No matter how often I try to reset my clock it will never keep synchronized. If I set it at 5:15 pm, by six o'clock or so, it will just stop updating and by the next day it is still yesterday.

I do not know if this has anything to do with it but it happened the same day (if not immediately because of) that I uninstalled Amazon Unbox (which, by the way, is amazing at not being good).

I have no idea how to fix it and it just drives me nuts. It is funny the things that go wonky when your computer thinks everything you download and every website you looked at over the past few days all happened at pretty much the same time.

Not life ending, just a pain.

 

Please help me. Time is of the essence... not really, it's broken.

You posted some specs but not the requested information. What brand is your computer and what is the model number?

MSI is a motherboard manufacturer

Model MS-7673 is the model of the motherboard.

intel core i5 2400 Is the processor on the motherboard.

By any chance is this a custom built computer or is it an OEM type? Such as a Dell, Lenovo, HP, ASUS, Acer or some other computer manufacturer brand name. Then we would need the specific model within that brand.

Assuming 'Windows Time' service is set to auto, probably the bios battery is dead/dying.

I completely agree, and to replace the battery you will need to remove your case, unplug the power supply, then remove the battery and replace it with a CR2032 type battery that you can get from any retail store like wal-mart or target in the watch section or in the pharmacy for the diabetic meters.

First thing, change the CMOS battery on the motherboard. Motherboards can sit for months uin the warehouse. The batteries can be sitting on the shelf for a year, if they bulk purchase them.
