Hi,
I have a question, everytime I start up my pismo (MacOS 9.1) it asked
me to adjust the date setting. It's always show me year 1904 or 2040.

Anyone can help me ?
because I don't even remember last things I've done with my powerbook. This problem already occured for months, and now it's starting to annoying me

TIA

First off, try zapping the PRAM (skip to the next paragraph if you're familiar with it). This erases the memory that stores certain control panel settings, including date and time. It can become corrupt, and this sometimes fixes it. Do it by restarting and holding down command-option-P-R. Release the buttons after you hear the second startup chime.

If the problem persists after that, the lithium backup battery on the logic board might be dead, so you'd have to get it replaced.
