Computer clock

with this new daylight savings time deal going on I have manually changed my clock to be an hour forward, and within an hour its set back an hour.. the minutes are staying accurate but it just doesnt want to change to be an hour forward.. Any ideas???


Because one of these days I will forget that the clock is all messed up then I will end up staying at work an hour LATE..

edit---i am running XP (that is probably the problem..lol..)

Re: Computer clock

make sure your clock says "Pacific Daylight Time" for the region....if not, the DST patch has not been applied....

Re: Computer clock

Check the clock running on your CMOS... change if necessary.

Re: Computer clock

You may also be setup to auto update your system time based off the server clock. If the server clock has not auto advanced then your system clock will be inaccurate. It may also be that your CMOS clock is inaccurate causing Win XP to set its time to that.

I fortunately don't have to deal with it on my work computer and I could careless if my home computer is wrong.

Re: Computer clock

Mine crashed and blew up, it was Y2K all over again.

But I did fill up my bath tub with water and have a house full of canned goods just incase.

I doubt it's a problem with a server; when your computer grabs the server's time it'll do it in UTC, totally oblivious to the daylight saving time changes. If you have your time zone set correctly or haven't patched your machine it may calculate the UTC offset incorrectly, however.
