Date and time reset all the time.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone here have the same problem that I have?

Everytime when I boot up from OS X the data and time always sets back to 1969......

I suspect it was the battery but I don't have the date reset thing happen with OS 9

Any idea?

D'oh! This must the the hundredth time I've explained this... oh well. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

Here's the brief explanation: If you have a SCSI card, OSX queries it at startup and it return some kind of reset flag. This bug was introduced in 10.1 GM and wasn't in any of the dev builds I tried before the GM. The only solution is to yank out the offending card or not restarting (yes, I know this isn't a solution for you with your OS9 apps).

Does that answer your question?

But I don't have ANY cards sitting on the PCI slots

Now that's even more weird...

oh! that IS wierd... we apparently have the same Mac (DP500G4?) so I'll do some tests when I get home. I've never actually taken out my SCSI card (OSX boots off my SCSI drive).

Hmmm... no PCI cards at all? :confused:

I'll investigate further...

I went to MacOSX.com and MacFixit forums and many people have the same problem.

About the majority of people who have this problem are using DP machines.....well...I use DP too

I can't believe OSX is giving so many glitches to the DP users
