Thank you in advance for your help.
Sound like your be going through the Y2K again... but without a hitch! It's a Mac...

Doh!... Your supposed to reset your PRAM, when you insert a new Battery otherwise your machine won't know if anything has changed... You might want to check the box that says "Set Time & Date automatically"
