Most people who own retro motherboards will eventually run into those pesky Dallas RTC modules.
When the internal battery dies, there are basically two ways to fix it.
1. Replace the RTC module
2. Cut it open and add a CR2032 battery
I just wanted to hear people's opinions on this. What do you think is the best solution? Personally, I'm inclined to just replace the whole RTC module. Seems like the most elegant solution to me. But some might consider that to just be a temporary fix, seeing as the new one will eventually die as well.
So, which method do you prefer?
WinXP : PIII 1.4GHz, 512MB RAM, 73GB SCSI HDD, Matrox Parhelia, SB Audigy 2.
Win98se : K6-3+ 500MHz, 256MB RAM, 80GB HDD, Matrox Millennium G400 MAX, Voodoo 2, SW1000XG.
DOS6.22 : Intel DX4, 64MB RAM, 1.6GB HDD, Diamond Stealth64 DRAM, GUS 1MB, SB16.
