Real time clock
Posted on 1998-10-18
I have a customer's PC which gives a Interupt controller fault in the norton diagnostic program.
Interupt Controller : IRQ not available from Real Time Clock.
Setting up win95 results in page fault errors when booting.
After a while win95 comes up anyway and gives an error in the PnP-BIOS-expansion card.
I adviced the customer to change the motherboard or to buy a new one (it's a on 'old' Pentium 100).
I have two questions :
1. Any other suggestion then changing the motherboard ?
2. What does the Interupt Controller do and what is the consequence of not receiving IRQ's from the real time clock ?
