    My OS = win2000proSP4.
    My PC clock isn't running correctly and I know about the many softwares that adjusts your PC clock via atomic clocks on the net. That's not the point.
    What I don't understand is why MS Windows doesn't do that. Am I missing something ?

    Even my cell phone Nokia 3100 doesn't have a radio controlled clock. How is that possible in the year 2005 After Christ ?

    Could be the battery on your mobo is shot so the system clock is not running like it should be. If you don't want to or don't know how to replace it, why not just use the atomic clock program as you mentioned?

    It's not the battery.
    Winter time and summer time are not adjusted.
    Radio-controlled clocks do adjust automatically when winter or summertime occurs.

    Now you have me confused. Are you talking about Daylight Savings Time?

    Winter time and summer time are not adjusted in my mobile phone Nokia 3100
    That is one problem, which I don't understand. My watch, I'm wearing does that why not a mobile phone.
    Do you consider that as NORMAL ? I don't.

    Showing the exact time on PC is another problem.
    Why do I need AGAIN another software to adjust my clock or is time not important at Microsoft.
    Again do you consider that as NORMAL ? I don't.

    I agree but things happen.

    What time server do you have your W2K client configured for to update the system clock? If it is time.windows.com that right there could be your problem.

    Do you have the Windows Time service running? Do you have port 123 closed on your pc? If so, check your firewall and make sure you have a rule for that to be allowed (if that is how you keep your system clock in sync).

    These are just some random thoughts here.

    HTH,

    ErikAlbert,

    You are very welcome. Please keep me (and all of us @ Wilders) posted. It may benefit others down the road who may have a similiar problem. I am still a bit confused regarding the Winter and Summer time you referred to, which is why I asked if it was DST related.

    In any event, I hope some of what I said can help you out.

    Regards,

    Jag
