Windows 10: Clock reverts to wrong time after a reboot

    Clock reverts to wrong time after a reboot


    Having an issue when rebooting LINX tablets where the clock will revert to an hour behind or sometimes further. Have tried numerous ways of changing the time to correct which it does, but when you restart the tablet, it always goes back to the wrong time.

    This happens whether you are on a local account or administrator account. Have also tried turning daylight saving off but again, after a restart this is turned back on.

    Microsoft support haven't been much help so wondering if anyone else has any ideas as to why this keeps happening?

    Thanks

    Hi there, @Stokesyboy.

    My PC did not change to standard time here this past weekend. Going into to Date and Time and manually syncing with time.windows.com. fixed it for me. I had to do it through the Control Panel.

    Control Panel > Date and Time > Internet Time tab > Change settings button > Update now.

    Hi,

    Had tried that previously but thought it was worth another go so did it but after a reboot sure enough the time has gone back an hour.

    I don't know if there is an issue with the TimeSynchronization service as some of the devices I've looked at it hasn't run for a while and it has no triggers setup. I have tried setting a trigger to start the service when the user logs on but this doesn't seem to work. No matter what I try it just seems to revert after a reboot.

    First, try this Brink tutorial - Synchronize Clock with an Internet Time Server in Windows 10
    If this doesn't work, check that BIOS time is correct - https://www.wikihow.com/Change-Computer-BIOS-Settings
    If BIOS time is changed by you and not sticking, check CMOS battery. Good Luck

    Possibly this setting. It has caused problems before. Set it off and manually set your Time Zone.

    I have just tried all of the above, and the sfc & dism options didn't pick anything up, here is the settings which show in time and language:

    The time should be showing as 16:45 but as you can see it's sat at 13:45.

    Should make no difference, but what happens if you choose just plain UTC, without the city choices.

    And it should have been 16:58. Make sure your language and region are set correctly. Look thru this and see if anything clicks. Windows 10 Time ALWAYS wrong - Microsoft Community
