progressive clock time delay workup and fix

Q: progressive clock time delay workup and fix

For windows 7 professional what can be checked besides sfc /scannow to work up software problems with the right lower hand corner clock time?

This notebook computer is new and was placed into use on 9/20/2015. It has had problems with keeping time. With windows 7 professional when the computer is in use or idle but not yet hybernating or in sleep the right lower hand corner clock would
display inaccurate time. The time was checked by using the web site www.time.is which displays the amount of time behind or ahead. The notebook after an updated time with time.windows or nist.gov or nw.nist.gov o a-nist.gov or b-nist.gov would
display exact time. Then as the notebook was used the time would increase in the delay to a little over one minute and then somehow reset to approximately 0.6 seconds delay and then progressively delay again and again.
HP offered to replace the CMOS RTC battery and the motherboard. I had them just replace the CMOS RTC battery. The notebook had no change after the replaced battery. The date has never been incorrect. The time has always progressively
delayed and then reset to a smaller delay with windows 7 professional.
When the replacement battery did not alter the behavior of the clock time delay HP had me check another operating system. They had me use a utility on an external flash drive that formated it and installed the utility. Then they had me download
and install Ubuntu. Then the notebook was turned off and when restarted the computer was booted from the external flash drive. With a 12 hour check the right lower hand clock time was never delayed. With Ubuntu the clock time was frequently
ahead and almost always less than 10 seconds ahead.

HP then offered to replace the motherboard and the Intel chip. With the CMOS RTC battery replacement followed by the motherboard and Intel chip replacements there is still time delay. This time though it is progressive without a maximum delay
and has not yet reset. The time delay at this moment is 3 minutes and 55.5 seconds.

Using the software speedfan the temperature of parts or the motherboard/chip/graphics card are displayed. Prior to the hardware replacement several of the temperatures (ACPI) were displaying 85 degrees C or 185 degrees F. One of the speedfan
sensors now displays 127 degrees C or 261 degrees F. This seems impossible as it would likely melt the metals and or plastics of the notebook.

Everyone is puzzled as to what is the root cause of the progressive time delay after multiple component hardware replacements.

What can be done further to evaluate windows 7 professional for any flaw or corruption when sfc / scannow displays that it did not find any integrity violations?
What can be done further to evaluate any hardware or hardware/software interactions that may find the source of the incorrect time?

Well, I wish I could remember everything I had just written in this box, but it's gone now.

I had a stand alone video editor built. (See specs ) The first operation BSOD'd in about 4 hours, but didn't do it for quite some time after that. Then it started dropping the video, then it started crashing IE on opening, then it started crashing the editing programs. I searched this and other forums and eventually replaced the EVGA GT 650. That corrected the video drop and even the crashes for a while. Then the crashes began in earnest, escalating until the BSOD's joined in the fray. Since windows does not have the program needed to read their own dump files, and all other attempts at correcting failed, I did a "repair install" from the disk. That worked for a while, but the issue progressed in much the same manner as before. I finally did a reformat, which performed nearly identical to the initial operation, with a 4 hour onset of a BSOD, and then nothing. That is until the programs started crashing and the BSOD's appeared again. I then had the guru wipe the drive completely and reformat. The only difference in performance has been that it didn't blue screen after 4 hours. It did however crash IE on start-up, as well as the editing program.

At no time has this machine ever run fast. I have an XP Home machine next to it that would run circles around it in terms of video editing, both machines running Corel Video Studio ProX4. I have since upgraded to ProX6, which is a... Read more

Hello and welcome Jeff mate that build thing looks suspect to me but I am no expert. I did see in the msinfo that you have two problem devices one is that the printer is disabled and the other is a missing driver.

I think this might be worth asking in the Windows installation and activation section as there are a few who are real quick with seeing anything wrong with the activation and that build like I said looks wrong at least I have never seen anything like that before.

Hi there! I'm running windows xp home on an hp pavilion a400n, although I'm not sure that matters. I also use Firefox as my default browser.

I've downloaded a Google gadget, the calendar, to my desktop. I use the google calendar as my primary appointment book.

The problem is that the time in my calendar gadget and the time in my actual calendar aren't matching. I enter an appointment into my calendar, and then refresh my calendar gadget to see the updates, and the times on the gadget are on hour earlier than the actual calendar.

