Dell Optiplex 755 desktop - Windows 7 sp1 32-bit


An error occurred while Windows was synchronizing with time.windows.com. This operation returned because the timeout period expired.  Turning off Windows Firewall did not fix the problem.  Suggestions are appreciated.


I read where the time.windows.com and the BIOS may not be in sync.



thank you,

First thing I would do...try a different server.  If it also has problems...then I would replace the CMOS battery.
