    Clocks keep stopping when PC is closed

    I have 3 clocks including the Taskbar clock. Every time I close my PC all 3 stopped so on re-boot I have to start them again, in Settings. This happens with all the option, Sleep, Hibernate, Restart, Shutdown. I have never experienced this before, what do I need to do to keep the clocks running? I have tried both automatic and manual Settings.

  3. Window 10- clock time losing when shut off

    Hi Umasankar,

    An outdated system setting is possibly causing the system clock to desynchronize. That being said, I suggest synchronizing your system clock with an Internet server. Make sure that you're signed in as the administrator before performing the steps below.

    1. Click the Start button and type Command
    2. Right-click Command Prompt and then select
      Run as administrator
    3. If prompted, choose Yes or enter the administrator password.
    4. Type the command below and then press Enter after each command.
      • net start w32time
      • w32tm /resync
    5. Close Command Prompt and restart your PC.

    PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
