By default, Windows will take over the time synchronization function on the computer with Microsoft server, so the time is always correct. However, if your computer always displays the wrong time even though you have adjusted it many times, you need other solutions to solve it thoroughly.
Wrong time on PC & Laptop computers can lead to many other problems, for example you will not be able to access websites with SSL certificates (ie https at the top of the site) or even not on Facebook and Gmail too.
Here I will point out the causes and remedies of time errors on Windows 10 computers, please try to see how it works.
1. Due to wrong time zone settings
2. Cause of CMOS Battery
This is the most frequent cause of false display time errors on most PC and laptop computers, not just Windows 10. Especially for computers that have been used for a long time, have a high battery life.
CMOS batteries are a power source for active CMOS chips and ensure that the chip works, storing data even when the computer is turned off, so that the CMOS battery is designed right on the motherboard (mainboard). of computer.
Data that CMOS stores is mainly information about system configuration, including information about time and date. Therefore, once the CMOS battery is weak, it will lead to disruption of information, even loss of information and the righteous consequence is the wrong time on a Windows 10 computer.
After you have completed the CMOS battery, re-assemble the machine (if you've removed something) and boot up the computer.
3. Cause due to system time - Windows Time
