#329888 - 12/16/0704:09 PMTrying to get an old iMac working....
Does anyone know of a place I can buy a PRAM battery for an iMac 600MHz? Radio Shack used to carry them, but I couldn't find them listed on their site last time I searched. I left this old iMac down in my basement, unplugged, for a long time because of the PRAM battery being dead and problems with the date and time causing issues. I had an old battery that I'd taken out of an iMac 400MHz, but that also seems to be dead. The date keeps going back to 1903 (or something), despite me telling it to use Apple's network time server. I wanted to keep this old iMac running, as a backup, and because I love it, but where can I find a PRAM battery for it? <br><br><br><br><br>

You won't believe it, or maybe you will, but I just found not one, but two batteries for my iMac on eBay. They were manufactured this year, so they should be fine. Gotta love the Internet! All for under $13.00, including shipping and handling. And to think that I paid just under $12.00 for ONE battery from Radio Shack five years ago! <br><br>
