:thumbsup: I change my CMOS battery and my time went back to 2004 and about 20 minutes off. Is there a way of syncing the time on my computer with the rest of the world. (EST)

Did you reset your time and date in the BIOS?

Yes, there is a way to sync your computers clock with the Atomic Clocks around the world and make your system time accurate to within millionths of a second.

To do this:
  • Boot into Windows XP
  • Right click on the clock in your taskbar (or task tray if you want to be technically correct) and choose Adjust Date and Time
  • Click on the Internet Time tab
  • Under the Servers option, choose time.nist.gov
  • Click the Update Now button
  • Click OK to finish

Good morning syscorpsecure. I feel dumb. Did just as you posted and it worked like a charm. I was trying to make it more difficult than it really was. Read you profile, looks good. I'm also a security nut. Radioman U.S.N. not on computers. It never wears off. Thanks.

FWIW: As suggested, you also need to set your date/time data in the BIOS...after changing the CMOS battery. Seems that you have already done so, but just wanted to make sure.
