Windows 7: Slow clock. Please help.

Slow clock. Please help.

Hi there. My clock always seems to run slowly by like 15 or so seconds. I even went into the registry and set it to update every 4 hours but I still notice it runs slow sometimes. I know it can't be my CMOS battery dying since my system is still fairly new. Any ideas?

15 seconds is not a lot...what are you using for a reference to determine the error? Try changing the time server to one of the government servers, instead of the Windows server.

I just did. I'm using my FiOS set top box and cell phone. Sometimes it's spot on but sometimes it'll be off by like 10-15 seconds.

How can I see what version of BIOS I currently have installed?

So should I just go ahead and install it? Do I need to uninstall the other one first or anything? Or just simply double click the binary file and follow the steps?
