my mother board is only 6 months old but the clock ( XP pro ) is very erractic and sometimes will lose time very clickly. Any ideas? thanks.

Does it lose time when the computer is switched off or on? If it loses when switched off, it's probably the cmos battery that needs replacing.

I did not set up XP on my new machine, but I have no doubt that someone will help you, as I watched the engineer who delivered the machine click on somewhere to tell the machine to keep time with an online clock. I will have a look round and see if I can find the setting, but someone will almost certainly beat me to it.

FOUND IT. Control panel/Date and time/Internet clock. Let me know if you find it OK.

double click on the time in the taskbar and select the internet time tab and choose the location you want. also next time you boot up go into the bios and reset the time there.

A CMOS battery should not need replacing after just six months.

This would do the trick, Atomic Clock. It's free from click here
