The fact that it's happening could indicate a problem. I've heard of this prob with certain antivirus utils and I think also with Power Management. Try disabling the antivirus and power management features - does the problem still occur?

Could also be that your CMOS battery is going.

Norton AV has a patch for the time but I can't find it right now but know there is one.

Do you have Norton AV?


Some say setting the time in the bios helps.

Savvys looks good, here is another : http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0-3356748-100-1550358.html?tag=st.dl.10000-103-1.lst-7-1.1550358

It will set the
system clock whenever you connect to the net, or at predetermined times, then exit. I have a relatively new Compaq that has always lost time, but only a few seconds a day, system checks say there is no problem, so I d/l this program, problem gone, always have the correct time now, Savvy's and mine are both FREE, so just a couple options...Rhett
