How can my system's clock lose an hour ( it's 9:30 and the clock reads 8:30 even though I reset it this morning) while the computer is turned on all day. The battery is for "off time" and back up, isn't it?

I was having the same problem with my puter. Late 1 hour all the time, until I switched from time.windows.com to time.nist.gov as my internet time server in Date and time properties (double clic on the clock). Never knew what exactly was the problem :thumbsup:.

You may have it set to the wrong time zone.

If the CMOS battery was bad it could loose time too, but if it's exactly one hour it's probably set to the wrong time zone.

It might be your CMOS battery. You should go into BIOS and check to make sure that the time set in there is the correct time too.
