Hello all,

The other night we had a power outage in our area, and when the power came back on the clock on my computer was wrong. I went in to the control panel and changed it back, however; whenever I restart the my pc the time is wrong again. Any ideas how to fix? I am running window XP

Hello, if your battery hasn't failed,this should do it...

To fix the clock display:

Go to Start >> Control Panel.
Select Regional and Language Options.
In the Standards and Formats section... next to the language you are using... click the Customize...button
Press the Time...tab.
In the Time Format...box, for 12 hour time display... change the format to:

h mm ss tt
hh mm ss tt

Select the other display options you want... separator, AM, PM...

When done...click Apply and OK as needed.

You should check the “Time Zone” tab of the Date and Time Properties to be sure you have it set correctly. You can also place a check by the “Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes”, if needed.

Also, if it is off by one hour turn off synching with a time zone server
In the beginning there was the command line.
