Windows 7: why does the time on my computer clock keep changing on its own

Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit

Why don't you just replace the battery :) You can disable timeserver updates by going to Control Panel -> Date and Time, then to the third tab in the window (Internet time)...but frankly, there's no good reason to do so. It won't solve your specific issue, of that I'm 99% sure...

Try changing internet time servers. My problem was solved after I switched fm Windows to a .gov time server.

Glad you got things fixed. All my computers use Windows time. If I ever have that problem I will remember that.

Was having a similar problem with my samsung laptop and tried many of the solutions put forward here and on other forums.
The solution, for me was pretty simple.
I shutdown the computer, pulled the power cord out and also pulled the battery out and rebooted, fixed the time issue and it hasn't reoccurred again.

Not easy on a laptop though which is what this is.

Edit: Just found the manual and this one is not too bad:

Well, scratch that, spoke too soon.
The laptop has started to lose time again.
I will have to maybe look at replacing the cmos battery.

Computer double beeping and changing date and time.
Hello. For the last few months almost every time I turn on my computer it will double beep(instead of one beep) and once I get to my desktop the date will go back to January 1st, 2011. If this is not the right spot to put this then please move it.