In trying to figure out what's happening, I also noticed that the timestamps on my messages, incoming and outgoing, are the same time frame off. When a message comes in or goes out, it immediately shows that it's an hour old.

I went in and made sure the operating system clock and the google gadget clock are on the same time and showing the same DST settings. But I'm still having the same problem.

Is there another clock setting I'm missing?

Help, please!

I have a 4 year old computer that runs perfectly, except when I turn it off at night and then back on the next day, I loose a few hours on the time date at bottom of screen. I ajust each time I use it but the same thing happens each time I turn it off. Could it be the clock battery or ? My operating system is Windows XP Home
Thanks Lc
 

A:Windows XP time/date clock looses time after shut down.

Welcome to TSG...A bad CMOS battery will cause your machine to lose time. If the system is four years old, you're eligible for that issue...also, if the system has spent any lengthy amount of time (weeks or more) unplugged from AC power, it's more likely to happen.

Next reboot (after leaving it overnight), enter BIOS (setup) and see if the time there is slipping as well.

The battery itself (if that's what's bad) is cheap to replace...less than five bucks.

Please give us some specs on the hardware-make, model, etc.-and we can help you with battery replacement instructions.

The computer clock in my Windows 7 b7100 installation has been gaining about 30 seconds per day. I have tired setting the clock in Win7 to synchronize with time.windows.com and 4 different government servers. But with each set individually, the system clock never seems to be updated, and gains time every day.

In the past few weeks I've tried going to this registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\w32time\TimeProviders\NtpClient

And changing the default value of 604800 for the DWORD 'SpecialPollInterval' to 86400 (1 day) and 3600 (1 hour). But the system never synchronized the time after waiting 1 day and 1 hour respectively. I have to do it manually every day with Win7's 'Date and Time' > 'Interent Time' > Change Settings' > 'Update Now'.

This same system has never had any problem with synchronizing time with installations of Windows XP and Windows Vista in the past.

Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?

Thanx

Dear all,

I have a couple of annoying time delay problems with my XP machine as follows:

1. Even though I have 2MB connection my machine takes a while to load up web pages. It seems to wait for about 5-10 secs before doing anything and then loads up really quickly. Once I am within a website it navigates to other pages very quickly but if I want to go to a different web site I get the same delay.

2. When navigating using My Computer I get a huge time delay when trying to do an action such as Copy or rename i.e if I right click on a file it takes about a minute for the dialog box to come up. If however I disconnect my internet connection there is no delay at all?

I am running the same connection on my laptop which is Windows ME without any problem?

Any ideas?!!!

Hello. My computer has 4 GB of RAM, Duo Core 5500 2.7 MHZ CPU. I have a 1GB 9500 GT Nvidia, Windows Vista. I play a game called Darkfall Online, and I am having an input device delay time. When I move my mouse in the game window, there is about a half second delay on my computer from when I move my mouse to when the in-game character reacts to it. Also, when I type, or do any kind of input in the game; there is the same half second delay time. The issue is not ping. When I run the game, it only consumes up to 30% of my CPU and 2 GB of RAM.

This issue does not occur outside of Darkfall, but does in some other games. When I crank the settings of the graphics up to the maximum, there is a half-second delay. When I turn the setting to minimum, there is the same half-second delay.

I cannot begin to describe how annoying this is. My computer is brand new, and the drivers are up to date according to the Vista Device Manager scans. Also, I have even updated the Graphics card driver from the manufacturers website. . I have an older computer with worse equipment on Vista, I have had it for years; and the delay does not occur on it.

I have tried changing mouses, and everything I can think of and the issue on the computer described originally is still not running properly in game!

Now, I am willing to provide any necessary information that I have not included here. I really want this resolved, but it really is a hard problem to find a fix to.

I like using autohide for the Taskbar, but it can sometimes be annoying when using a full-screen program in that when you approach the bottom of the screen the Taskbar pops up over the program you're using. What I'd like is a registry entry where I can either add a delay time so that the Taskbar only appears after hovering the mouse over it for 5 seconds or so, or to make it so that the Taskbar doesn't appear at all unless I use the "WIN + t" key combination. I can find all sorts of tweaks and 3rd party programs that add all sorts of functionality to the Taskbar, but none that do this.

I like having my monitor power off soon after activity stops. Currently, I have it powering off after 2 minutes of inactivity. I am also very big on locking my PC when I step away. So, I also have the screen saver kick in after 2 minutes. (Of course, I never even see a screen saver because the monitor is off. And, in fact, my screen saver is set to "None". So this setting essentially means the PC is set to lock after 2 minutes.)

