Hi, I'm wondering why my system clock won't allow me to enter a URL to make it automatically update:


the "Automatically synchronize with an Internet time server" is disabled and grayed out
Is there a solution for this?

Thanks.

Hey, thanks for your reply.

I can't access the box -- it won't let me.

Howdy folks...

Avianca...

Off hand I'd say either you don't have user rights to change it, or the Time Service has stopped...

Click on Start - Run in the run box type in cmd - in the command prompt type in net start w32time, and see if the service will start or is allready started...

My account does have Administrator on it.

That's strange...

Right click on My Computer - Manage - Services and Applications - click on Services, and look for the Windows Time services, make sure that it is not Disabled, and is started, if it is not started, right click on it and start it...

Nope, don't see that either:

Your first post attachment shows that it has a check to Automatically synchronize with an Internet time server to set your time. time-b.nist.gov is a server in Gaithersburg, Maryland. If you are in a different time zone, you may need to change that.
Also, if you have a firewall running, it may be blocking the connection to the server.

I can't change anything, it will not let me. It wouldn't be a firewall because it's not letting me check the option.

Try this and see if it will register successfully.
Start> Run> type: regsvr32 w32time.dll then hit OK.

use either time.windows.com or time.nist.gov usually works. It may take a few hours to connect and set the time however.
