losing time??/

By stroffoleno ·
I have a box running Win98 that loses time only on the weekend. I set it on monday last week and it was fine all week untill today it was almost 25 minutes slow. It did the same last weekeknd too. Anyone have an idea as to what it may be? I am stumped....thanks

During the weekend do you connect remotely to a network, say your work network?
Does it run a net logon script?
That might explain why your computer is loosing time.
Part of a net logon script can be a time set to update the client computer with the server's time.

Good Luck!

You say you set it last Monday and today (Monday) it had lost 25 minutes. Do you turn it off over the weekend? It could be a sign that your battery is running down. A dead giveaway would be if you were losing CMOS settings too, but I've seen one without th eother.
