary opens at 1st January 1900. I guess that this might be because the battery (there is one isn't there?) which keeps things ticking along has died. If this is the case where can I get a replacement and where does it go in the computer? Any advice will be much appreciated! Cheers, Jeremy
Hi Jeremy,It certainly sounds like the CMOS battery has failed - or is about to go terminal. I haven't got a computer open enough to point out exactly where it is, but the battery is about the size of a 10p piece and is soldered onto the motherboard. I'm copying this to other members who know better than me, but we can certainly look at a computer on Saturday if you don't feel strong enough to go solo!
