Hello Official,

I'm sorry, but could you explain your problem more? I'm not sure of what you mean. Did you mean could open or change Time Zone? :confused:

Thank you,
Shawn
 
When I open the adjust time in the task bar all I get is the calendar and the clock with no options to change time or date. I have even opened up the control panel to see if I could do it there with only the same options as the task bar. I went here to check Registry and re-downloaded the time zones:







Re: There is No Time Zone !!!
in
the registry, at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
|_ SOFTWARE
|__ Microsoft
|___ Windows NT
|____ CurrentVersion
|_____ Time Zones

there is only one value:
Name = default
Type = Reg_SZ
Data = (value not set)

I went to to the Dell site and looked for update to Bios, but I have the last update load in. Clock is exactly 1 hour off.
 
It may be best to do a System Restore using a restore point dated before this problem. You may have other missing entries in the registry as well that this can also fix.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
 
Have done 10 different restore dates. No help there either.

If the battery was weak, I would imagine that the time would lose more than just 1 hour off?
 
In that case you may need to do a Repair (upgrade) install to fix this.

If the battery was weak or dead, you would have inaccurate time or time that always reset after you shutdown. However, you should still be able to change the time and date though.
