Windows 7: Windows Time Losing an hour!

Windows Time Losing an hour!

Weirdly, whenever I reboot in the last few days, my time is 1 hour behind.
I have to go to the time and date settings and re-sync with the time server to correct it. The Time Zone is set correctly.
Any ideas?

must be some bios battery problem? do you have other operating system dual booted to confirm it?

is it correct before you restart?
might be a low mobo battery
does it do this with all OS`s?
does it go back an hr everytime you restart, like multiple times and it ends up 3-4 hrs behind w/out correcting it?

Check if the bios time loses minutes too.

Remove you motherboard battery and replace it again ..enter your motherboard configuration and set the time and the date ..press F10 ( save and Exit ) ..

if you faced this problem again buy a new battery for your motherboard

Thanks guys. I triple boot with 7, Vista and OSx86 and it's only 7 that has the problem, and even then it's not every time. So, logic would tell us that it's not the mobo battery, wouldn't it?

Yep
What build of win 7? Are you in a zone that uses daylight std time?

If it's only losing an hour it could be something to do with your time-zone & daylight savings settings.

Click the time/date on the notification bar and click 'Change time and date settings'

Click 'Change time zone' and make sure that 'Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time' is selected

Thanks again guys. I'm in GMT with daylight savings and all the settings are correct.
The weird thing is that it doesn't happen every re-boot. Only occasionally, and only in the last couple of weeks.

I have a really lame idea. why not chage your timezone to any other time zone. save it and reboot. then re-set it back to you time zone. some times weird things like this get fixed by reset
