The time is alway 2 hours behind

by Magic-wand / September 26, 2017 9:14 PM PDT

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.

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.

- 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?

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.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
