View Full Version : XP clock settings

Fairly straight forward one Id imagine.......

Only just recently, my clock settings have been going hay wire, in that the PC seems to never be displaying the correct time. I have the correct GMT settings, and internet time synchronization enabled.

Its been suggested that it could just be the battery on the m/b But Im not so sure, as the computer is less than 2 years old.
Virus scans have not shown anything - nor have spybot etc.

Does anyone have any other ideas

I'd go with the battery needing replacing.

Like Capt Hook, I'd go for the battery.
I had to replace one in my machine - 18 mths old.
Must be a very low useful threshold - the new battery measured 3.26v while the old one still read 3.02v.
New battery - no prob's

Yep, my money is on the battery as well. ;-)

Its cheap enough to find out anyway - less than $5 from the supermarket. Check out the existing one to see which type and number you require first though as they all look the same on the display. ;-)

i would go with the battery too.

99% of them are CR2032 batteries but it pay to check yours.
