Problem: the system time does not stay correct. Even after manually updating the BIOS time and also even after manually syncing it with the various servers available under the time options.
Fix: set the internet time sync interval to every minute rather than its default setting? How do I do this?
P.S. This couldn't be a CMOS battery issue surely because even when the system is on and plugged in the system time still deviates from correct. (I assume the CMOS battery is only used when the system is powered off.) If I need it replaced, how does that sit with my Dell hardware warranty?
For right now, lets just try to update your time. To do this, click on the clock in the bottom right. Then, click on change date and time settings. In the window that comes up, go to the top and click on the tab titled Internet Time. Then, click on change settings. Click on update now in the windows that pops up.
