Windows 10: timezone is 11 hours off Solved

    timezone is 11 hours off


    Hi,

    I am on the east coast and my computer has always reflected EST but with Windows 10, it shows six hours off when I set it for EST. I have to set it to -11 hours off from GMT to get the time correct. That would be fine but that time zone does not allow for Daylight Savings time changes so it's OK now but when there is a time change, this computer will be off by an hour the next day.

    I updated from windows 7 and the computer kept hanging so I did a complete install and am seeing this time problem now. I tried using a NIST program that syncs with the government time server but Win 10 won't let it sync saying I don't have administrator privileges. That is a separate issue I'll have to look into but as it stands, I have this computer set for EST, I am 100 miles from New York City and it is showing 4:50PM but the real time for me is 10:50AM

    Any suggestions? In 35 years of using desktops, this is a first for me.

    Thanks.

    You probably already have, but did you check all of these? NIST is one of the choices for time server, you don't need a separate program. Also here: Click image for larger version.

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    Yes, I checked all the obvious things to me and no success. I did though click on date & time settings > Region & Language > Additional date, time & regional settings > change the time zone = This brings up a window titled date & time (Note, the zone was set for EST) click on change date and time and I changed the digital time to the correct time and changed PM to AM.

    That persisted with the correct time. However, with the option of "Internet time" > change settings, selecting time.NIST.gov fails to connect, I have to use the default time.windows.com

    Oddest thing, has to be a bug of some kind, at least I've never run into it before and the BIOS clock was correct before installing win 10.

    Now to try and figure out how to network all the computers so they transfer equally with each other, like they did in Win 7.

    Glad something worked! GOOD LUCK with that Networking! It's very finicky!
