    Damn Drake, you're really showing your age. I didn't build my first computer until the pentium was out. :P

    I still have the K5 PR75 processor

    i read the post and the article. Excellent, but the link for the pdf file doesnt work. i assume that if i supplied +5v to pin 24 the clock time will be reset and everything else. Great article though

    btw, where is pin 1. is it the pin closest to the white dot on the chip?

    That's what I'd expect. In the picture, notice that while there is no white dot on the chip in the background, there appears to be an indent in the same place as on the foreground one. IIRC, the data sheet makes it more clear. My dial-up is slow tonight or else I'd check, but if you go to this link, which I think you saw, and then scroll to the bottom, that will give you a good link to the data sheet.

    nup, still dead

    thought: maybe, just maybe, i could go to a secondhand place or tip shop and get a clock chip out of an old computer?

    it would save me buying a new one for a computer which i ONLY want to recover the files then toss or sell.

    If you only want to recover the files, then just get a external case for the hard drive and plug it in to another computer. no need to boot it up!

    I think that the "clock chip" has a lithium battery built into it and I think that is the problem. So any other chip of the same age would likely be dead as well.

    that battery lasted 16 years, i thought they were suppost to last 10.

    also, i thought that the battery would last longer if you didnt use the computer a lot. on second thought, it wouldnt make a difference.
