Windows 10 (which I understand sync's with the Internet time server) is telling me it's 8:14pm. It's really 9:14pm. This is strange.

I turned off "set the time automatically", then turned it on again, and my time updated. But that's pretty strange.

Try checking your timezone and date is set correctly?

my time is set to automatically sync and is correct.



Forcing a Sync gives an expected time.

I had a similar issue to @Timmmay last night!  Turned on my surface running windows 10 and the time was like 2 days ago (which was the last time I shut it down) waited a while and it didn't update.  Checked timezone, region, language, etc, etc and all were correct. Turned off the "set the time automatically" then turned it back on and it updated correctly. Odd.

I am getting the same issue with my Surface Pro 3. I even contacted MS Support last week, who remoted in and had a poke around - changed the time manually, did a "clean start" and it seemed to sort the issue.

However switching on today, the machine was still reading the time/date when I last started it...

Frustrating!

I use the Gum'mint ones. Seems impressive:

The MSL NTP servers are dedicated servers running FreeBSD with the time controlled using a 1 pulse per second from the HP5071A caesium atomic clock which is part of the New Zealand time standard. The time in the servers is typically stable with respect to the time in the caesium clock around 1 microsecond but the variability in the network delays limit the accuracy in remote clocks.

msltime1.irl.cri.nz or msltime2.irl.cri.nz.
