Default Computer Time

I am having an issue with the time clock on my computer. The time is always incorrect and causes issues with the wrong time being stamped on e-mails etc. I have tried the basic methods suggested to rectify the problem with no success. When I change the time manually, it will not keep the correct time for very long and becomes a problem soon after.

Any suggestions how to fix this issue permanently? Thanks.

Depends on what basic methods you have tried but this symptom is usually indicative of the bios battery needing changing.

Replace the BIOS battery. Replace the battery, boot into BIOS and update the time. Save and exit, boot into [OperatingSystem] and make sure your time and your time zone are correct.
