I have G4 with dual 1.25 processors about 4-5 yrs old I believe, just recently when I start it a box pops up that says the date is set incorrectly and it may cause problems, sorry I dont remember the exact wording, but I check the date a ttime and its correct. is this possably a trojan horse? If I need to I will write the exact phrase down when it does it again, seems to do it pretty regularly, the computer seems to bebehaving pretty good other than that
thanks for looking and hope some one can figure it out
thanks

Hmm. Sounds like a dead PRAM battery from the old, old, old days in old Macs (pre-OS X). Do these PowerMacs still use PRAM batteries nowadays?

Yep, they do! Power Mac G4/1.25 GHz (June 2003):

battery: 3.6V lithium
Here you go if you want to install it yourself: 3.6V NewerTech Lithium 1/2 AA PRAM battery.

DOH! Forgot to link you to the manual... Look in the Power Mac G4 section here and choose your model, according to the stats I linked you to in my post above. You should get instructions on where to find the PRAM battery in there.

Thanks for all of the answers and links, I ordered 2 batteries today, I have a similar mac at home so I will replace both or keep it till the other one goes dead. My local Mac dealer wanted 19.95 each for the batterys, good thing I didnt go there first

Well Thanks again
