    My Early 08's 8600 failed recently (was still working but I got like 10fps on games and it failed the test) so I had it replaced at a few apple stores (an ordeal and frustration in and of itself).

    Anyways I was wondering if I need to do anything since the logic board has been replaced. Is a format necessary (for optimization and speed and for compatibility)? When I turned on my computer it gave me a warning about my clock being set to March 20, 2000 and a Y2K compatibility error. Should I be worried?

    All in all everything seems to be OK - unfortunately since my MAC addy changed I can't access Time Machine backups anymore and have to start a new backup :(

    Any help would be appreciated!

    im having the sample problem too :(

    its due to the fact the time machine backup is linked to the logic board MAC address, thus after the repair the address has changed, ive searched to find an easy way to do it before wiping my backups.
