Just noticed something about the time in my T-430 Lenovo The time in the BIOS time settings is four hours ahead of the time in Linux Mint 19.1 It doesn't affect the time in Linux Mint which is what I use for time and date. Is it OK to use it this way or will there be some kind of problems down the road. If I change the time in the BIOS to the same time as in Mint then the time in Mint changes to the four hour difference.

Having said that, it's simple enough to hit F1 at reboot and change the time in BIOS.

This can be a problem when dual-booting Linux and Windows, where BIOS time is set to local time. There's a registry setting to make Windows interpret BIOS time to UTC.
