    Hi, For some reason my clock just stays around 1200 to 1 or 2pm...lol

    Even the date stays stuck

    It's completely screwing up anything with a task and I've reset it to the internet but no go always defaults to to 12-1 pm

    Any ideas

    I've ran sfc /scannow but fine, rebooted,

    Normally stopping time or being completely now centered would be fine for the timesurfer but it's really screwing up my comp...lol

    Any ideas guys :worthy:

    Its kind of ironic that your username is timesurfer and you have a whacky clock. Ever seen the move Groundhog Day ;)

    In all seriousness, it could be a software issue, or virus/Malware that executes the simple code:
    Code:
    Time 12:00
    Important:
    Does your computer change time when you're not in Windows? If you turn the computer off for say, 6 hours, and it reads 13:16 (say) when you turn it off, when you turn it on and enter the bios straight away, does it come up as 19:16? (or whatever time has elapsed since its turned off).

    If it comes up as 1200-1400ish like at the moment it would have to be a hardware fault. If the time is correct then its software. If it appears to be hardware, try clearing the CMOS by removing the battery, mains power, and let it sit for at least 20 mins (preferably), if it has a jumper-clear switch, definitely activate that. This will mean that you will have to set everything back up in the bios, including setting your drives to AHCI as motherboards often have IDE compatibility mode as the default.

    If its software and you can't find it, the only thing I could recommend is a fresh reinstall, and watch what programmes you install. I'm assuming you're using an antivirus, update it and do a full system scan. Also use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or Superantispyware, both fully updated, and do a fuil system scan with those. They will pick up a few things like tracking cookies, its the other things they could find thats the problem. Just note that with superantispyware you should disable the service and not have the programme automatically load with Windows, as they are only useful for the on-demand stuff, and thats only active with the registered version.

    I haven't tested the 6 hr thing. It just always is about 1 oclock pm and 10-14-10...lol Dude this is trippy but all my tasks run like all the time cause it always installs things at1pm...lol I did run scans and no problems. This only happened after I just reinstalled so maybe I'll just reinstall and see. Also the wireless doesn't turn on at start up so maybe your right the cmos battery is low or somethin hardware. I have v3000

    Later

    p.s. Maybe it isn't a glitch... Maybe it's the end of time as we know it and timesurfer just is feeling the first of it's affects on humanity...lol Stay tuned

    But your timesurfer should be no issue for you lol. Does your BIOS read the same time?

    Let me know how it goes if you do solve it. I've been picking at my brain for an answer but I just can't think of anything that would cause this. Maybe M$ is trolling you?

    To me real organic natural time is not duration based but this is getting ridiculous.
