Make sure and set your time zone correctly. If you change your time and your time zone is incorrect when connect to the internet it will synchronize the time back to what ever time zone you have set.

To check double click on the time in the lower right hand corner and the second tab at the top will be time zone.

A:System clock wrong

what kind of computer? laptop or pc? and when you say wrong time, too fast or too slow?

my laptop is fairly old, and my clock is unable too keep the time, constantly too slow.

I don't know too much, but I've been told that it's because my battery is old. Plus, I don't keep it charged very often.

Just a suggestion.

So I am having a weird issue with the time on my computer, I have years of experience with computers and have never experienced this. I am running Windows 8 Professional, the full version. I built a brand new computer 3 weeks ago, and this started happening about 3 days ago. Everytime I come back to my computer the time is off by a few hours... Even if the computer is on the entire day, the time still changes, even when im on it. I have tried to google and have found no solutions. I see that a dead cmos battery could be the problem, but I don't think it is the problem because the clock changes even when the computer is on. If im understanding properly, the battery holds the time when the computer is off, so if this was my issue, the time would always be right when im on the computer. Also the motherboard is brand new, as ive stated , i just built this computer.. I have no idea what is causing my time to constantly change so any help fixing this would be great.... My time zone is set properly, as well as my daylight saving times settings.. I am wondering if this is a bug with windows 8 or what... Thank you in advance for anyone who can help!!

Also I am new here so sorry if this is in the wrong place.

A:Clock Constantly Wrong

Did you correctly set your timezone? From what I know, windows automatically checks with MS servers to set the clock, so if you accidentally set the incorrect timezone, then your clock will constantly be set a few hours off.

I have a computer that is on a domain that the clock consistently changes every couple hours and changes by 2 hours. The Time Zone is correct, and the server time is always correct. How can I fix this? Thanks

A:Clock on Computer wrong/Domain

well on your side of things, you could check your regional settings and date/time settings in the control panel just to be sure. You can also check your BIOS to make sure the date and time are set correctly. If it's just your computer on the network then chances are, its something on your computer. If the whole domain is noticing the same problem, then there is an NTP (Network Time Protocol) problem with your internal server.

On a side not, a bad CMOS battery may be another reason as to why your time may be off sync.

The clock on my PC is right, but in Outlook it is wrong, I changed from Outlook Express. The time is wrong on incoming emails. I've triple checked the PC clock and triple checked the Outlook clock settings; both are correct. Outbound emails show the correct time, but incoming are 1 hour late on the displayed time. I've been to the MS website and checked everything. Also, under PC clock settings/internet time gives me an error msg when I try to synch the time with internet time as well . It's driving me NUTS

I hope someone can help. I can't really say if it's from switching from OE to O, or from the early daylights saving time...I'm guessing the latter.

The other problem I'm having with Outlook is importing emails. I have Comcast and those emails transmit fine; sending and receiving. But, my job uses FuseMail for webmail, which imports into Outlook fine, but when I try to respond to work emails in Outlook, it will not send the emails.

I have scheduled Windows Defender to run a scan every day at 2 AM. The clock at the bottom of my computer shows the correct actual time. However, Windows Defender does not run at 2 Am but often at random times during the day (such as 3 PM; 5 PM).
Does Defender have its own internal clock? How do I set it for the correct actual time?

Two years ago I've bought this XPS and I was doing fine, until lately.
1. The BIOS clock time is wrong.
2. Moreover, when the system (linux 14.04) restarts (or I turn it on again immediately after a shutdown), the leds turn on for 2 seconds, then the pc shuts down.At that point, it takes various (up to 10, 15) attempts to work it again.
Could the two issues be related?
Shall I have to change the CMOS battery?
Any suggestion about battery type, do's and don'ts?
Thanks a lot.

