Perhaps the battery? How old is your computer?

Inside your computer, on the motherboard, there is a battery. It's like a hearing aid battery only bigger (3/4 inch wide). When that battery starts running out, your clock will get out of sync.

FYI it's a CR2032

You should be able to buy a battery at any place that sells computer parts, etc, or at a specialized battery store such as Batteries R Us.
If it is always wrong by exactly one half hour check to make sure the proper time zone is set in the taskbar clock.

Cr33p3rb0y,

This is most likely a CMOS battery issue as everyone has said. Here's a link that will give you step by step instructions. How To Replace The CMOS Battery In Your PC
