When I start my system, every time my system time is wrong. I think this is some hardware problem. Or could it be something else? Please advice.

How can I auto synchronize time with a time server? I have tried Windows default time synchronization , but failed. Any other ways? Please help me.

Thanks in advance!

    Just to add, time syncronization using internet time requires that the date time on your computer be *mostly right*, like within a few hours of deviation. At least, thats how it used to be. You can't just ignore a failed CMOS battery and hope internet time will fix it for you.

    Hello, to check if the problem is with an specific time server, try changing server:

    XP:
    -- right click on time in taskbar
    -- adjust date and time
    -- click on internet time
    -- make sure Automatically synchronize with an Internet time server is selected
    -- click on down arrow next to server
    -- choose a different server
    -- click on update now
    -- click on apply and then ok.

    WINDOWS 7:

    -- right click on time in taskbar
    -- select adjust date and time
    -- click on internet tab
    -- click on change settings and provide password if needed
    -- make sure synchronized with an Internet time server is selected
    -- click on down arrow and selected a different server
    -- click on update now
    -- click on ok
    -- click on apply and then ok.

    You should try changing the CMOS battery.

    If the time is *always* wrong, your backup battery is dead. Open the PC and look for a small button battery (usually CR2016 or CR2032), remove it, noting the polarity, and replace it.
