Slow System Clock
« on: October 24, 2004, 04:39:56 pm »
I've been noticing that my system clock has been going slow and it is now almost 10 minutes behind the actual time. I trouble-shooted this thru Microsoft and I was told that overusage of non-Microsoft music playback programmes might cause the clock to slow. Obvious as Winamp is running almost constantly. So I look at solutions and it says:

'Don't use non-Microsoft music playback programmes.'

Sod that!! I'm not just gonna stop listening to Winamp. I want a real solution not just avoidance tactics.

Does anyone know how I can reset my system clock without going to extremes?




No more history lesson, 'cos I had to delete about 4 posts because Gaijin told me to. :(

EDIT: Heh, just noticed that he didn't tell me to do anything. It was just Fallout's suggestion. Ah, well. No loss really.

Actually, I think it may be more to do with no one having anything to talk about.

It kinda goes around in cycles. For about a week nothing much happens, but then the next week a load of subjects appear as different issues are discussed and the effects of these last about 2 more weeks until they fade out and we return to a quiet week.

Oh well, Machinae should be giving us Legion of Stoopid at some point...

maybe just having those Pie cover songs recorded would supress your new song need??

You misunderstand. Posting is ok. Even pointless threads I can live with. But idiotic spamming of threads that actually contain information.. is not OK.
Oi, is this when I get a huge sig-image, start whining about "moar sid" and make nonsensical arguments to no good?

Ok.
Go here,
http://www.worldtimeserver.com/
Click at the top "  atomic clock sync" Download the program

I've use this program before and it keeps your windows clock synced with the proper time. Althought it sounds like your bios battery might have carcked it. Maybe

...or if you use Win2k/XP you can use the built in timesync feature. Doubleclick on the taskbar clock and select the register "internet time". The server is set to Microsoft's evil spy server of doom, but I guess you can just enter any other time server - e.g. the one chompy suggested.
