How do I change my clock setting on Windows XP?

Hi,

I am running Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 32-Bit Operating System. I don't have any problems with my system, except for this annoying clock, that keeps changing it's time zone and the time itself. Every time I turn my computer on, I have to change the time to my current time.

While working on my computer, the clock will stay firm and will not change its value unless I shut down my computer. After rebooting, the clock will change its value and time zone to a different country.

 

It's just so annoying, because sometimes I forgot to change and correct the current time. Like for instance, when I look at the clock with the time 12:37 am I am thinking that it is really time for bed and that I worked for long hours, then I will realize that it is not the real time.

I set the Internet time to automatically synchronize with an Internet time server and set the server to time.windows.com, then clicked on update now. I switched on the server to time.nist.gov but either way, I have no luck. I already set the time zone correctly, but every time I shut down and restart my computer, the time zone will change its value again.

I want to know how to change the settings for my clock?

And what is causing my clock to change on random booting?

Can someone send me a solution please?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Piper Gray,

There is a very easy solution for this problem. Hope you take it easy.

From the screen shot that you've attached in this question, I see that you have checked – automatically synchronize with an Internet time server and also checked – automatically adjust clock with daylight saving change. Please remove this settings and press, OK.

If this did not work, please check your BIOS time settings. If it is wrong, please correct it and reboot the computer again.

To go to the BIOS, press F2 or Delete or F12 or according to your service provider again and again.

Hope this will work.

Hi Dear,

The problem you are facing is not a software problem. But it is a hardware problem. I am going to tell you how to solve this problem.

Basically our computer consists of a hardware that keeps the time up to date, it is just like a cell in the alarm clock. In your case it looks like your hardware is dead and that's why it is not updating your system time. And system time only updates when the power of the computer is ON.

So what you have to do is, replace your cell with a new one. It is a real cheap device and can be available at your next door computer shop. I hope you catch my points and will see to replace it. Here is a diagram for you to see.
