My brand new Dell computer has the wrong time in the system tray. I have checked to make sure that I am in the correct time zone, (pacific time), but it is two hours off. Can I fix this myself or do I have to call Dell? Thank you:mad:

Hello and Welcome!
Have you tried setting the clock in BIOS?
Then re-set it on the task bar, double check the time zone again and set it to syncronize automactially.

Our their risks in resetting the BIOS? This is a new computer and I would hate to invalidate my warranty?

There aren't any risks in only resetting the clock in BIOS, but if you aren't familiar with navigating there then yes, it might be best to call Dell Tech support to avoid anything happening that might void your warranty. Has the time always been wrong or is this a new thing?

Another suggestion that 'may' help... Go back to adjust time/date.. switch the time zone to a different one.. set the clock.. click apply and ok... then repeat those steps by changing back to the correct time zone and time for you.. I've had that work on occasion.. worth a shot.. :)
