    I thought the time was taken from the BIOS which was regularly updated from the Internet?

    it was set to sync of windows time server, but i have tried turning that off but it still seems to slowly creep forward, in a few hours it has gained 10mins, is the mobo battry dying, it's only a few months old, or something more severe?

    LOL that was funny, but dosen't solve my problem smiley, so heres how it's done, restart the xp machine which has been running for 7 days straight and has been updated from windows update, and it fixed, no need for anything to blow up, or to buy a watch
