The clock is displaying wrong time


Hi Joelabrame,

To adjust the clock to display the correct time you need to adjust it from the computer BIOS. Here's how it's done:

1. Restart your computer.

2. While the computer boots its system you need to hit the key to enter BIOS. A message similar to this will appear

   "Press <F1> to enter BIOS setup"

   You must press the corresponding key to access the BIOS menu.

3. Now select the menu that lets you change the time. Then exit and save the changes.

Now check the system time and the gadget time if they are exact. 

Talking about clock gadget, well its cool and you can easily track the time. It also allows you to change its style. You can select the style that suits your taste. You can also add another clock. You can adjust each clock with different time zones. In this way you can track time from different places. Useful if you have friends, family, or someone that lives elsewhere.

Hope this helps.
