    Since you haven`t given much info, this is just a guess.

    Click start/run and type services.msc into the run box and press the enter key.

    When the window appears, maximise it. Double click on the following service, set the startup type to automatic and click start. Click apply/ok

    Windows Time.

    Close the services window.

    Regards Howard :)

    If you are receiving errors from the Windows timeupdate,toggle it to the goverment time update

    Check to see if your firewall software if blocking the Windows time server.

    Check your firewall.

    Turn it off try the sync and see if it takes.

    I have the same problem at times but its usually the server

    Windows Firewall is crap. Disable it
