No, the battery is not dead - I've keeped the computer unplugged for hours a number of times, and time was still passing, moving from April 10th to April 11th and so on.<br> What happened was I never gave a chance to the hardware clock to get back to 2006, after I resetted it to 1976 by zapping the PRAM and NVRAM.<br> But then after people from this mailing list kindly told me how to set hardware clock to system time, the clock was back to 2006 at last.<br> <br> So this problem is solved for good :-)<br> <br> Cheers,<br> <br> Y-Lan<br><br> <br> <br><b><i>Bartosz Zaród &lt;Bartosz@...&gt;</i></b> a écrit&nbsp;:<blockquote class="replbq" style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; padding-left: 5px;"> <br>On 2006-02-14, at 20:19, Y-Lan Boureau wrote:<br><br>&gt; Thanks everyone :-))<br>&gt;<br>&gt; My system date is back to 2006 !<br>&gt;<br>&gt; Cheers,<br>&gt;<br>&gt; Y-Lan<br><br>Having a dead battery, system clock resets to it's initial value only
