Or you can try this ...

Those errors mean the computer can't contact the configured Network Time Protocol(NTP) source.  From a command line run "net time" to see what the NTP source is.  You can run "net time /setsntp IPADDRESS" to configure a new net time provider, or uncheck "Automatically update time..." in the Date/Time properties to prevent the system from attempting to syncronize it's time with external source.

Hello.
This error is that Corlie says but I suggest you to do another procedure. Here you have all the registry entries that affects the service: http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B223184&x=10&y=16
In regedit go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters
Here you will find 2 keys that are what we are lookin for
Type
NtpServer
 WHat are the values of them?
If your server is a domain member you will have NT5DS on Type, and if not probablly you have NTP. If you have NT5DS change it to NTP and in NtpServer put the complete name of your NTP server (tipically the name of your domain controlles like dc.mydomain.com). If it's already in NTP check if the value in NtpServer is correct.
Then restart the Windows Time Service and run the command "w32tm /resync" to force a resync to the NTP Server. This procedure don't cause any loss of service to your clients.
Please paste the results.

Hope this helps.
