my time is wrong and calender is also wrong
the amazing part when i try to type cal on the command line is say the year 2016 the time alway one hour ahead, i came keep changing the time by typing timeconfig, then i found out my calender is showing the wrong month, lol so how could i fix the cal command to show the right month.

Use <date> as root (man date for syntax)... or run ntpdate to get the date and time from your nearest ntp server :)

Looks like a Linux-related question, so moved to Linux-General.

Is this after a reboot, or just after an hour of using the system ?

You can enable the Network Time Protocol to maintain time synchronisation automatically for your system.

Its sounds software rather than hardware, but make sure you eliminate the cmos battery running low, they last between 5 - 7 years.
Easy to change, just read your mobo docs b4 you do anything and make sure you have everything backed up if you decide to do so.

live long and prosper
