Has any one replaced the rechargeable battery on a 486 motherboard with the triple AA battery holder?
I have, and run into the following problem.
After about 2 months, on off usage of the computer I get a CMOS battery error on boot.
Testing with my multimeter showed 0 volts across the pack. Removed the batteries and tested individually.
1.xx volts on 1
0.77 volts on the next,
-1.xx volts on the last. It had reverse polarity.
My only guess is that perhaps the charging current is messing with the pack or something. So I have bought some Diodes to stop the reverse charge current.
Anyone had similar problems?
Non capisco tutte queste minacce.
