Make sure the correct time is displayed in the BIOS.
If you have a desktop PC, you may have to replace the
motherboard battery with a new one.

It may be that the battery that powers your CMOS needs replacement. The CMOS
is the name of the chip on your motherboard that includes, among other
things, your computer's clock.

Before anyone whose clock is running slow rushes out to buy a new
battery, he should first take note of whether he is losing time
while the computer is running or while it's powered off. If it's
while powered off, the problem *is* very likely the battery. But
if it's while running, it can *not* be the battery, because the
battery isn't used while the computer is running.

If the clock loses time while running, try this:

Open a command prompt window (Start | Run | cmd) and enter the
following commands:

net stop w32time

w32tm /unregister

w32tm /register

net start w32time

I'm having the same time issue. The difference is, my machine is very new, and I've just installed windows 8. Since I rarely turn this machine off, I'm certain that the CMOS battery isn't the issue. Prior to loading Windows 8 the machine kept time well. I've flashed the bios and updated the drivers per the manufactures Windows 8 updates, and the clock still runs about 15 minutes per hour slow.

I tried the "net stop w32time" routine, but got an "access denied" error message.

Is there a newer version of this fix?
