    changes time


    Twice now I have corrected the time and it's back again to being seven hours ahead. I'm on PDT and the time settings are on UTC-8 for Pacific.

    Sounds like it may be a bad CMOS battery. I would recommend swapping out the CMOS battery for a new one and resetting the time in the BIOS.

    I would have too agree with Masterchiefxx17 's analysis of this issue.

    How old is the computer?

    I did set it manually and it stays that way for a bit. I haven't noticed exactly when it goes haywire. It's a Dell Inspiron 15-5578 just over a year old. I thought of the CMOS battery, but didn't think the age would warrant that. When I did a PC build just recently following my aging PC giving up the ghost; I took the CMOS battery out of the old one and it still registered 3V. That PC had also been changing time in W10, also, but I'm pretty sure it was OK in Linux. The next time I notice it here I'll boot to Linux and check the time there.
    Edit: I haven't corrected it yet so I'll switch over and check my Linux OS.
    Linux Mint time was correct.

    If you are dual boooting Linux:

    How to Fix Windows and Linux Showing Different Times When Dual Booting

    Don't know much about it. I've always used Linux distros booted from USB when needed.

    As Callender wrote,
    timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 --adjust-system-clock
    at mint terminal should do the trick.
