Actually rereading you post ,your clock shouldn't loose time when running because it no longer is running from the battery ,does it loose a whole lot of time when computer is shuttdown.
If it is the battery Radio Shack type is fine .

Edit : I just found this tidbit of info .

Are you using Windows XP with broadband Internet, marceta? If so it is possible to alter settings so that Windows synchronises with an online atomic clock at frequent intervals.

@caperjack

Most of those search results will tell you simply how to manually synchronise the clock. If you wish to have the system automatically synchronise at regular intervals, and don't wish to delve into Registry editing, download and use a utility program such as:

EMSA Time Synchroniser

which will allow you to set the intervals at which you wish the clock to be updated.

Umm... ???

Many of those links describe how to do what you suggested earlier:

strangly enough, the clock is fine, and thanks to everyone that told me how to set it! It is only when i play games, or other high RAM apps that it lags!
