computer clock

man everytime i look down at my computer clock it is always slower than the 3 other clocks that are in my room. I always set it to the same as the others and it always ends up slow. Why does it do this? I usually always keep the computer on.

You may need to change out the battery on your motherboard.

how long does it take to fall three minutes behind.. a day or two? a month or two?

either way.. id say the cmos battery too.

What OS and do you have other computers on your LAN? Windows XP will sync its clock to any server that's broadcasting a time stamp, automatically. When my clock at home kept changing on me, I ultimately found that my server's clock was slightly different and that's what was causing it.

More than likely it is the CMOS battery though.
