clock changes hours by it self

Any one ever see a clock change time all by itself, but only the hours? Got a brand new MSI K7T TURBO2. Has been running for a couple weeks fine and suddenly started flipping the hours by 2 or more but min stays fine. also does on reboots. running win98 and redhat 7.3 with lilo. checked bios as well as win98 and they all do it. I would guess if it was a battery the minuites would get off too.

It might be a timezone issue. If one side is 98, I doubt its that, and I don't know what rh's deal is lately, but you could have accidently setup netdate to run at boot and set the time by some ntp server in the wrong timezone. Also, check to see if you have 98 set to a different timezone... one of these two is changing it on boot, but both are resetting the hardware clock on shutdowns.

got it cured, was a conflict between time zones and utc. ended up using "non" for time zone, and reset the time one more time. Thanks you got me thinking.
