Error with Client Clock not in sync with Server

Hi,
I'm trying to connect a new laptop to a network domain but when the user tried to log on, they got an error saying that she couldn't log on because the time/date on the laptop was different from the server time. Can someone please help me and let me know what I need to do in order to get this laptop user to be able to log on. Thank you.

What you will need to do is log in as a local administrator on the PC (note: log on locally, not on to the domain).  Once you are in, reset the time manually to match the server.  You don't need to be exact to the 10th of a second or anything, just get it close.  Then log out and try to log in as a domain admin or user to see if that helped.

FYI - to reset the time, just double-click the time on your system bar at the bottom right of the screen.

Check the time zone as well.

Once the machine is on the domain, time synchronization occurs automatically - if the time difference is within reasonable limits and the Windows Time Service is running.

sometimes, logging in as a local admin and running gpupdate /force does the trick.
