for some reason my windows xp time keeps jumping up an hour from the correct time.  it's not set to sync with anything.  i can set it to whatever time i want and when I reboot it changes to one hour from now.  all updates (including dst update) are installed.  im not on a network in fact I even disconnect the internet plug and it still does it.  i set the time right in the bios and it jumps one hour when it boots up.  what could be happening???

In the time zone tab, do you have "Automatically adjust for daylight savings" checked?

mark319,

Go to Control Panel > Regional Settings > Time.  Make sure the box next to Daylight Saving Time is checked and then make sure the time is correct.  Save changes.  Reboot to test.

If no joy, uninstall the DST update 931836 from Add/Remove Programs > Show Updates.  Then reinstall it

Sorry simpswr !  For some reason, I did not see your post (too many other things going on).  I should have referred to your post and stated I am adding to it in my first sentence.

Hey Mark,
All you need to do is double click on the time in your system tray to bring up the settings window. Then go to timezone and make sure your correct timezone is selected along with daylight savings check box. Finally, go to the internet time tab and select "automatically synchronize with an internet time server," and make sure time.windows.com in in the box next to "server:" and click update now. From then on, it should keep your time in check. Let me know if that works.
cheers,
Garrett

Sorry for the miscommunication, the tab says "internet time" and you check the box that says "automatically...."

If that tab isn't there, then it usually means you're connected to a domain or that windows is syncing time in the background with some server.

So have you tried setting the time in windows instead of the bios?