However, what often happens is that I'm sitting at the PC, and the monitor turns off, but I don't want it to lock. I move the mouse, and it's locked--even if I intervened within a second or two.

With Windows XP, I used to be able to use the ScreenSaverGracePeriod registry value to work around this. I've tried this with my Windows 8 system, but it doesn't work. I have tried using ScreenSaverGracePeriod as both REG_SZ and as DWORD.

Is there any way to delay the PC from locking after the monitor powers off by just a few seconds? I know I can have the monitor power off after 2 minutes but set the screen saver to 3 minutes, but I'd like to reduce the delay to a matter of seconds, if that is possible.

Hello Crosspatch,

I suppose one way would be to disable screen saver password protection to prevent it from basically locking the PC and asking for a password when you resume from screen saver.

The only drawback is that you would then need to lock the PC when you do want it to be password protected when unlocking. If you like, the desktop context menu added by either tutorial below can help make it easier to lock the PC.

I can't figure out why I have such a delay in my computer being able to connect. Once I start up, the white bars will show instantly, sometimes with the yellow mark in them, sometimes not. Even if the white bars show up instantly I still cannot connect. It takes like 30 to 60 seconds until I can. I will try the Diagnose feature and it will say no problems, however I still can't connect.
If I look at the " Show me all my device's on my network" it will show a picture of my computer~Router~Web. There is a red line between the Router and the Web showing it is not connected. Which to me means that my router and computer are connected, but something else is not. Something is holding up my connection time and I can't figure it out

Windows XP has a delay time of a few seconds when deleting an in-use file. (Example: when an mp3 file is open and you delete that file, Windows XP will say that it is deleting the file for about 3 seconds, then says that it cannot delete the file, since the file is open).

I want to set the settings in Windows 8 to do exactly the same thing. Windows 8's default setting is to immediately state that the mp3 file is in use and cannot delete it. I want Windows 8 to wait for 3 seconds until it states that it cannot delete it.

Reason why I need this option is that I delete the file first, then I change the mp3 file so it is no longer in use.
That's the only order of doing this thing that I do.

Your help would be much appreciated. Thank you so much.

Every time I install Windows 7 X64 (or X86) from USB I get two unexplainable delays for no apparent reason and I wondered if this was normal or just my system?

OK, I boot up and the files are copied from the USB to the PC. Fine. Then there's at least a 5 minute delay before the language choice screen appears! Is that a normal delay time?

After choosing that, you get the 'Setup is starting' screen for yet another 5 minutes before the EULA licence appears and you choose what/where or whether you want to repair the PC screens. Again, is that the normal delay?

10 minutes of sitting around waiting for the screen to appear where you can repair/re-install the computer just seems ridiculous.

Thereafter, it only takes 15-20 minutes to do a completely fresh install, so that's fine too.

Anyone else experiencing these delays?

Delay Chkdsk start up time at OS Boot | Windows 8 & 8.1
(Or Disable Altogether)


Previous to Windows 8 if Chkdsk needed to run without prompt the user had the ability to cancel if so desired.
Since Windows 8, the user input has been removed.

At the least, you can change the delay setting as follows:
Modify DWORD "AutoChkTimeout"

IMAGE ONE:
1. Open Regedit:
One way to open regedit is to hit the Winkey+S and type regedit, hit enter when you see it appear.

2. Navigate to the following registry key:


Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager


3. Click on the folder "Session Manager"

4. In the right hand pane you will see registry values. Right click on the value "AutoChkTimeout" and select "Modify" (See image one)
If the value is missing, create it (See image two)

5. Change the "Value data:" to the desired delay time of your choice.
e.x. Changing the value to 10, will delay the Chkdsk start time by 10 seconds.
Click OK, close the registry.
Finished.
Create DWORD "AutoChkTimeout"

IMAGE TWO:

If the registry value "AutoChkTimeout" is not present:
Right click on an empty space in the right hand pain (in folder "Session Manager")

Select "New"
Select "DWORD (32-Bit) Value
Name it "AutoChkTimeout" (No Quotation Marks "")
Follow step 4. above.

