Hello Maverick,

If you manually change the time to be correct, does it stay that way?

I would also recommend to check what the time is set as in BIOS to see if that may be off, and to synchronize the time in Windows 7.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You lost 14 years of data. Why didn't you boot from "recovery environment" or linux live-cd and backupped the data to external disk?

if the time won't 'stick', you may have to change your motherboard battery.

don't worry, it's cheap and easy to do.

When I try and synchronise with the time servers it says windows was unable to synchorise with the server.

Maverick,

You will not be be able to synchronize the time since your current time is so far off. You'll have to manually change your time to be correct first, then try synchronizing it to get it more accurate. It's not uncommon to have to try synchronizing it more than once or to change the time server before it works though.

If your time does not stay set correctly afterwards, then check your BIOS time, and you may have to replace your motherboards battery as Mickey posted above.

It needs to be manually set to the actual time first mate.

What time server do you use in control panel time settings? And what happens what you click "update now"? Does it update or gives you an error message (what message?)
