Losing time in 98

By stephied ·
Lately, I have been 6-7 minutes off in 98. I have 1) replaced the battery 2)not logged into network 3)unloaded all startups 4)only loaded system.ini 5)flashed the bios and am still having problems. After I changed the battery, it kept time for 7 hours until I rebooted, then it was 6 minutes off again. Before, it didn't seem like I had to reboot for the time to be off. I am not logging into a server which changes my time. Safe mode made time come up ok. Any suggestions?

Just throwing this out, if you have a internet connection (not modem) and somewhere along the lines installed software to set the time from some offical time keeping place, this could cause a reset of your time. (We had a guy here who did that and complained his time was always off, and his watch was 10 mins fast!).

The logging on to the network worked for one of us, but not me. He was keeping time by the server. I still haven't figured my problem out. I can go into safe mode and time is correct. I've unloaded everything from startup and on a normal boot, time is still off. May have to live with it until the next re-install. Thanks.

So, did you figure it out?
