    The Time is wrong after reboot Win11


    Every time I start my PC the time shown is wrong by 1 hour. If i tell windows to synchronize the clock, then it adjusts to the correct time. but having to do so is annoying. Is there a way to fix this?

    :)

    Windows Displays Wrong time after every reboot

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate your effort on this. As you have mentioned that the Windows Time Service is set to Manual and sometimes is switched off, I suspect this could be an issue with the Windows Time Service. I suggest you to refer the steps mentioned below:



    Method 1: Re-register Windows Time DLL file



    I suggest you to try re-registering the Windows Time dll file and check if that helps in resolving the issue:



    1. Type Command Prompt in the search bar on the
      Taskbar.
    2. Right click on Command Prompt icon and select
      Run as administrator.
    3. Type regsvr32 w32time.dll and hit
      Enter.
    This will re-register the dll files for Windows Time service and will help you sync the time.



    Method 2: Re-register Windows Time process



    The Windows Time file (W32tm.exe) is used to configure the Windows time service settings. Re-registering the service will run the time service as a service and adds the default configuration to the registry.



    1. Type Command Prompt in the search bar on the
      Taskbar.
    2. Right click on Command Prompt icon and select
      Run as administrator.
    3. Type the following commands one-by-one and hit
      Enter
      :
    • net stop w32time
    • w32tm /unregister
    • w32tm /register


    Method 3: Sync Time using command prompt



    You can use command prompt to sync Windows time. Follow the steps mentioned below:



    1. Type Command Prompt in the search bar on the
      Taskbar.
    2. Right click on Command Prompt icon and select
      Run as administrator.
    3. Type the following commands one-by-one and hit
      Enter
      :
    • net stop w32time
    • w32tm /unregister
    • w32tm /register
    • net start w32time
    • w32tm /resync


    If the issue persists, you may have to check the CMOS battery, which is responsible to store the Time. As you have mentioned that you bought a new laptop, I wonder it could be under warranty, so I suggest you to get in touch with the manufacturer of
    the computer or place of purchase and get the battery replaced.



    Regards,

    Windows time keeps resetting to a wrong time

    Hi,

    For us to isolate your concern with your Windows Time, we would like to know the follow:

    • To make sure that we have not missed on anything, may we know what are those troubleshooting steps you have taken to resolve the issue?
    • Have you tried checking the CMOS battery? It provides power to the Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) chip. This chip stores information about the system configuration, including the date and time. If no, we suggest that you replace the battery.

    We look forward to your response.
