    My comper clock is 1 hour off. Why?


    I just noticed that the clock in my computer is 1 hour fast. I checked the settings and they all appear correct. The time zone is right, it is set to adjust automatically for daylight savings time, and set time automatically is turned on. Any ideas? HELP PLEASE.
    Thanks... Bob

    Right click on the clock, select adjust date/time.
    Make sure your time zone is set correctly on that screen. On that same screen on the right click on Additional date, time & regional settings.
    On the next screen click Set the time and date.
    Again make sure the time zone is correct, then click on the tab for internet time.
    Click Change Settings.
    In the Server: box, manually enter pool.ntp.org
    Click update now until you get a successful update.

    Mine was set correctly. It was just off by one hour today. Telling it to update now fixed it, but very strange.

    I did as you said. I could not find anything that said "check internet time". I manually changed it to the correct time. We'll see how long that lasts. I am going to reboot the computer now. We'll see if that makes any difference.

    Thanks... Bob

    Actually, GMT/Greenwich Mean Time or UTC/Coordinated Universal Time [sometimes called Zulu] doesn't go to Daylight Savings, stays the same year-around. It's based upon the 0 Longitude line with a 1 hour change for each 15 of Longitude change and some countries make changes when considering economic or political wishes. The 180 Longitude is where a day will change depending upon direction of travel. Due to the number of time zone changes possible, Aviation and Maritime/Shipping nearly always use GMT/UTC as a constant reference.

    Exact same problem happened to me today as well. Clock was fine until I went to lunch / errands around 1pm Central. When I came back to my desk at 3pm central, my clock said 4pm. Something weird happened that caused the clock to jump ahead 1 hour.

    Hi there

    Check also the time in the CMOS (BIOS) - unless your Windows clock is being set by Internet Time the Windows clock will take date and time from the BIOS after a re-boot.

    Cheers

    The clock is supposedly being set off of the einternet. After I manually changed the clock yesterday it is still holding the correct time since then.` We'll see if it holds up. Thanks... Bob
