vrf More on the time zone question

Question asked by WDrago on Jan 10, 2002
Barrie,

How old is the machine in question? Is it running any drivers to fix y2k
problems? I've had problems like yours that were caused when a program reads
the RTC directly instead of getting the current time from the operating
system.
