Not that this has anything to do with it but what time does your bios have?
BIOS is OK, and so is my Windows XP running on the same hardware ... just this Linux is wrong.
There IS a message at Linux bootup, stating that previous startup is in the future. Technically spoken, this is correct. But, that would mean it is impossible to set the date back to an ealier moment in time ?!
I may need to be in special bootup mode to change time ?!
Probably You need to change your hardware clock...or your linux box is listing to NTP server
Hardware clock = BIOS clock
when you boot your computer..go to the bios mode (keep pressing del and all the Function keys)..you will land in bios screen(blue screen)
You might see some option in the bios which will let you to change the time.....try doing that..save the configuration ..then reboot....
might work...if its a problem with hardware clock
even check whether your box is listeing to any NTP server
