Windows XP Clock stuck on AM or PM? PDF Print E-mail

I had a strange thing happen to my desktop system running WindowsXP Pro recently, where the clock would only read AM and would never let me change it to PM. After many days of searching for a solution and running every utility I could find to fix my system's internal time server. Finally I tried doing a search of my entire registry for the string "AM" and woldn't you know it, the first thing I found was a the following key that fixed the problem....

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International]

Under that key you will find two subkeys named

s1159
s2359

The values should be set to "AM" and "PM" respectively. I changed key s2359 to "PM" and everything seem to be working properly now.
