clock won't sync

    Question

  • I don't know why but my Windows 7 has been unable to sync its clock for quite awhile now.  It will correctly sync when I go in and ask it to sync with the servers.  However it won't do this on it's own.  Even when I check automatically sync.  Moreover when i start windows the time is usually off even after I have synced during the last boot.

  • Hi,

    Any messages prompted? Check the event viewer for more related information. Does this issue only occur with this specific computer? Regarding to the server, did you mean a Internet time server like time.windows.com or a server setup by yourself (company) in a domain?
    Make sure the Windows Time Service is running.
    Or you can re-register Time service by the following commands
    net stop w32time
    w32tm /unregister
    w32tm /register
    net start w32time

    If you're part of a domain, see this link
