The clock on my computer Oct. 16th, 2011 @ 04:42 AM Reply

It keeps auto-resetting itself to be 3 hours earlier than it actually is.
Like every few days.

Its 4:40 right now and my computer clock is saying 1:40 for those can't can't add and subtract shit.

No matter what I do to fix the date and time or time zone it just reverts back to this shit a little bit later, and frankly I'm sick of fixing it.
Tell me NG what do I need to do.

in b4 delete system 32

If your computer is <5 years old, chances are it's the BIOS battery dieing. The BIOS uses a small coin cell battery to keep the time and date when you power off the computer, if it's a desktop, just simply open the case and locate it on the motherboard (It's usually near the PCI slots). If you have a laptop, It's sometimes under the main battery, or under the RAM or hard drive. If it's nowhere easily accessible, you may have to take your entire laptop apart, or pay some one a ridiculous amount to do so. If it's a modern computer, it could just be a software problem. Try entering BIOS next time you start up and see if the problem persists. If it does, it's definitely the battery. If not, it's a software problem and there isn't much I can suggest for that.

Your problem may be a used up motherboard battery as andy70707 mentioned.

The fact that it consistently sets the time back by exactly three hours would lead me to believe that it may be a software error instead. Motherboard battery failure usually sets the hardware time back to the earliest compatible time so the time and date would show something like January 1st 1970 or another date in the past.

It sounds as though your computer's clock is set to the wrong timezone or daylight savings time mode and will continue to set itself back three hours every time it contacts the time server it uses. Try right clicking on the clock or looking for time zone options and be sure they are set correctly.

Ask some computer technician if your CMOS battery is working right.

Actually that may have been the problem in the first place, it kept synchronizing with the wrong time. Thanks for the brotip.
