    Re: Windows 8 computer shows incorrect date and time

    Actually changing date and time in any version of windows is like eating cakes. Anyone can easily do that. If you haven't done it earlier then double click on the date and time and make necessary changes.You will find it in the bottom right part of your taskbar. You can also do the same through Control Panel>>Clock, Language and Region>>Click on Date and Time. Just make changes to it and enjoy. If you are noticing wron time and date all the time after restarting your computer then either your CMos battery is faulty or you have selected wrong time zone in windows 8.

    Re: Windows 8 computer shows incorrect date and time

    Dear Friend...

    Adjusting date and time in any Windows OS is like eating sweet.
    When we install the OS, we get the time and date option over there and we choose the right date and time but later, when installation has been finished, the date and time sometimes get changed automatically.
    For this, there is nothing to do something extra ordinary.
    Simply go where you see date and time and pres double click over there.
    After that, date and time option has been open, choose GMT +5:30 which is an Indian schedule or whatever you want.
    Once you do this, you time automatically shows you right schedule and the issue has been resolved now.

    Thank you...

    Follow these steps one by one, you will correct your problem.

    Since when are you facing the issue?
    Do you have any third party security program installed on the computer?
    What happens when you try resetting the time?



    1. Go to the Start Screen, Right-click to get the "All Apps" icon in the lower right of the screen, and click it.

    2. Select "Control Panel"

    3. From Control Panel, navigate to "System and Security" >> "Clock, Language, and Region" >> "Date and Time"

    4. Click the "Internet Time" tab, and change the server to "time.nist.gov", then click update.

    5. Check if the correct time is displayed with the "auto DST option"

    happy to help you
