I am having to reset my clock as it gains over two minutes every 24 hours.

Sounds about right--pc's tell the time but quartz watch they are not!!!!

There is a conection to a world clock site, you can set from Control Pannel, date & time, internet time.

click here Will update your time as often as you want, XP does it by default weekly. It does a small registry change. (I'ts in XP Fixes, file is Internet Time).

If you double click on the time (if you have XP) on the Task Bar and then click on the Internet Time tab you can update from time.windows.com

It can also be set to do it automatically if you wish.

If it gets worse, your motherboard battery is on the way out.

Thank you for all your offerings:
The Spires - I will give that a go.

Stuartli - I am doing that about 3 times a day now

ELECTRON99 - It is a new board and I am currently running the machine 24/7.
Will a low battery charge affect the time even if the computer is running?

The drain on the battery is minute, which is why they last so long.

I've never had to replace one, for instance, since 1996 when I bought my own first major system (a Time Pentium 100!) rather than use laptops etc from work.
