If you have the habit of peeping into your Windows clock often between your work, you surely would have noticed that your Windows clock seems to be falling behind quite often, being up to 20 minutes behind and then at some other point going back to being correct. This might seem to be a very trivial issue but is very irritating, especially to those who rely greatly on their computer’s clock. If your computer clock loses time, although you keep fixing it, it implies that there are some serious causes behind these Vista problems and it should be fixed at the earliest.
The issues with your Windows clock can manipulate in number of ways. For instance, in the Control Panel, if you use the “Date/Time” tool to select a different year, the clock might stop until you select “OK” or “Apply”. Also most often you would have also noticed that the Windows clock lose about 5 to 10 seconds of time if you use the “Time/Date” tool to choose a new month or date. There is a method to fix these Vista problems and get your Windows clock running right, here’s how;
Instructions to amend Vista problems with Windows Clock
- On the lower left hand corner of your Windows desktop, you can see the Windows “Start” button, or in Vista, instead of Start button, you’ll have ‘Windows logo’ icon, click on it.
- Near to the bottom of the “Start” menu, on the right hand side of the window, there is “Control Panel”, simply click on it.
- The new window that opens should be in “Classic mode”, to make sure it opens in Classic mode for your Window Vista operating system, click on “Classic View” in the upper left-hand corner of the window.
- Spot the icon entitled “Date and Time” and click on it. As the icons are listed in alphabetical order, “Date and Time” icon should be listed in the first couple of rows.
- When the “Date and Time” window opens, click on the “Date and Time” tab. Select the button that says “Change Date and Time”. Into the clock that appears, enter in the proper time and select “OK.”
Your faulty Windows Clock should be fixed to display the correct time.
