    Does your Time service look like this?
    Not very good with services, but the Trigger Start looks like something else is calling this to start and perhaps this is not happening on yours

    Same thing, I also have manual and trigger start, once I have chosen to set time automatically in the settings. And if I change the service to run automatically, windows just resets it back to the manual with trigger start.

    Thats how mine is set, auto time settings and the service is manual with a trigger start

    What does Task Scheduler show for Time Synchronisation, does it show that it has run recently?

    Task scheduler doesnt show any Time synchronisation, for last 24h anyway. Am trying to create a new task that would be to run the windows time service, but am facing difficulties. Task scheduler only allows to call programs, and I have no idea where to find a program that activates windows time service. Do you maybe know?

    That might be normal from what i have seen (unless i am thinking of sleep mode),if i am on my laptop and turn it on, it displays the time briefly as the time when i turned it off, then when it checks with the time server it corrects itself
    Thats my observation, someone might tell me i am totally wrong



    Would that be for British Wet Time, lol, used for the whole year :)
    Yeah recently, a new web app was being plaudited as best app in its class.

    I replied - weather forecast in Aberdeen

    Today it is cold and raining,

    Day after, it is cold and raining

    Day after, it will be sunny for 10 minutes, thenn cold and raining

    Day after, it is cold and raining
    etc etc etc.

    Now, PaulSalter, there you really said something. Thanks! I have been onto Task Scheduler, and eventually managed to create a new task to sync the time via windows time server every time a user logs on with a delay of 1 minute - with the thought that sync needs internet. It isnt an optimal solution as once I'm somewhere without internet, the clock will go to hell, and neither is it stable, at least not yet, but on 2 restarts it actually worked and my time was automatically correct on Acer Aspire for the first time ever. Havent had time to check the approach on the other computer yet, but will do

    Good to hear you have got a solution

    I dont often restart my machine, but the scheduled tasks runs once every 24 hours to correct the clock

    Hope your time stays correct :)

    Yeah it's surely the best solution and it works now.
    It would be of course good to know what is wrong generally; I should be getting some CMOS error upon startup if the CMOS battery was dead, I assume, and Im not getting it: don't know what others reasons there might be for BIOS clock standstill. If anyone has an idea, please share: otherwise at least I have a functioning clock and that's great. Wouldn't have figured out myself!
