Presario 7360 - slow clock by Befuddled person
Preasrio 7360, running Win98SE, loses time. I have replaced the CMOS battery, scanned with AdAware, SpyBot and run anti-virus. Diagnostics finds nothing wrong. The PC operates just fine but the slow clock is a concern. Is this an indication that the PC is dying? Any suggestions?