A:XPS 13 wrong clock time and fails to reboot

Hello Nice to hear from you. We mean,
at Dell we don't sell the CMOS battery as a separate part, it always goes with the motherboard. Of course CMOS battery can be removed from the motherboard.
What we meant by locally is to check at a local computer shop for the CMOS battery. If you have to buy from Dell, you have to purchase the motherboard as we don't sell CMOS separately. hope you got my point.
Updating the BIOS is for the wrong clock time issue , as the settings are stored in BIOS (as we mentioned it may or may not work). We are suspecting motherboard to be the issue keeping both the issues in mind, but you can first give it a try by replacing only cmos battery, if still the same then consider replacing the motherboard. regards

My laptop (Windows 7 Home, 64 bit) crashed the other night, and ever since the clock isn't working properly anymore. On reboot it reverts to a previous time, and I have to reset it. I do so by synching to internet time. It seemed to be working once I reset it, but yesterday it lost a couple of hours over night, or reset at some point without my noticing, even though I did not reboot.

I thought maybe the clock sets back to the time when I switched the computer off, or maybe the time I last manually synched to internet time, but I've not been able to figure out a clear pattern of what time it reverts back to on reboot.

I never realized how disruptive it is not to have a working clock on the computer. I couldn't get into my email before I realized it was off, because the site interpreted me as coming from the future. And I set reminders in my computer calender that depend on the computer clock.

I would appreciate any insight into how I might fix this. Thanks so much.

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and have a problem which it seems many others have experienced...

Everytime I start my computer, the clock on the lower right hand corner of the desktop is wrong.

If I re-synchronize it, it remains correct until I turn off the computer.

I'm running Windows 8.1 and have an Asus Z97-A motherboard.

When I go into BIOS, the clock doesn't seem to be advancing (I'm guessing that the time on the BIOS clock should show advancing seconds).

When I searched for a solution online, I read lots of "fixes" but I don't know what the definitive fix would be. I'm a relative novice when it comes to BIOS, UEFI, etc., so I don't want to screw things up. My computer seems to be working ok, other than the time issue.

One thing I read online was to update the firmware to the most current version. I'm confused as to how to do this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Okay, so I am starting this thread here seeing as how the topic of the old one no longer applies to this situation. I jumped ahead of myself trying to overclock this CPU which made me question the frequencies and voltages which are supposed to be set automatically by the motherboard. I am having a tough time understanding all this. I will post links to the exact parts I am using so whoever is keen enough to try to help will know what we're dealing with.

Motherboard: MSI A88X-G45 Gaming
CPU: AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1 GHz (4.4 Turbo) Black Edition
RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline DDR3 2133 MHz PC3 17000 1.6V

CPU-Z Screenshots


After doing some reading in regards to overclocking, I have found out some details which are totally incorrect in my case. For starters, the FSB to DRAM Frequency Ratio, from what I read, is supposed to be 1:1, some reported slightly higher ratios (3:10 or something similar) but CPUZ is showing 3:32 which sounds absurd. Also, it's reporting the RAM as PC3-12800 at 800 MHz and voltage at 1.5(?). I haev Intel XMP enabled on the motherboard, and the motherboard reports memory speed in BIOS at DDR-2133MHz. Can someone analyze the above shot and information and clue me in as to what is wrong and what needs to be done? I would really appreciate it because I am baffled. I have no clue what the CPU-NB frequency and voltages are for, so I don't want to mess with something I don't know anything about.

Anyway, any and all help is much appre... Read more

hmm that is odd. your core speed is off and your memory is even farther off (82mhz could boost you a lot >_< ) Do you have the latest nforce drivers? how bout your bios? have you checked your clock settings there? set your PCIe to default (i think its 100mhz) and yea.. jus check around in your BIOS and make sure everythings ok there.

My computer clock is very accurate but the Windows sidebar clock has recently been showing the wrong time - sometimes by as much as two hours or more. I've tried to find a way of re-setting it but can't.

