The Windows time service allows you to synchronize your computer's system time with a server on your network or a public time server on the Internet. If the service does not synchronize, you must re-register and synchronize the time on your computer. This is accomplished using the Windows command line utility.
Click the Windows "Start" button. Type "cmd" into the search text box and press "Enter." This opens the Windows command line.
Type the following text into your prompt:
Press "Enter." This registers the Windows service so that it runs each time you boot the computer.
Set up the time server. If you are on a local network, use the following command to re-register with your network server:
w32tm /resync /rediscover
If you want to manually set up a server, use the following syntax:
w32tm /resync /computer:computer
Replace "computer" with the server you want to use as your time server.
Double-click the clock icon in your system tray. Change the time to an invalid value. Wait several minutes. The system clock will automatically update to your server's value.
