View Full Version : y2k Checks / Cloktest



07-02-1999, 05:03 PM
I'm checking my computer for Y2K. I have Win 95 and a 686 P166 computer.
In Control Panel/Date.Time I have set the date to near midnight 31 Dec 1999 and watched it change successfully to Jan 1 2000. Also, I've set the date to 29 Feb 2000 and seen it change to 1 March.
As a belt-and-braces I decided to run the Cloktest software recommended in the magazine.
It passed all the tests except the RTC which it failed. The 'retention' test passed OK.
Does this mean that, at worst?, I may need to reset the date/time on Jan1 2000?

Thanks

Alex
