Question My computer cllock runs fast

How come? I reset it about once every 2 weeks, when I notice that it's about 20 minutes fast.....

It's a new Dell running Windows XP...


What the deal?

They'll warranty-replace that keyboard if it's still under warranty. As far as the time thing, are you on a LAN with a server? XP will automatically sync the system clock if there is a server on your LAN that provides a time service. If that's the case you need to correct the time on the server and the time on your box will sort itself out. Otherwise you can go to this website and download the software to keep your system time synched with the US Atomic Clock: http://boulder.nist.gov/timefreq/service/its.htm
