Hi experts:

I would like to how to reset the system time.  I went to BIOS (system >date/time) and reset the system time, but it soon returned to the old time (one hour behind) when I rebooted the system.

Thanks!

Did you get the DST updates for XP?
Try this..
double-click your clock (or go into control panel and modify the Date/Time applet there) - from the Time Zone tab, deselect to automatically update DST.

If the time stays put - you simply need to update with the correct windows patch for DST...

Are you resetting (in the BIOS) to an 00:00:00 value?
What's the region u've choosed in your Windows OS?
Hoe about the battery in your BIOS? Maybe it need to be replaced?
