APM is known to do this, turn off "Advanced Power Management" in your BIOS.
Also, some screen savers screw up the clock. Take out all your bells and whistles and have a better life.
Get this, in some situations, the system updates the clock when you shut the system down. Meaning the CPU was keeping time, and it thinks it's such a good little time keeper, it corrects (the CORRECT) time for you, how nice huh?
You have to ask, what the hell were those geeks thinking? You have a perfectly good hardware clock, and some OS geek thinks it will be cool to have the CPU keep time.
Well, if this happens because you leave your system on all day / week, then you get the idea. You should always boot win98 (or 95 yuck) daily. That should be on the front cover of every box "this OS is not done yet, we havn't figured out how to write a better OS, so please boot it daily. For better results, please boot this OS three or more times a day, thank you".
: I have noticed recently that my internal clock is starting to run very slow (Its lost about 10 hours in the last month) I have set it in the BIOS setup, but it soon starts losing time. My machine is an AMD 233, running win95.
: Could the problem get more serious?
: Any advice much appreciated
