    For a while, My PB G4 has never remember the basic things. Such as Time/Date and Wifi passwords. Not sure why:confused:

    Nothing else is having a issue except for that, is it because my PB G4 doesn't have a battery?(Haven't bought a replacement yet)

    If the PowerBooks does not remember the time and date, it will not remember network passwords. And yes, that's because the PRAM battery is dead.

    Do they have actual batteries or do they have a capacitor that function as a PRAM?
