I've had to adjust the time 3 times today -- I keep losing time on my computers clock -- WTF? Anyone know what the problem is and how I could fix it?

look on downloads.com for a timekeeper

it'll log into a military time server as many times a day as you tell it to, and change your computers time accordingly.

OK -- I'm sitting here with the clock open, and watching the seconds tick by, and maybe 1 second passes for every 4 or 5 seconds in real time.

WTF is going on here??

As I know it, Windows takes the clock from your BIOS.. try replacing the battery, it does not matter if its a new motherboard or not.

<snooty voice> well, my XP downloads the right time off an atomic clock through the internet once a week, so it is always precisely right.</snooty voice>

So if it is "always precisely right", why does it have to download the correct time every week?

Don't bother..it's probably not the battery. Some programs eff up the clock somehow. A month ago I was losing 10 minutes a day but I uninstalled some or other and now it's fine.

Another thing with XP... if I double click on an mp3 file, it gets renamed and the file basically becomes unusable.. what the fuck is that? If I didn't spend so much time setting this fucker up, I'd say fuck it.

Strange ... just last week I noticed that my computer clock lost an hour or something... that has never happened before with this computer...

You would think that with all these high powered processors we have now, that they would be able to keep accurate time for shits sake...

downloaded a timekeeper yesterday -- dimension 4 -- pretty good, runs in background (no icon on taskbar or anything) and I have it updating the time every 10 minutes. it's regaining about 55 seconds back each time it updates.

55 seconds every ten minutes? JIHAD ON BILL GATES!
