New member here-hope this is the right forum for this question. I'm running an AST I/O Plus II but also have a 6 Pack Plus available to use. I once had this problem on a Pentium motherboard and the problem turned out to be a jumper that determined clock speed was on the wrong setting. Whether that's the cause or not I'd appreciate any help in correcting this.

Thanks in advance and Happy 4th of July. Very Happy

Didn't it require a coin-cell battery? Have you checked the integrity of it?

thanks for the response. yes there's a 3V lithiuim battery which have all tested good. there's also 2 jumper blocks; one six position and the other 8 position. I have no idea what the different positions do but they're set different on each board. I'm thinking they might control the clock timing but without a manual that's just a guess.

I'd imagine something that old would have been a fixed frequency for the clock, not something that could be adjusted (maybe even a simple R-C circuit and the capacitor part is starting to fail). Is this an issue that just recently popped up, or has the card shown this problem since the onset.

Here's a link to the cards themselves (though the 6-Pack is a 6-Pack Plus):

I have 4 or 5 complete XT's including this one, plus some various spare boards but this is the only one that keeps the correct date so it would be nice if I could get it to keep the correct time as well.

thanks for the link. I'll check it out.

Strange, you'd think if it didn't know how to incriment the time correctly, that would adversly affect the date too. I'm slightly baffled by this.
