    Arizona does not observe dst


    At least lost of the State.

    Now, my computer insists it's 10 AM, when the rest of my clocks say it's 11 AM.

    I set the Time Zone to Arizona (-7) and it automatically greys out the DST option.

    Is this a new enhancement ?? Part of a conspiracy to make Arizona go on DST ?? Where is my Aluminum Hat !!

    Seriously, how do I convince this computer we are NOT on DST ?

    Thank you,

    Richard Solomon

    Last time I was in AZ only the large reservation observed DST. My local time for DST is 12:29PM [-6] but if using MST it would be 11:29AM [-7]. Having worked with time for so long [30+ years] I keep a small battery-powered digital clock set at GMT/UTC time, easy to subtract 7 or 6 hours to see if the computer clocks are keeping up.

    DST toggle is set to OFF.

    My clock has been functioning correctly for years until I noticed it was way off yesterday. Went into Date & Time
    and noticed the settings were changed (latest Update ??). Changed them back and all was well until today when
    this thing decided it was on DST whether I wanted it or not and I couldn't change it back.

    Right now I am on Central America time to get the clock correct.

    DST is one hour ahead not one behind

    Try this...

    Make your settings like in the pic, and set your time zone manually. Windows has a problem sometimes with the auto-set part. If needed, turn Adjust for DST off. You may need to reboot.

    Inconsistent PC clock and incorrect date usually indicates the bios coin battery requires replacement. Cheap and easily replaced. Arizona is on MTZ -8 hrs UTC
