My brain is simmering in vegetable oil today a bit mate and I can't remeber at the moment, but just replace it with the one that's in now.
Iwill say something alongs the lines of CR 3220 3V
I just replaced a laptop battery recently and that had a CR 1220 3V.

Have you checked whether your Windows Time service Automatically starts up?
Start->Run->services.msc
Check its status, and if not started up:
Scroll down to Windows Time and right-click Properties
Modify the Startup type to Automatic
Click Apply
Ok

Hi Lotus
Mine is auto configured but my battery needs replacing too, I just haven't got round to it.
Good info for the forum though.

Most are CR 2032 lithium 3v batteries, but if its changing in the manner you describe, I would suspect that your country is incorrectly set in the Time Zone and Windows Time is "correcting" it on that basis.
