Windows 7: Windows system time multiple issues

Windows system time multiple issues

Hi there,
Recently my computer froze and I had to shut it down by holding the power button, ever since my windows time has been acting very strange. The time is about 7 hours early every time I boot, when I try to sync the time manualy it tells me I don't have administrative rights, which I'm 100% positive I do have.


That's the error I get, sorry for the dutch but since it doesn't exactly give an error code I doubt it's going to be very helpfull either way.
I have also noticed that the windows time service no longer shows up in the services list, but I have no idea how to manualy start it and even if I did I doubt having to start it manualy every time I boot is the proper way of handling things....


I hope some of you very helpful people can be as helpful to me as I've seen you be to others :) Thanks in advance!

Hey, tried a System Restore to a date before the issue yet?

Well I could try but I'd rather use that as a last resort given the fact that the most recent one goes 2 months back and godknowswhat I will lose.

Hi Solution6996,

A System Restore doesnt affect any data you have saved on the laptop. Here is an article that will give you a better understanding of what a System Restore will affect. Hope this helps.

What types of files does System Restore change?

Thanks,
Kevin

I know what system restores touches and what not but I've customised windows to my preference quite a bit(which would all be undone) in the last month, and it uninstalls al installed software as well, which is quite a lot over the past 2 months.
I've going to just go ahead and do it either way and spend a few hours re-installing and customizing again though, I'll just let you know when it's done :)

browse to Windows/System32 - run w32time.exe

Two things I can think of.
One is replacing the battery on the motherboard and setting the bios time/date correctly.

Next would to make sure your time zone/date/time is correct in Windows 7.
If these are to far off the auto time will not work. You must set them close and then do the auto time check.

I use (time.windows.com)

***Do you have all needed Windows Updates including SP-1 installed.

This doesn't change anything related to my time and if I restart my pc the service has to be manualy restarted again, so sadly this doesn't help much Thanks tho!

Erm how would I go about changing a motherboard battery? I've never heard of a motherboard even having one. I'll check to see if the mobo time is correct though
I do have every update installed that I can install :P

Your motherboard manual should help with the battery replacement.
