I have recently built a new PC. For some reason the clock on it is gaining about 5 minutes a day.

What could be casuing this?

My XP clock never keeps time

I just switched it on and it said 4.50pm (its actually 6.25pm!!)

You can use web sychronisation with an internet clock. This seems to be a common problem with Windows.

My cock keeps the time all the time and its synchronised with Windows...

It has to be software that is changing the time. Disbale what you have to start when windows loads. The enable each one by one and you should find the culprit that is changing the time.

May be battery problem in the motherboard,but that i believe slows things down.

Reset your clock and if you normally play a regular game keep an eye on it.I know when daughter played snood it could easily lose 5 mins+.

Since it's a recent build there is no software on it yet, except for the essentials.

I use Chameleon Clock 3.01 to synchronize my clock on both of my PCs. There is nothing on my new PC that isn't on my old PC except for graphics card and motherboard drivers.

I'm at a loss to explain it.

It could be the battery then. As its a new build i wouldnt expect it to be. There is only way to find out...

I would have thought that the if the battery was dying that the clock would lose time not gain time.
