Clock sync errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have an old Dell SmartPC 100N which I put a new HDD in and used the Dell Reinstallation cd for Windows xp. Booted up OK.

    Hooked up to internet and downloaded all updates. Validation failed with clock sync error - confirmed by Microsoft diags. Tried the internet time servers to no avail - still said that pc clock was massively out of date. Visually the time was seconds wiithin the correct time. Still failed with clock sync error . Tried atomic clock sync and windows and windows validated!!

    Installed SP3, and validate failed with clock sync error again!

    The PC time is still visually correct. Atomic clock sync run again but windows refuses to validate with clock sync error
