Since I reinstalled my computer, the clock does not keep the right time. Often changes by 6-7-8- hours. I adjust it when it goes awry, but days later changes again. There is not a choice with am and pm. thank you for reading this, I hope you can help. geona

Your CMOS battery might be low. Go into the BIOS and check the date/time there.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I do not know how to get into BIOS. I should have said I am a novice. Can you help me further, please. Thank you, geona

It's usually the del or F2 key. Look at your POST screen for an indication of Setup. If you have a splash screen instead of a POST screen sometimes tab will make it switch to the POST screen.

If you still can't get in, look at the manual that came with your motherboard or computer mfg or have a look at this page.

Hello .... Welcome to GeeksToG


Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL or F1 or F2 or Esc or F10 button

How old is the computer?
What type of computer is it? laptop or desktop?
What brand of computer? Dell, HP, Compaq, home built?

As stated I also suspect the cmos battery is dead/bad and will need to be changed.

Since it always changes by the same amount of hours (6- 7 -8) I am guessing that your Time Zone setting in Windows for your clock is not set right.

Either go to the control panel and change your time zone or right click on your clock and choose adjust time/clock.

When you reinstalled windows it probably got set it to a default time zone that is not the same as yours and now it adjusts itself with internet time base on your time zone settings.



Hope that helps
