    Hi there

    I have a G4 Quicksilver tower and everytime I turn it on at the moment the date and time has re-set itself to 01 01 1970.

    Can anyone please confirm if this is a battery issue and if so where do I purchase replacement battaries and how diifficult is to replace the battery in these towers?

    If the problem is something else can anyone identify what that may be?

    All help would be appreciated?

    I think on these models it was just a large watch battery looking thing. Open the case and look at the board. Then bring it to radio shack or equivalent and match it up. Should be less and $5

    You can find the Apple part number for the battery here. Yours looks to be 922-4028.
