the clock on my tablet seems to fall behind. The clock is synchronized with internet server. Even when the sync mode was off, the clock falls behind about 15 sec per min. When I restart the tablet the clock is synchronized (bios clock is correct) but then it begins to fall behind as long as it is powered on.
Any suggestions please

This is a great location to get assistance! I read your post and see that you are having issues with the clock on your HP Pavilion x2 Detachable PC. I would like to help you resolve this issue.
- Press Windows key + r.
- Type services.msc.
- Click Windows Time in the Name column.
- Alternate click and then click Properties.
- Change Startup type to Automatic (if it’s not already set to Automatic).
- Click Start if the service isn’t started.
Let me know how it goes.
Please click the "Accept as Solution" button and the "Thumbs Up".
Let me know how you make out.

thank you for your prompt response.
I followed the steps you discribed and now the "start up type" on my tablet is "automatic" but stil the clock is falling behind. It seems that the secods are running "slower!!!". The delay is the same, about 15 sec per minute.
Is there something else that I can do?

You are welcome and I appreciate the steps you have performed and have certainly done a good job.
I understand that the clock is still lagging behind by 15 seconds per minute. I suggest you to use this NTP server over the default ones and it should help: http://www.pool.ntp.org/

I switched to "pool.ntp.org" server but i saw no improvement ! Even without comparing to a stopwatch, I can see that the seconds, on the tablet, run slow. I disconected the clock from the time server and even then the clock was slow.
I suspect that the server in not the issue. It seems like the tablet is running out of battery (like a digital watch?!?). Could this be the case, and if it is which may be the battery i have to replace?
