Hi

 

The clock on my computer is showing the wrong time, about 1 hour and 25 minutes slow.  Everything else about the date is correct and the time zone is correct.  I think this started around the time of all the big updates.  Any idea what could be causing this or how to fix it?

 

Thanks.

When you adjust the time does the clock run down?  

 

On my laptop when I right click the time I get a window for changing time.

 

(Google search will give you some other ideas how to adjust clock time if you have not done it.)

 

Does the clock lose time after setting proper time or remains off at a constant time?  

 

 

 

* Many years ago on an old Toshiba Satellite my clock would run down after a re-set.   Techs at Best Buy had to do something with a BIOS problem. 

 

Have fun.

I haven't tried to reset the time manually because there should be a way to do it automatically, if I can't find a way I will try manually.

Have you tried this?

(as you know control panel can be accessed by right-clicking on the Win 10 start)

 

Also perhaps check in Services that Windows Time service is set to start automatically.

If synchronizing to the internet doesn't resolve this you may have a CMOS battery failing.

For some reason it has recently fixed itself, so for now I'm ok.
