Windows 7: Date and Time keeps changing

Date and Time keeps changing

So anytime I set my date and time to the correct settings either manually, in the bois, or allowing to sync with internet time option, the date and time seem to adjust forward randomly but seems to be often 2-3 weeks. Not sure when it changes since I never catch real time but I've changed my time approximately 10 times now and it never sticks. What's up???

Hello Piotrowr,

It sounds like you may need to replace a dead or weak battery on your motherboard.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

The PC was put together about 3 months ago so it would be strange to already need a new battery.

My PC is not hooked up to the phone. Our phone is hooked up to the cable modem.

I believe the Captain was referring to a cellphone, rather than a landline.

Is your system time incorrect right now? If so, could you tell us what the time says, as opposed to the actual local time for you?

Yes, I just reset to local time at 11:17 and now I'm looking at it and it's 2:24pm, moved two hours ahead already. Time zone and all looks good.

No I do not have a cell phone hooked up to the pc.

All the motherboards I've seen use the same battery. It's a lithium coin-cell, type CR2032.

If you open up the time menu that lets you change the time, select the other tab, which says "additional clocks." Do you have any set?

Also, I would try setting your time zone to something else, select "apply" close the window, then reopen it and set it to the proper time zone again.

No other clocks active and I did as you recommended with the time zone.

Computer double beeping and changing date and time.
Hello. For the last few months almost every time I turn on my computer it will double beep(instead of one beep) and once I get to my desktop the date will go back to January 1st, 2011. If this is not the right spot to put this then please move it.

Time changing, date remains correct
At night, when I power down my Vista desktop, the time gets changed to the wrong time, but the date remains correct. Could this still be the CMOS battery? Thanks