Hi,
I have reinstall my windows XP and also reinstall my motherboard drivers.But the problem is when i go to 'Device Manager',I saw a yellow '?' under 'Real Time Clock'.I do not know what it is and why is there a question mark on it.Is it becaue I have installed the wrong motherboard drivers?I have received replies from other forum and they told me to install Retro chipset VIA 4in1 drivers for my system.Perhaps I can give you information of my system and hope you can advice if I have installed the correct drivers for my motherboard.
My computer brand Name: VIA Technologies
Motherboard Vendor : VTech
Motherboard Model : 2A6LGV3G
Chipset Model : VIA VT82C693 Apollo Pro Plus Chipset
System Memory : 256 MB(SDRAM)
BIOS Model : Award Modular Bios v4.51PG
BIOS Vendor : Award Software Inc.
CPU Type : Intel Pentium IIIE,800 MHz(6x133)
Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Pro Service Pack2
OS Platform/Version : NT Platform Version 5.1(Build2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519)

I hope the above information is sufficient.Looking forward to hearing from you soon.Thank you for your assistance.
 

A:Real Time Clock

Dont you have a CD with the correct drivers for your mainboard? if not you'd be best going to the VIA website and looking up the drivers for your model of mainboard, then you'd be assured to get the right ones, as by what you have described I'd say you have the wrong ones currently installed.

Where did you get the drives from that you are currently using?

My Father has a 2 years old Acer Aspire SA80 the clock seems to keep changing time - its wrong most of the time...

he has just read in Computer Active that the same happened to another user with same PC and he changed the battery (old one out and new one in) and fired it up and he was away...

now what's got me is wont the BIOS clear if the battery is removed ?
or does the CMOS re-write the BIOS upon 1st execution??? I dunno just guessing>?

do you think my Dad should also change the battery? (along with the HSF+arctic5 paste Iam doing later in year)

any advice appreciated

thanks
 

A:Time/Clock Problems

Almost certainly is the battery as you read.

Changing it is the only way to keep the time from changing and keep the system running smoothly and settings lost in BIOS wont be irreversable and even without changing them the system should boot normally.

About two weeks ago my clock just started to loose time. It will loose about 15 minutes a day. Although the scheduled tasks are still activating on time. I tried changing the battery but it didn't help.
I'm running win98 (verson 4.10.1998) a K/6-2 amd processor on an acer mother board with 64 mb of sdram.
I would appreciate any suggestions that you can give me.
 

A:clock looses time

This is a very common problem. It is a software issue.

You can test this, to be sure, by setting the clock and then booting to floppy. Now let it sit at the A prompt all day (obviously not on a day when you need your computer) and then type TIME to check the time. It should be ok.

If it is, we now know the problem is a program you are running.

You can try to pin the program down using MSCONFIG (at Start, Run, type in MSCONFIG) - disable all startup items and reboot. See if the clock starts working ok. If so, go back and turn things on one or two at a time until you find the bad one.

Hi erichan,

What hardware, i.e. processor, motherboard, etc. do you have?

If you do not know, you can download Everest Home (freeware) from:
http://www.lavalys.com in order to find out in the Quick or Full Reports.

I assume the 'real time clock' may be a feature of the motherboard? Is that correct? If so, any driver would need to be downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer website which Everest will denote in its report.

I looked in my device manager listing, and do not have a 'real time clock' device listed, so it must be either an additional piece of hardware or as I assumed above a feature of your motherboard. If it is related to another piece of hardware, then that manufacturer's website should have the driver for download available.

Do the Everest download/install/run before the following:

One thing you can do is to delete the driver for the 'real time clock' in your device manager, reboot to let the system rediscover the new hardware, and load a default driver for it with its PnP.

-- Tom

Hi j.o'neill,
It sounds like your battery is running low. The battery is your CMOS battery. To replace this go into setup and write down your CMOS settimgs. Then replace the battery on the motherboard if it is visible. Have the new battery ready because sometimes you can remove the old and put in the new to where you wont lose your settings

Hopefully this is an easy question----

I woke up yesterday, turned on the computer and the little clock in the lower right corner of the screen is now on 24hr/military time. Right now, it's 17:58.....

I'm using XP on a laptop that's about 4 years old. I have clicked on box for "Date and Time Properties," and don't see where this can be changed. Odd though---when I do open that up, it gives me the right time...so right now below the analog clock it says 6:00pm.

For some reason, just the display is showing up like this. Although if I do open up a document or something with a time-stamp on it, it will also be in 24HR mode.

