My Windows Clock Won't Sync


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:

    W32tm /register

    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.
