Internal clock losing time

my clock seems to be losing time , i set it and a few days later its slow again

That is usually a sign that the on board battery is running out of energy.
If however the motherboard is not 3 years or more old then the fault maybe elsewhere.
I use atomic cock sync to set the on board clock to the correct time every time I boot up or have a problem with the time.
You don’t say what op system you are using but in XP you can set it up to correct the time without third party software.

No it’s direct line dsl.

Atomic clock sync didn’t work for me on Win2k SP4, at least didn’t work as I wanted. It worked only if I selected “Sync Now” and not automatically as it is supposed to do. I have Dimension4 set to check every 15 minutes and sync if needed, and it works exactly as it should.

Dunno…I thought I had an outdated model.:stuck_out_tongue:

Get a new BIOS battery, I’ve also seen this on older machines with broken ACPI support.
