Windows 10: Win10 time suddenly an hour off

    Win10 time suddenly an hour off


    So as of yesterday Mar 30 the time on my PC started displaying an hour ahead than actual time for no reason. No changes to clock settings. Daylight savings was Mar 12 where I live and my PC adjusted automatically as per normal. If I go into Date and Time settings, I see 'set time automatically' is checked. Timezone is set correct (Pacific Time US & Canada). Adjust for daylight saving time automatically is checked. If I uncheck that, the clock goes back an hour and displays correct time. Problem is I shouldn't have to uncheck that since I do live in a timezone that observes daylight saving and Windows should adjust properly.

    Thoughts, ideas?

    I have seen a similar report elsewhere and it was the same time zone as yours. The fix was to change the time server used to check/update the correct time. Simply type pool.ntp.org into the box as shown and click update now. See if that fixes your issue. If not, you can always go back and select your original setting:
