You know what, the computer's time is back to normal now, it's not resetting itself anymore, but the full amount of installed RAM still isn't being recognized. So there are 4 512 sticks installed, the first 2 slots are recognizing the full 512s fine, but the other 2 slots are only recognizing half of each stick installed. Could this PRAM battery be doing this?
