Unable to synchronise time

Just recently all I get when I attempt to do this is an error message saying Windows was unable....

Also, although this system has been running for two and a half years, when I open the Internet Time box I get the following:

'Windows has never attempted to synchronize with an internet time server.'

Whilst this is not a really serious problem I am concerned that it is symptomatic of a more serious problem so any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I'm going to tick the box.

If anybody else is having this problem try putting this in the box:

a.ntp.alphazed.net

It worked first time which suggests there is something wrong with the other two.

I have been having the same problem for a while now. Thanks for the new time server address, it worked first time for me too. There was a topic posted a few days ago regarding this, I will put a link in that topic so that people can click on it and come to this post.Thanks for the help, it has been much appreciated.

Just tried. My 'windows failed to synchronise...' error remains. An external time app, SymmTime, works perfectly

Just to update this topic. I found this list of Internet Time servers,

You can access a server using the IP address directly, for example if you have difficulty when using the server name.
