Issue Details

I have a PXIe-8840 controller running Windows. I have noticed after trying to set the time through Windows Date and Time tool, that it jumps to a different time. It seems to be an irregular time leap, but the time change is instantaneous (not as if the clock is dragging slow)


  1. Try updating your BIOS to the latest version to see if this resolves the issue.
  2. If your device is consistently connected to the internet, you can have it perform regular time updates through Windows Task Scheduler.
If the above steps do not work, please contact National Instruments Support by opening a Service Request
