Problem with Computer clock.

Sorry for being vague, Sometimes, about 5 times a week, my computer clock will move 3 hours backwards. As if it were switching to Pacific Time Zone, but my time zone stays at Eastern Time Zone.


I really don't know what is wrong..


Thanks for the help.

Check in your BIOS to confirm the clock is correct.

I think there was a recent Windows update for this -- affecting some time zones...Could u try synchronizing the clock with an alternative Internet time server - it's what I did.
