    I am experiencing a rebooting problem with a P III 450 System. So far I have replaced the ram, the motherboard (Abit BE 6 II), the power supply, the cpu, I have add a UPS and reinstall the win98 OS. I run Micro Scope and it indicated that I have a RTC RAM TEST FAILURE 32 00 20. Number one does RTC = Real Time Clock and two if so how do I correct a Real Time Clock failure, three are there any other things that I should check out.

    Well Real Time Clock is part of the motherboard. You said you already replaced that.

    Since it says RTC RAM... I am guessing that it means it had trouble with a timing test loop in the RAM chips. But you said you replaced the RAM too.

    So, personally, I would ignore that error and assume that the error is due to the program not working correctly on your system.

    Try this one: http://www.simmtester.com/PAGE/products/doc/docinfo.asp

    It's free and works very well. Let it run overnight - if there are no fails, and the machine doesn't reboot, I would say the RAM and power supply are ok.

    What are these rebooting issues anyway? How often? What OS?
