I have a dell 466 and entering the time anddate keepscoming across the screen andi already did enter the time and date
What could be theproblem. it wont let me boot with the startup disk but on the othe r dell it does I finaly figured out how to get the cd rom to work I changed the pin to slave andthen i did not get no hard disk controler failure error message now when i do keep enteringthe time and date unnecessarily it leads me to a c prompt after that. Is that right If it does need a battery.Is there any special battery i have to put in there Can i get one off another machine if it fits
