update trigger is not firing when a formula field update the value in a field

Hi,
 
I have update trigger. I want this triger to fire when value in field is updated by a formula field. But the trigger is not getting fired when the value in this field gets changed.
 
Please let me know if any body knows any solution.
 
Thanks,

The trigger will fire only when there is a DML statement firing , when the value of the formula field changes no such thing happens , so in order to trigger it place the trigger on the update of the fields which govern the formula field.

Thanks for reply but the answer is not solution of my issue. If formula field is governed by system date. I mean the value of
formula field changes when system date changes automatically. In this case there is no DML but still there is field update.

Anybody please let me know.

By system time change are you refering to the server time or are you referring to Timestamps like last modified date???
