Windows 7: Windows 7 clock

When you say the battery is good, are you referring to the CMOS battery? I think you are, but just want to make sure it isn't a laptop and your are referring to the other main battery.

Windows 7 Clock

EZIO,
When booting into Safe mode, the clock works properly.
My Time Zone is correcctly set.
I set correct Time & Date in BIOS but when windows boots the time is
always changed to : 3/7/2012 @ 6:25 PM

VIXEN32,
Yes, I have cleared CMOS. It's somthing Win 7 is doing. I set
correct time & Date in BIOS and exit but go back into BIOS
before Win 7 starts and the T & D are as I set them. I then let
windows boot and the time is now changed to 3/7/2012 @ 6:35PM.

ALPHA,
Yes, it's the CMOS batttery on the motherboard(The computer
is a workstation) I am certain it's a software probblem in Win 7.

I think that back in your OP, you said that you had to reset the time in the BIOS for the time to display properly in Windows. If that is true, then the problem is in the BIOS, not Windows. The only thing that I'm familiar with that would reset the BIOS time, is if you have your Linux distro set to do so, but since I seriously doubt that you are booting into Linux each time before you boot into Windows, that doesn't sound like the answer. After resetting the CMOS time, did you save that configuration in the BIOS?

Windows 7 Clock

SEEKER,

Yes, I do save the BIOS time after resetting it.( I set the time,
save and exit then don't allow Win 7 to start, but go back into
the Bios and the clock is as I set it. I the exit and allow Windows to boot and clock is always 3/7/2012). If I go to safe
mode after setting clock in BIOS, the clock is as I set it.

That is very odd, because as far as I know, Windows doesn't have the ability to change the BIOS's time/date. If the problem is caused by software on boot, as it seems, then I would tend to focus on the idea of some kind of program that is installed, which may have this ability for some kind of special purpose, or malware. The only other thing that comes to mind is something is wrong with the BIOS chip, that is sparked by something during the booting process, but I've never come across such a thing.

Windows can change the BIOS time and date. I just tried it on my desktop PC. I just set my clock ahead by one hour in Windows and rebooted into the BIOS, it was changed there too. Then I set it back to the correct time and it matched it when I booted back into windows.

I think I would run msconfig and have a look at whats starting up when windows loads. 3/7/2012 isn't a date I'd expect to see if the BIOS battery was dead or not working for some reason. The year would be 19xx something. Do any of your buddies like to play pranks on you?

Create a new user with admin rights, reboot and use the new user logon. Does the clock still revert to the old date?

Windows 7 Clock

Kegobeer,
I did as you suggested and the clock was OK using the new user,
But still wrong with me as Administrator.

EZIO,
Did a clean boot and ran all of the troubleshooting options as
was suggested..evan tried a second time and disabled all,including the Microsoft items..Could not isolate the problem,
Clock still wrong. It has to be a service or program causing this but finding it is a mystery.
