Use the hwclock command to set both the hardware clock and the system clock. First set the hardware clock. Then set the system clock to the hardware clock. After a few days do it again and you should have both the correct time and an accurate clock. See:

man hwclock

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.

something like that happened to me, I'm using slackware, I had to set the right time in the BIOS it worked good apparently slackware had changed my time in the BIOS and even though I was able to change it trough KDE it would go back to the wrong time whenever I restarted.
hoping to be helpful

Try setting the clock to local instead of UTC
