When I restarted the G3 the date was way off so I guess the battery died, could this be the problem and would a new battery solve it.
I bought a new Intel iMac in April and it works great, but now my problem is I just refired up my old Beige G3 running OS 9.2 and it booted up into the login screen and is asking for a password. I never used a password with the machine and if I did when I originally set it up I don't remember what it is. I need to get some files off of it but have no way because the only startup CD I have is 9.0.4 and it does not support the USB cards I have in it. Any suggestions. Thanks
