How to troubleshoot time change issues on your Macbook

 

If the time on your Macbook is incorrect, there are a few possible reasons for this. Check the following:

-The time zone may be incorrect. To check this, go to System Preferences > Date & Time. Make sure that the “Set date and time automatically” and “Set time zone automatically” options are selected.

-The NTP (Network Time Protocol) server may be unavailable or incorrectly configured. To check this, go to System Preferences > Network. Select your network connection from the list on the left, then click the Advanced button. Under the TCP/IP tab, make sure that the “Configure IPv6” option is set to “Link-local only”.

-Your computer’s clock may be losing time. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including heat build-up and battery issues. If you suspect this is the case, try resetting your PRAM (parameter random access memory). To do this, shut down your computer and turn it back on while holding down the Command (⌘), Option (⌥), P, and R keys until you hear the startup chime twice.
