DESKTOP SYSTEM CLOCK - TIME OCCASIONALLY WRONG AT SYSTEM STARTUP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there

    I was just wondering if anyone else has had a problem with the WINDOWS 8.1 system clock?

    Since making the upgrade from WINDOWS 8 to 8.1, I've had issues where the time displayed on system clock is wrong at System Startup.

    This only seems to happen occasionally - I leave the system off overnight, switch this on in the morning - and the time will be wrong on the WINDOWS 8 start screen (It's normally out by around 3-4hrs - ie I normally power up around 0700, and the clock will show a time of around 0400)

    I log in to my account, and force a manual sync with the time.windows.com server - this adjusts my time - and it will be okay for the rest of the day. As I say, the issue seems to happen when the system is left off overnight (For around 8hr or thereabouts) - so I am wondering if this is indeed something to do with WINDOWS 8.1, or there's another cause to this.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for reading this.

    Regards

    Alex

  • Hi,

    According to your description, this issue probably caused by driver problem. Please try to upgrade your BIOS and motherboard driver to be latest for test.

    Be warned: Flashing BIOS is a risky process.  If power is interrupted during the update your machine will be rendered unusable.

    In addition, How about after you shutdown computer and leave it alone for a long time? Did this problem would occurred?

  • I have the same problem with the system clock. It only started after I upgraded from Windows 8.0 to 8.1.  The device is an Asus Vivotab Smart tablet.  My BIOS and all drivers are up to date.
