irratic System clock (time passes extremly fast)


i'm having issues with the system clock of the system below.

It occurs at random times.
Time runs normal for couple hours but then accelerates at a rediculous rate.

disabling APIC is apparently a bandaid solution for the ATI Xpress 200 series chipsets
however in my case disabling causes the onboard Network card to fail to initialise.


any solutions?

Is it system time reported by "date" or hardware clock reported by "hwclock" that is going fast? Do both have the same time? (If not you probably want to make them the same - use the respective commands noted to change as well as to display.)

Have you checked to see if you're running ntpd (Network Time Protocol Daemon)? Or maybe doing ntpdate from cron? Perhaps you're telling it to update time from a source that is off or not using the correct time zone?

it could be Cool'n'Quiet™ causing it but dont know how to disable or fix that.

hwclock
reports correct time

date
reports fast time
