Try a $2 battery first. if not you can find an atomic clock program to keep it updated.

This is the best tip so far. Usually on the mobo the battery is dying (people don't realize it's a battery there like your watch) and it's nothing to replace it.

If that doesn't do it then it's like Jughead posted, try a atomic clock program. I'm using one at home and it's never given me problems.

If your copy of XP is legal try updating drivers and such. Since daylight's savings time wasn't on the usual day a lot of things have been thrown off.

I would. Be careful not to bend or break anything and stay grounded by touching the frame or some type of metal (I usually am leaning my arm on the cover) and yeah, pop out the old battery and put in a new one. I've done it once a while back when my clock kept changing times and realized that's what it was.

I didn't have that problem when I had to replace mine. Maybe I caught it in time.

is your machine set to the correct timezone?

it sounds like everytime XP hits the ntp server to sync up that it's changing your time by 1 hr because you have an incorrect timezone set for your machine

That isn't evident anymore like it was in the old days when you had to manaully set hard drive parameters in the BIOS. I doubt Ken has changed any non-default settings in the BIOS that aren't already PnP, so the clock is really the only indication of a failing battery.

How old is the computer? I haven't had to replace a BIOS battery in ages, they usually outlast my usage of the computer itself.

Ken, change the battery. Even if that's not the problem at least you can eliminate that as a cause.

BZZT!

the battery keeps the time for the clock when it's not running on AC.

it's easier to take a meter to the battery and check for proper voltage than to just swap it outright.

if Ken's clock was off a few minutes then I would suspect a battery issue but he says it's off by 1 hour exactly so it would seem to be a software issue...

sounds like a daylight savings time issue to me too since you're always setting it ahead 1 hr.

is the date correct?

Ok, then he can do the other suggestions, update. lol Either that or get a free software program to keep up with the time. I'm using one because of the different day that was used this year. I'm using an atomic program so I don't have to worry about this crap again.

I can never understand Ken's posts LOL

Ken are you saying that you have to randonly bump up the time as it's falling behind, or it's always 1 (or 2 or 3) hours off, but the minutes are correct?

Like I said, I rarely touch batteries anymore. It's either a DST setting, DST-realtaed patch issue (not updated) or you could be synching with a 'bad' server.

Dude, its your time zone and/or the DST fix. Since when did you move to central america? LOL!

Cange it to "central time (US&Canada)"

Doh!

I didn't even see this post.

Central America doesn't observe DST, so your clock will be off half of the year. Plus it wreaks havoc with your Outlook Calendar...
