Double click on the time display and adjust as necessary to 24 hour clock operation.

Try going to Regional Settings in Control Panel and selecting the Time Tab. If you use the Customise option you can set the time display format to your choice.

Regional Settings in Control Panel changes it to 24hour if thats how you like it

Control Panel - Regional & Language Settings – Click Time Tab – Time Format – change

common “h” to Capital “H” - Apply

In other words 12 hour clock “h:mm ss tt” 24 hour “H:mm ss tt”

By "all times state zero first" do you mean that the clock is at zero every time you reboot? If so, that indicates that the motherboard battery has expired and needs replacing.

Thanks €dstowe, no hard to explain bu clock only states zero before time ie 07.30 instead of 19.30, yet in the date & time properties it shows 19.30 but task bar shows 07.30

Check the Bios basic configuration settings, including the time format.

The instructions above for changing the time format, for XP are slightly wrong.

Control Panel - Regional & Language Settings – Click Customize next to top box.

A new window appears (Customise Regional Options) - Click Time Tab – modify as per instructions.
