AwardBIOS Compliance Warning

Recommended Posts

Most older PCs even if not Y2K compliant can be manualy set to 2000 and will run fine from then on. If you have a late 486 or early Pentium <=130MHZ you may have an AwardBios manufactured between Sept. 26, 94 - Apr. 19, 95 0r Oct 15-23, 96. These BIOS only work with years 94-99 and will come up with a bogus date everytime they are rebooted. Phoenix who now owns Award has a fix for this you can down load. Go to www.award.com/year2000 and click on Phoenix PC Y2000 TEST/FIX Utility. If you choose not to fix the problem you could pass the computer on to your great grandchildren and it will work fine in the years 2094-2099.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
