Windows 7: Windows 7 Time problem

Windows 7 Time problem

I've been trying to figure out how to fix this problem since I received my computer. It's a custom built computer and has never been able to keep accurate time. Even while I'm using the PC, the clock will lose time. I will set the clock and calendar to the correct time and with in the hour I will have lost 5 or 10 minutes. If I shut my computer off and turn it back on, I will have lost hours if not days. I have made sure that it is syncing, the battery is new (I replaced the motherboard battery a few months ago), I accessed the BIOS and made sure the time was correct there, and I even created a new task that would update the clock every 5 minutes. Now, not only is it still not keeping track of the time, my task scheduler no longer has the task I created and won't let me create any new tasks (forgive me, I can't remember the error that it displays and I am not at my PC at the moment). What are my options? I don't really want to re-install windows 7, although I will if I have to.

Probably the first thing to try would be a new CMOS battery. Sometimes new batteries can be suspect, which may be the case with the last battery you fitted.

Try the below solution:
First right-click on the Taskbar clock and select adjust date/time. Then click on the Internet Time tab and select Change settings button. Just then erase the Server field and get it replace with After that click Update now and in a few seconds, Windows clock will get synchronized. Then, click on OK button. Hope it helps.