I have restarted the computer, to no avail. And I have run a malware scan and a hijack thing, but nothing seems to be catching this.


I can't even think of what I could have possibly clicked or touched. I wasn't fidgeting with the clock at all.


Many thanks for any help.

A:Clock Losing Time

If it is CMOS, it'll be your battery. If you're brave enough to go fishing around in there, remove the little disc shaped battery and get an exact replacement. When you've fitted it, you will need to reset the system date and time and will also have lost any other non-standard BIOS settings so it's best to "load failsafe defaults" before saving to exit BIOS.

Yesterday I noticed a computer i'm borrowing's clock was a few seconds ahead of time.gov. The internet time was set to time-b.nist.gov, but I changed it to time.windows.com. Because that didn't connect I changed it back to time-b.nist.gov and it looked fine when I checked time.gov again it looked fine.

Today when I woke up i synched it back with time-b.nist.gov when I checked time.gov this morning and my clock was 5 seconds ahead. I reset the synchro and it looked fine again. Then an hour later it was ahead of the website again. I then watched time.gov (and refreshed it) all this morning and noticed that no matter what I did the clock was always ahead of time.gov website. I then synched with time.nist.gov and that went out of sync, this time behind the time.gov website. I resynched to time-b.nist.gov and its now roughly 3 seconds behind the website.

Is everyone else unsynchronized with time.gov? should I worry about 3-15 seconds ahead/behind that website? Why is my clock behind now when before when it wasn't synchronized with time.gov, it was ahead of it? would resynchronizing the clock multiple times in a day permanently mess up the Windows clock? The computer's clock is 3 seconds behind USNO's website, too, so its not just time.gov. I'm very concerned.

One of the first symptoms of a CMOS battery going out is the system clock will not keep accurate time. I suggest you replace the battery. Be aware that when you do so, your BIOS Settings will revert to the default settings. So if you have changed any settings in your BIOS, record them so you can set them back after you change the battery.

Hi, my computer clock display keeps changing the hour, (not the minutes) sometime about 6 hours behind, I reset to correct time, but it changes again on computer switch on. Its a one year old computer so internal battery should be fine.

Also and this is more annoying, in the past (2 months ago) my upload internet speed became very slow, but now its doing the opposite, as the download speed is now going haywire, and has gone from 6 down to under 2. This means say a video download slows down and stalls at 5% of download.

I thought at first someone was leetching onto my wireless modem, but it is scrambled signal requiring a code to work (Wireless Thompson TG580). I am only using hardwired from modem/telephone, and not wireless.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I use Windows Explorer heavily. I am constantly moving files and batches of files from one folder to another. I have one very annoying problem with this but I bet there is a way to fix it.

Here's what I do - I highlight several files in the right pane, I hold down the right-mouse-button over the selected files, I drag them over to a folder in the left pane, and then the annoyance happens. If I don't drop those files immediately into that folder, the entire list of sub-folders pops open as if I hit the little plus to the left of the folder. What makes this a major annoyance is that the folder I wanted to move into has now changed its position in the left pane because the sub-folders popped open.

Now, sometimes I desperately need the sub-folder list to open because I forgot to find the folder I needed before moving the files. It is a nice feature. However, if only I could increase the delay-time. I'd like to give myself triple the time to drop the files into the folder before the sub-folder list opens. There has to be a registry tweak for this. Anyone have any ideas?

ps - I don't think the MenuShowDelay value found under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop has any effect on this because I have tried it.Thanks for your time and courtesy!

Hence, within 5 second, the USB device will be detected.
Then it have to check if that device did connected to USB port-2 before, it can be used immediately.
If it check as the device is never connected to the USB port-2, it then have to find the USB driver to install and saved, remembered.

Then again, for 90 seconds, it may not matter much, as just turn on the computer before, say, to take a bath first.

Each day, the first time I opening 'any' existing Microsoft Works Word Processor file that I have, such as ones I have for phone numbers, addresses, etc., I have to wait about 45 seconds for the file to open. And while I'm waiting, I can't do anything else on the computer. Any of those files I open the rest of the day, open immediately. It's just the first time each day. Any solutions?

A:Delay in opening any Microsoft Works Word file 1st time each day..

Nobody????????????????? else has this problem. Really? All I have to do is google it and get a dozen items show up, all with no solutions from Microsoft whatsoever.

