Can someone please help me figure out why my computer is displaying the wrong time?
I’ve just set up a new computer for the first time with Windows 8.1. On install I chose the relevant time zone (UTC +12:00 Auckland, Wellington).
I have noticed that upon completion of the installation, my clock is now showing 1:07PM when the time is actually 2:11PM (an hour slow). Because it is showing an hour difference I suspected it could be a daylight saving issue.
What I’ve done to try and fix the problem:
I went into Control Panel/Date and Time and verified the Time Zone was correct according to what I first entered it. It is definitely still (UTC+12:00) Auckland, Wellington. It is set to go forward on the 28th of September for Daylight Savings.
I also checked the Internet Time, it set to automatically synchronize time.windows.com server. However just to make sure I updated this manually but the time is still wrong.
I know I could change the time manually, but I’m hesitating to do that because I want to know exactly why the clock display is wrong in the first place. It seems like a simple problem but I’ve checked all the usual places and I can’t see anything wrong.
Your help to fix the problem would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
