    Clock constantly loses time, correct in bios


    I have a windows 10 tablet and the clock is constantly losing time by significant amounts. Just a few minutes after starting the clock slows by as much as 10min and eventually gets to several hours slow.

    Yes, the time and timezone are set correctly in settings.

    Yes, it is set up to sync with time.nist.gov

    The really puzzling thing is that the bios/uefi clock is correct and stays correct. So in my limited knowledge it seems the problem must be with windows.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Boot to Safe Mode and see if it still happens. If not then something is starting at boot and continuing to run that is causing the problem. Use Clean Boot to isolate the cause of the problem.
