How to use Fix-It Utilities 7.0 Express

A healthy machine is a happy machine

Synchronise the System Clock

1. The world is full of servers run by atomic clocks that offer the exact time. ClockSync connects you with such a server, keeping your system's clock to within a second of the exact time. To access this utility, go to the Fix & Maintain screen as above, and click ClockSync.


Step 1

2. Click Settings to access a list of atomic clock servers. The program will default to a particular server, so use the list to select a server nearer your location. Click 'Test Selected Server' to check whether your selected server is responsive. If the server doesn't respond, select a new one and repeat the test.


Step 2

3. Click Synchronize. Fix-It will then connect the PC to your selected server and correct the time. A confirmation message will appear underneath both time outputs when the process is complete. If a problem occurs, select a new server and repeat the procedure. Click Done.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
