Windows time

The time of my computer does not "refresh" when the PC starts up again.
The PC is part of a domain. When I do a 'net time' I get a result form my DC with the current time. Only this machine with the problem.

For example, if I shut down my computer on 3 May 2008, 10pm, even when I switch on my computer on 4 May 2008 9am, the date and time shows 3 May 2008, 10 pm.

Thanks in advance

I think , Machine has issue with BIOS clock or battery. Please check motherboard manual  and Jump setting for clock.

Hello,

Have you tried the following operations :

1/ open a cmd prompt then stop and unregister w32time
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister

Open in new window


3/ REBOOT

4/ open a cmd prompt then register w32time and start the service
w32tm /register
net start w32time

Open in new window


5/ update configuration so w32time syncs on domain
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:DOMHIER /update

Open in new window


Tell me if this works for you !

None of that seems to work. Any other ideas. If it was the battery, wouldn't the time default back to the same time every time the PC is shutdown?

Bios clock is increment by one crystal that is powered by this battery, can you please check for battery voltage or check after replacing battery.

In last case scenarios, Bios crystal may have gone faulty.

I upgraded bios firmware. That seemed to do the trick.

Upgrading the BIOS firmware seemed to be a possible solution, so I tried that.
