Question

The time is alway 2 hours behind

I don't know why the computer time is always 2 hours behind the real time when the system is turned on.

The system is Windows 10 Home(upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium retail version) and the time is not synchronized with internet time.

Time

Does the bios show the correct time?
Is the time zone set correct?
Why is it not sync with the internet?

The BIOS has no problem

The time zone is set correctly, even if not, it doesn't make any difference since the system time is not synchronized with internet time.

I used to adjust the time of my watch, clock, cellphone...etc a little bit faster than they are. Therefore, I do not want to set the window time synchronizing with internet.

I need to make the correction every time when the computer is turned on. I just didn't know why. It is mysterious.

Re: BIOS

- You didn't answer the first question.
- What happens if you set the time zone in Windows 2 zones eastward? It's 2 hours later there?

Answer
time zone issue

Try checking your time zone, this is the most common solution for this problem.

The BIOS's time is correct but probably altered by the OS...

The time zone is set to EST, the same as my other computer(Windows 10 pro retail version), but the latter doesn't have this issue.
