Not by a long shot if you read the link I showed you most people have that issue.
Even right now I had just received a used laptop to keep from a current customer I am working with this month.
Her lappys are mostly recent and the bios itself shows proper time.
Windows xp sp2- windows 8 has that problem and usually it starts right out from the time server online.
I've seen linux distros do better than windows upon new installation and get the time right without problems. :/
Sorry about the late reply have some junk going on this week right and trying to get unstressed from it.
