Time Loss issue

By dcoyle ·
Trader had brand new laptop (Fujitsu B series); lost time on clock (which can drastically affect trades); suspected CMOS battery, even though it's a new laptop. Gave him another brand new laptop (same model). Still loses time on his clock (aboout 1/2 mins per day). Has Tardis software on it which is supposed to sync up time with servers, etc. Have turned it on and off - to no avail. Software has same settings which another trader has, which has never had time problems.
Hard to believe it is CMOS now, but will probably try another laptop anyway...

Very confused. Anything I could try? Any help appreciated?

I currently sync my time with National Institute of Standards and Technology. They have software wich does it over the internet or a dialup.
Use this url - http://www.boulder.nist.gov/timefreq/service/its.htm

This is for the software - be sure to remove all spaces in the url

(1) Both Norton Antivirus and McAfee Antivirus have had issues with diddling the clock. Check the web site if you have one of these installed. (2) If the clock is not getting reset, it is possible that some program has an operation pending so thatthe clock is in use at the time. I have seen "Scheduled Tasks" do this when it is unable to start a task or a task it has started has hung up.

yes I think this is correct. McAfee crap upsetting things. I uninstalled the unnecessay Mcafee stuff, but left the a/v.
Seems ok now.
