PL800 System Board Problem?

I have currently been Upgarding the hardware in an PL800 server. It was an old PII 350e server but is now a dual PII 500 Mhz.

During the upgrade I noticed that when I turn the server off and then back on it seems to loose its date and time and start up configuration. I reset the time and config and it runs ok until I switch it off again.

My thoughts are the battery or the system board.

If it is the system board is this board used in any other pl servers as I have other servers not in use but none are pl800's.

The only server with the same system board would be the prosigna 740 in pentium II edition, but try swapping the battery first.
You have a 90% chance that this will solve your problem. Your battery has lasted a while already after all.

Re: PL800 System Board Problem?

Yes... if you are loosing date/time you definately need a battery replacement.

You need to either order one from HP (expensive) or get it from Radio Shack or local computer hardware vendor for MUCH less.

You need a 4.5V alkaline battery for Real-Time Clock (RTC) with a self-adhesive strip and attached cable and connector - 600mA
