Reasons Why Computer is Not Giving Correct Time? [quick fix]


If you are a computer dependent person like me, then wrong time/date can lead you to a pathetic situation. In this article i have tried to jolt down possible causes and how fix them. Now the question arises why windows computer display wrong time/date.

Possible Causes and Ways to Fix Them


 1  
        CMOS Battery

Alternatively referred to as a Real-Time Clock (RTC), Non-Volatile RAM (NVRAM) or CMOS RAM, CMOS is short for Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor. CMOS is an on-board, battery powered semiconductor chip inside computers that stores information. This information ranges from the system time and date to system hardware settings for your computer.  The standard lifetime of a CMOS battery is around 10 Years. However, this can vary depending on the use and environment in which the computer resides.
If the battery fails, the system settings, date, and time will not be saved when the computer is turned off until it has been replaced.



 2  
Incorrect Time Zone
incorrect time zone can can be set correctly by Right-clicking the system clock in your taskbar and select > Adjust date/time > Change time zone
Computer is Not Giving Correct Time

 3    
Virus/Malware
There is nothing to do much, except Checking your Computer with Antivirus Program and update your windows. 

Quick Fixes

 1  
Synchronize Your Time To A Time Server

You can adjust your time/date with widows time server.
Right-clicking the system clock in your taskbar and select > Adjust date/time > Internet time

 2    
Use internet Browser
Now this option is just for seeing what is the actual/current time. With this you cannot alter windows time/date. But this can remind you about current date, each time you  open your internet Brower Search Google for your place's current time, like one in the picture below, and copy the url from the address bar and set it as home page of your browser.

Three years back when LED Screen of my Nokia X2-01 got damaged without showing any prior symptoms, i knew that the bill is going to be heavy. So, out of fear i kept that aside and used a Nokia 3110c (which i Previously have)instead. One day it happened that a friend of mine visited me after a long time. He enquire about my X2-01, i related him the whole story. Then he showed me his phone and it was same Nokia X2-01 model, after that he asked me to have a look at the LED screen of it. As i did i found nothing unusual and asked him what he was trying to show me? then he said that he replaced the screen all by himself and LED cost under INR 250. Now to be honest i didn't know any online store to sell LED screen in such cheap rate.
 But People of Kolkata must know about this place called Chandni Chawk market which is famous for selling all kind of electrical and electronics items.


 In one word it is mecca for any Electronics Geek or Hobbyist or even engineer.
There i found LED screen in such a cheap rate, but i didn't know about its manufacturer.

Now with this Video will be able to replace Led screen of Nokia X2-01 by yourself


You can search google for these terms Nokia x2-01 lcd screen price for buying LED screen online.

Starting March 23, 2015, users won't be able to publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Google's Blogger.

Google is cracking the whip on blogs with Adult contents, Starting March 23, 2015, you won't be able to publicly share images and videos that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Blogger.

According to Search Giant "If your existing blog does have sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video, your blog will be made private after March 23, 2015. No content will be deleted, but private content can only be seen by the owner or admins of the blog and the people who the owner has shared the blog with."

 The new policy also states "If you’d rather take your blog down altogether, you can export your blog as a .xml file or archive your blog's text and images using Google Takeout."
 A Google spokesperson said, “We’ve updated our policy to fall in line with our policies across Google’s hosted products (including products like YouTube or Google+). So starting March 23, 2015, you won’t be able to publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Blogger.

The exceptions to this policy caution users from using "Blogger as a way to make money on adult content. For example, don't create blogs that contain ads for or links to commercial porn sites." "We’ll still allow nudity if the content offers a substantial public benefit. For example, in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts."

Stop A Program From Getting Updates In Windows

stop a program from updating



Well, if you are a owner of a slow speed mobile broadband like me, then you must hate the word "UPDATE" as i do. Whenever you update some program a lot of data is consumed along with speed and time. But for others i could recommend update things regularly, because with new update previous bugs are fixed along with new added features (sometimes). There is another reason not to update. Software used illegally without buying can be blocked when updated. But who cares! if you use below technique then there is no chance of a program getting updates also with this you will be able to block any program from connecting to internet.


Steps to stop a program from updating


 1   
There are two ways to to do this, one with Windows firewall and Antivirus firewall.
I will start with windows firewall. now, it may happen that when you have installed an antivirus it take hold of the windows firewall and you have only one option left that is to configure  firewall section of your Antivirus. for this see "Using Antivirus Firewall" after step8



 2  
Open Control panel, then System and Security
control panel stop a program from updating
 3    
    Click to enter  Windows Firewall

stop a program from updating


 4    
     Click on the Advance Settings as indicated the picture
advance setting Stop a program from updating

 5    
This is the Windows Firewall Menu, few things needed to be clear i.e what is Inbound/outbound rule?
can you see those in left hand side.

Inbound Rules: These are to do with other things accessing your computer. If you are running a Web Server on your computer then you will have to tell the Firewall that outsiders are allowed to connect to it.

Outbound Rules: With these you can set which programs use the Internet, and Block others. You will want to let your Web Browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera...) have access to the Internet, so you will tell Windows Firewall that it's allowed.

now click on Outbound Rule on left
Firewall menu stop a program from updating

 6    
   As you can see, you need to add new program to this list click New Rule on right
firewall outbound stop a program from updating

 7    
    Now just select the program and click Next>
firewall newrule stop a program from updating


 8   
    Now browse to the program(.exe) that you want to stop Updates/ Connect to Internet
firewall add program stop a program from updating

Using Antivirus Firewall

 1 
I am using Avg Internet Security 2015, in that there is a section called Firewall, i am showing what i have done with this particular antivirus that i have. But different antivirus programs have different ways to doing this
