  • Hi,

     

    Please verify the Date and Time settings first. Ensure Time zone is correct, the computer is set to automatically synchronize with the Internet time Server.

     

    If all the settings are correct, please boot in BIOS and check the time there. An incorrect date/time after rebooting is usually the result of a discharged CMOS battery. This is a shiny button cell installed on the motherboard. You can contact computer manufacture for assistance.

     

    Best Regards,

    Niki

    I do agreewith the above, it does sound like it could be the battery on the mboard losing power and resetting bios settings. however can you also check the below registry file

     

    hkey-local-machine> system > current control set > services > w32time > paramters

    ensure ntpserver is set to time.windows.com

     

    unless it needs to be pointing elsewhere (another server?) for its time. if its a standalone comp should be fine to change this.

     

    reboot comp and go.
