As above, glad it's fixed, and little cost 😉

 

You've probably done it but don't forget to set the time and date in the BIOS.

And that is another way to check that the battery is on it's way out if it is losing time (but guess that would not show up if taking time from the Internet servers instead of Local Machine Time).

I think on home PCs it's a bit of old school housekeeping. Some older operating systems used to throw an error up, not seen it for a while though. As you say, they probably check time servers and go by that before the BIOS time and date.
