Time error on Windows 10 is quite a problem many users encounter, this is more common for computers and laptops installing new operating system or after updating Windows 10 . Besides, there are some other reasons that I will mention in this article.
By default, Windows will take over the time synchronization function on the computer with Microsoft server, so the time is always correct. However, if your computer always displays the wrong time even though you have adjusted it many times, you need other solutions to solve it thoroughly.
Wrong time on PC & Laptop computers can lead to many other problems, for example you will not be able to access websites with SSL certificates (ie https at the top of the site) or even not on Facebook and Gmail too.
Here I will point out the causes and remedies of time errors on Windows 10 computers, please try to see how it works.
1. Due to wrong time zone settings
Step 3 . You can also set the time synchronization with Microsoft servers if the computer is connected to the internet by going to Settings => clicking on Region & Languege => Date, time & regional formattings (as shown below).
The new interface Clock and Region appears, then click on the Set the time and date option (as shown below).
New window appears, you switch to Internet Time => tab and then click on Change settings … (as shown below).
A window will appear, click on Synchronise with an Internet time server => then click Update now (as shown below) and the time synchronization process with Microsoft server will start.
After the process is complete, click OK to finish.
2. Cause of CMOS Battery
This is the most frequent cause of false display time errors on most PC and laptop computers, not just Windows 10. Especially for computers that have been used for a long time, have a high battery life.
CMOS batteries are a power source for active CMOS chips and ensure that the chip works, storing data even when the computer is turned off, so that the CMOS battery is designed right on the motherboard (mainboard). of computer.
Data that CMOS stores is mainly information about system configuration, including information about time and date. Therefore, once the CMOS battery is weak, it will lead to disruption of information, even loss of information and the righteous consequence is the wrong time on a Windows 10 computer.
In this case, we need to replace the CMOS battery. This is quite simple, you just go to the computer store and ask to buy a new CMOS battery to bring back. Next, turn off the computer, remove the computer cover and find the location of the CMOS battery and replace it on the mainboard. If you use a laptop , this job is a bit more difficult, but often the computer is too old to get this error, so you just go ahead and scratch it.
After you have completed the CMOS battery, re-assemble the machine (if you’ve removed something) and boot up the computer.