These have been running for quite some time now and the clock hasn't been affected until the last few days - after I increased the overall font size. I've changed it back again but the clock is still way out. The only way I can get the right time is to switch off the sidebar facility for a day or two then re-start it. However, the clock shows the wrong time next time I boot up.

This also makes my laptop slower when doing GPU intensive work with dual gpu. THIS HAPPENS EVEN WHEN NOTHING IS GOING ON, JUST WINDOWS RUNNING. A restart fixes the issue instantly and it does not occur for long time afterwards (a day or two).Obviously its a bios bug or motherboard defect. I have updated the latest bios long time ago but it did not fix this problem.

Yesterday i upgraded the BIOS to the latest N1EET60W (1.33 ) and today i tried to visit the BIOS to check some CPU related settings, but i found that almost every setting is locked and i cannot access it.

It is a HIS H485FM1GH Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card. The Core Clock is at 625 MHz, the Memory Clock is at 1986MHz. The final price would be $109.

My comparison so far is that Card 1 has 25 more MHz Core, but 986 Mhz less Memory Clock.
Warranties are the same.
I cannot truly tell, but it seems like the fan on card 1 is less robust than card 2. Can someone confirm this?
As far as my research has led me, the manufacturers themselves are not very different.
GRAM, SPU's, etc., are all identical between the cards. The main difference is in the two clock speeds.

The most major question is this: will a gain of 25MHz in the core clock be more beneficial to high-end gaming with a loss of 986 MHz in Memory Clock? My gut feeling i... Read more

I'm havving issues with a brand new Precision 3620 workstation.
The processor is an Intel 6700K  4Ghz base clock and 4.2Ghz turbo clock.
1) For any kind single threaded task it always runs at 4Ghz and never at 4.2Ghz.
How can I make it run at turbo speed (bios is set so it should) ?
2) For multithreading tasks using all cores (also using SIMD) the clock drops to 3.6Ghz
Using Intel power gadget I measure 60Watt power consumption and 54 degrees C.
(Test is Prime95 using blend mode test, so not max heat small FFT test)

I find this clock behavior quite unacceptable for a PC sold as workstation.
Using the Intel Extreme Tuning tool I can fix issue 2) by rasing the Processor Core IccMax from 92A to 110A.  This indicates wrong CPU setting in the bios, but these hidden settings are not visible to be changed.
Issue 1) I can not fix.
Is there any way to correct these issues ?

And old Windows problem has finally reared its ugly head on my system: "clock drift". My Windows clock keeps losing time. About 1 minute by the end of the day.

My CMOS clock is fine and is NOT losing time. I shut my PC off at night, automatically correcting the Windows clock when I restart the next morning. But my scheduled tasks later in the day will start late as the Windows clock slowly loses time.

I've edited the Registry to update "Internet Time" daily instead of weekly, but the time of day that the clock updates fluctuates, sometimes updating in the morning (which is unhelpful.)

"Clock drift" is a problem that has been around since Windows-3.0. As the number of background tasks grows, the software clock has a tendency to lose time.

Since my CMOS clock is just fine and and polling the Internet NTS (Network Time Server) sometimes fails (about 15% of the time), I was wondering if there was a simple way to automatically resync the Windows clock with my CMOS clock?

TIA.

A:Clock Drift driving me nuts. Any way to sync to CMOS clock?

Here's a link to a constantly updated list of NIST servers.

NIST Internet Time Service

If you search for your existing host in Regedit and substitute one from my list for the preset one you should also stumble upon a registry setting to increase the frequency of synchronisation.

It goes without saying you should back up your registry first, as a safety precaution

hello

i have a printer shared on a windows xp professional machine.... when i try to connect to it i get this message : server clock is not synchronized with the primary domain controller clock

i have googled and the results indicated that i should check the clocks to ensure they are all synchronized on all three computers involved: the computer the share is on, the computer attempting to connect to it and the domain controller.

however the problem remains.. can anyone assist?

A:server clock is not synchronized with the primary domain controller clock

Check dates too?
