Hi,

1) This is due to the Daylight Saving (recently changing the time)
2) There are 2 or 3 desktop and laptops computer which are not updated automatically
- I try to update MANUALLY, but it RESET to the "old setting"
- For example: say it Now, March 15 --> 6:20 AM
- The above computers would be at March 15 --> 5:20 AM
- I try (many times) to change it to March 15 at 6:20 AM (but it will RESET back to 5:20 AM)
3) Any help
4) Thanks

What OS is it?

Do you have a NTP server?

Check under time zone and make sure the time zone is selected correctly.

Hi there Tjie,

This sounds like you could have the time wrong in the BIOS before the computer boots, or as others have said maybe your OS is in the wrong timezone.  So depending on your OS you need to get to the control panel, and then select date/time in the list and check your settings.  What OS are you running on these machines?  Also if you have a domain, then the time should be synchronizing when you  would be logging in.  If you are working in a workgroup mode only, then you might want to either setup the workstations to use a NTP server to sync the time from.  NTP stands for Network Time Protocol, and there are settings in your workstations that could be enabled to use a NTP server, off the internet or locally!  Check out Network Time Protocol ORG and you will find a list of NTP servers and more information about NTP.

Let us know how you make out?

What time zone are you in? it's true the BIOS won't affect this but it is good practice.

Mexico will not be following the new DST 2007 rules with the U.S. and Canada.

also Arizona (most of the state), Alaska and Hawaii don't use daylight savings


also are you on a domain ro workgroup

1) The Os is XP
2) I have to do the Windows Update (it seems it is quite a long time not been updated)
3) Before, i adjust  "the time setting" --> it does not work
4) Before, i adjust " the time setting at Bios --> it does not work
