Dell / Dell dxp051...

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.793 GHz / 3070 MB
I noticed yesterday that my clock in the lower righthand corner on my taskbar is always showing 4 digits ? For instance right now its 5:11AM and its showing 05:11AM ? When I first noticed it I was scratching my head wondering if it always displayed the clock like this however now Iam sure this is a change in the regular way it showed time without the extra digit ! If there is a registry edit or a way for me to get the clock to display correctly I would appreciate it greatly if somoeone was to help me out !
Thank You,Nick R.

In Control Panel,
click "Date, Time, Language...",
then click "Change the Format of numbers, dates, and times"
then look around there for where to change format.

Hi Chuck ,
Thank you for your reply . I went ahead and opened the Date & Time in the control panel however it has no option for changing the format ,language is not a part of this controller in the control panel it, gives me the option of what Time Zone and since Iam in California I us Pacific Time (US and Canada)Then another tab called the Date and Time where I have tried removing the 0 in front of the 5 ,however when I detele the 0 soon as I click on apply the 0 returns ? Then there is one more tab, Internet Time in which it matches the time on your PC with the current time the internet is telling the system is the correct time ! I've been doing searches trying to find a fix with no joy :-(
Thanks Again ,Nick

Go into Control Panel > Regional Settings. Select customize > time. There is an option there to change the time format; HH:MM:SS or h:m:s

Double letters give you a leading zero, single letters without. Upper-case 24 hour format, lower case 12 hour format.

Another way ---
In Control Panel,
click "Date, Time, Language...",
then click "Regional and Language Options",
then on the "Regional Options" tab, click the "Customize.." button, then click the "Time" tab.

Thank you to all I was able to open the Date Time Language in the Control Panel howevr the time did not offer me the single digit option ,so I entered it my self . My clock changed to no longer having the leading 0 ,however it no longer showed AM or PM ? I opened it back up and added a seperator period and put AM in that spot ,however when trying to apply I recieved a incorect format prompt I then removed the period ! However B/4 applying the changes I went to the language part of the controller and I was listed as English South Africa ? I changed it to English USA then I applied the changes and at this point my time is showing correctly 7:49 AM :-) Now I pray when I reboot my PC this remains the same ! Thank you to all that helped I keep you informed if it changes after I restart my PC !
Thanks Again Nick
P.S By changing my control panel view from classic to XP's I was able to get Date,Time Language and Regonial Options !

Who says that a post here has to be a serious disaster with your PC ? Why cant even little problems that you cant seem to figure out be posted without the snob patrol making some kind of comment ! If I hit a wall with even the smallest problem and I want to ask for help ,I will ! I 've been coming here for years and Iam not going to let the ladies tea club stop me ! To all others that actually had something to contribute other then snikering little nerd boy post , I will always thank you for your help ! In this case Iam not sure exacty what fixed the clock display however I appreciate your time and trying to help. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving to all !
Take Care ,Nick
