For quite some time now my clock gets set back every now and then. At first it was about an hour back each day, and a synchronize with one of the time servers fixed it.
For the last couple of days however it’s being set back an hour every hour that passes or something. Which makes it quite annoying.
When I turn my PC off for the night and turn it on the next day it will be set back by a couple of hours (about 5-10).
The first thing I can find online is that the battery on the motherboard has probably run dry. However the PC is only a bit more than a year old and there are no messages on startup (normally the motherboard will give you a notification if the battery is low).
Furthermore the PC is always connected to electricity, and I think it doesn’t have to use the onboard battery that way…
I have tried changing the internet time servers, turning it off and on but no result so far.
Which Windows Version are you using and what kinda motherboard do you have and how old is it? Not usually if the battery is bad it doesn’t always tell you and sometimes it just dies and resets your CMOS each time you start. No the onboard battery is to maintain your BIOS setting . You have to provide more specs on your motherboard so others can know what your talking about with board you have. Which time servers are you talking about and goes to what I mentioned earlier you give very little details to know what is exactly going on. And also you never mentioned if your windows update is up to date or which version. So go back and get those info and come back and tell us so we have a clearer picture of what your talking about???
