Hi, was having date and time problems with 450 Hz dual processor G4 (was defaulting to the 1904 date on OS9 start-up). So I replaced the pram battery. It now sporadically starts-up with the year 2040 (I understand this is the lifespan given to it by Apple). I've tried resetting the pram but nothing has changed. Will resetting the cuda/pmu be an option for this problem or has the trusty old bus finally turned its last wheel?
