My windows 7 clock is slow by 3 minutes according to this website, and my android phone time.

I have tried manually syncing with the internet server and that does not fix. I went into date and time options, then the internet time tab.

It said

This computer is set to automatically sync with "time.windows.com"

I then hit update now and it said

An error occured while windows was synchronizing with time.windows.com. This operatin returned because the timeout period expired.

It gives the same error if I change to time.nist.gov

I can successfully ping time.nist.gov, but not time.windows.com

C:\>ping time.nist.gov

  • "I have tried manually syncing with the internet server and that does not fix it" Please edit your question and expand on this to explain exactly what you tired (how, which time servers, etc.) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 May 11 '16 at 13:03
  • With that time server did you attempt to resync? Was it automatically synchronizing always with internet servers, or was it disabled? What is your time zone? What happens if you manually fix the time and reboot the machine? Does the time gradually increases (could be a problem with the battery if so)? – Epoxy May 11 '16 at 13:05
  • Can you ping either of these domains? You should provide specifics. – Ramhound May 11 '16 at 13:28
  • ping time.windows.com is not a useful diagnostic. It is likely that ICMP is disabled for this server. – DavidPostill May 12 '16 at 9:34
  • Note the server is up and running. – DavidPostill May 12 '16 at 9:35
