It sounds like an April Fools doesn't it? It just showed up today. The clock keeps "losing time" on me. I almost could have posted this in the motherboard forum but for now maybe I'll get lucky on the software side: OS: Win 7 60 Pro Motherboard: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/MAXIMUS_VI_GENE/ Hardware will be 5 years old in November 2018. Problem just showed up today. No issues on the machine except this thankfully. So far I've done all of these things more than once: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...-my-time/6c01463d-a557-4964-a106-60232391a1cd https://www.lostwindowspassword.com/windows-7/windows-7-time-keeps-changing-randomly.html I just did this a couple of times: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...changing/9f902524-95f0-474f-bf72-211458355c54 ...they match but while I was doing this the time in the taskbar suddenly went backwards an hour on me...times still match... Power situation seems fine. I'm fairly certain I'm current on all of these things but I'll doublecheck. Clock is affected, not date. As of now I have manually set the clock and disabled Internet time sync. I don't want to get ahead of myself but just in case: If all else fails the final issue that keeps coming up is called "CMOS Battery Failure" I know my MB wants a CR2032 Lithium. I don't want to jump the gun on that unless I'm absolutely sure so I'd like help here to rule things out and also what to expect IF this ends up being a battery failure. Changing that battery looks pretty direct and easy if it ends up being that. I'm assuming I'm going to lose BIOS settings with the battery change if this is the way it goes? That's bad luck. In 30 some odd years of computing I've never seen that before but I guess there's a first time for everything. Let me know what you all think... questions, ideas, troublehshooting...anything I've missed? Thanks all!
