A few weeks ago, my AST serial port (and the rest of the card) failed (IBM XT). I successfully got an Everex card to work and my serial port is fine again. But.... The AST card had a clock function on it that retained the time and date on it. No biggy, but I liked it. Now I have to enter the date and time every time the machine is started. I searched for a new AST car but could not find one. I do not remember the names of other cards that had a clock function on it. The Everex card I'm currently using has the board for a clock but no chips or battery holder. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
Mike

Lots of IBM PC, XT, AT info at www.minuszerodegrees.net
There, you will see a link named 'RTC Programs'.
That link will show a page that will reveal some cards that contain clock functionality.