Good evening, eveyone.

I have a VIRUS ALERT! message next to my time clock which has been changed to military time. I ran symantec norton antivirus, windows defender and also spybot, none of which got rid of the message or changed my time clock back. When I go to my computer, I do not see any of my drives either. Please help me to fix this. I've been working on it for two days and I'm getting frustrated.

Thank you in advance.

Could be a battery going bad on the motherboard. Try looking at your motherboard manual and seeing if you can replace the battery.

I have had to do two complete system recoveries because there have been problems with the clock and then nothing works!
I have a Toshiba 1800 laptop using ME.
The first time both the time and the date were wrong, the second time the time and day/month were correct but the year was 2006, both times I put them right and shortly after the whole thing went pear shaped.
I would have expected errors/warnings if the battery was getting low - none but everything stopped working.
Can anyone throw any light on Real Time Clock batteries please?

Sounds like the power has run out. just leave the laptop switched on for a couple of hours and see if that helps.

I have a Dell computer. In the last couple of days I've noticed my clock will not keep the correct time. My computer is always on. I've also had problems when I do shut my computer off and unplug the power supply cord that when I boot it up it sometime defaults to the year 2002. I guess I'm not too concerned about that, I'm more concerned why all of a sudden it doesn't keep the correct time. Someone had told me that my motherboard could be causing the problem. So they said that ruled out the CMOS battery. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks much!

I have a brand new custom built computer, pretty good hardware, and i have had this problem with the timer being laggy, ie. The clock runs slow, but resets itself to the correct time on reboot, (the time in bios does not lag, it is fine) when 15 seconds pass on my computer, it has been 1 minute 15 seconds on my stopwatch.

so my computers time is about 1/5 of the normal time, and the issue isn't just with the clock, with any timers, ie, animations, any counters, for example on my websites i build if i have a timeout for like 5 seconds, it will take 25 seconds, so it's something to do with the windows timer, i have seen other people with the same problem but i haven't found any solutions.

*I have the newest bios for my motherboard
------
My computer specs are:
*ASUS M4A785-M
*1TB hitachi 7200rpm
*4gb DDR2 corsair Ram
*AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4Ghz
*GeForce DDR5 GTX 480

Update: 60 seconds on my computer took 4 minutes 58 seconds on my stop watch.

A:Windows 7 64bit clock/time lag

This seems to be very common with AMD Phenom running on Asus MB's with 64 bit OS. Some have solved it by turning off C1E in BIOS. Some have had luck flashing the BIOS to a newer version if available. Some have even just switched to another time server.

I'd start with switching the time server. Then try turning C1E off. If that does it, see if you have the latest BIOS. If there is an update, you can then try C1E again. Good luck. A Guy

I have a four year old HCL desktop with Pentium dual core 2.66 Ghz, 80 GB HDD, 768 MB RAM, Windows XP Professional SP3 OS & Guardian 2009 registered antivirus. Few days back I noticed that the time shown in the system tray was lagging behind. I set the correct time but next day it was again running slow although the date was correct. I changed the the mother board battery & adjusted the time in the BIOS but the time is still running behind when ever I start the system, though the date is correct. The technician says that my BIOS needs to be updated to get over this problem. Is it true? I have read in CHIP that updating of BIOS is a daunting task & the mother board can be damaged & even my technician has said so. Will it rectify my problem.

Thanks

A:Computer clock losing time!

Hi shaz12,

It sounds like your regional settings might be off, since it appears to be a 5-hour time difference, although since you didn't include a.m. and p.m., I'm not quite sure. If you double-click on your clock in the lower right-hand corner of the screen and open it up, click on the Time Zone tab, is it set correctly for where you live? If not, use the drop-down menu to find your setting.

Does that help?

Check in your regional settings make sure everything is correct for your area in there - Region and Language - Change
Have a look at these posts regarding time - Time Zone - Change
Date and Time - Change

A system file scan wouldn't hurt either - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Have you altered any services or changed the internet time sync configuration?

My friend is having an issue with a new Compaq laptop that he has. I don't know all the specs but it's running WinXP and it's relatively new.
The issue is that the system tray clock doesn't keep time. It resets or it just loses time or acts crazy. There don't seem to be any other performance issues or problems, just this clock. Any ideas what it could be?
I know how to sync it but I'd rather know what the problem was.
Thanks.
