I am using an old computer running Windows 98 2nd edition. I bought it in 1997. It has only 32 mb of memory, but it gets the job done.
For about a year now, (maybe more), I have been getting a CMOS checksum error every time I start the computer. It tells me to hit the F1 key, and then loads the default settings. I then have to reset my clock because it gets reset to midnight Jan. 1997. Besides getting a new computer, does anyone have any advise? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
P.S. I would love to add some memory to this dinosaur, but have got some sketchy advise on what type I need. Best Buy wanted an amount of money that I could have bought a new computer with. Any suggestions?
