Is it a software issue or a bios battery issue? Do macs have bios batteries? are they replacable?

Help appreciated

It's called the PRAM battery in the world of Apple (as in parameter RAM). Yeah, it's basically the same as a BIOS battery!

They're usually 3.6V lithium cells that look like a half height AA battery on G3 era machines. Not too hard to find ...

Instructions can be found here ...
