Windows 7: My clock goes out of time

argh! NOW you mention it's a bodge job hackintosh. i thought you were running win7 x64, i guess that assuming because your profile info under your avatar says win7 x64 and that this is a win7 forum, that you were running win7, was silly of me. that info at the beginning would have been useful.

if macos doesn't work on your pc, you might try an apple flavoured forum. if you are running macos in some sort of virtual emulation in win7, my listed links should work for the base win7 system time while you ponder a hardware replacement. all bets are off running macos in the virtual machine tho. see the emulator vendors forum for help.

... and try the new bios' cmos battery, like chicken soup for a cold, it can't hurt. DO NOT give your MB chicken soup tho.

have you done anything that may have modified the bios? like flashing it with a new vendor's bios - possibly for a different sub-version of the same MB?

the fix for a bad real time clock on the motherboard is a new motherboard. attempting to fix it by replacing components will likely cost more than a new board, at least if you pay a competent repair person. if you use anyone else you will likely pay them, and still have the cost of a new MB to pay when they fail.

since you also run osx your are probably running into this issue Does Windows 7 support UTC as BIOS time? - Super User and confusing your os's so either make osx not use UTC or make windows use UTC.

Hey thanks people, I just realized that my Bios clock is out of time too, ... I set the right time like 3 days ago.... 4 hours more or something out..
I am starting to not care about this problem , since my computer is running flawlessly..
But I wonder is this timing stuff can cause any problems with my Audio/video applications..
Can that be an issue, .. if not, I am just going to hide the clocks...
Because I am really not in the mood of lookkng around for troubleshooting anymoe

Thanks a lot

EDIT: ah, another thing is that most of the time I am disconnected from internet in my Win7 installation..

Like I said your time will always be wrong if you switch between the two since they use different ways to understand the time. Also not having net time doesn't help that is true too. The date stays correct though right?
