    A bit more information would be useful to be honest. Are you running this XP machine as a stand alone or on a domain? Are you trying to set the time manually, trying to sync with your DC or are you trying to sync with a time server over the net?

    Try and set the date and time in the BIOS / CMOS ( Normally pressing F2 or DELETE ( not backspace ) whilst the computer is powering on. If it keeps forgetting the date / time then may need / require a new cmos battery

    What happens when you set the time? Does it not keep it?

    If the computer is not keeping the time, the battery on the motherboard could be dead.

    Please can a MOD rename this thread?

    Thanks

    I would have expected a message at POST regarding a CMOS battery issue, but the intial post was fairly sketchy on details
