The clock times in EVERYTHING (windows clock/videos/games) run 5x faster than they should

I just put together a new computer, and the speed of any time is 5x faster than normal time. I look at the windows clock and the second hand is flying around. I play a video in VLC and the video runs at 5x at the start of load up. I even started a game of league of legends and the timers IN THE GAME were going fast, and then would reset to normal after 10 real seconds. So the game time would display 2 minutes, and then jump back to the real time of 1:20, and then speed off again. Even the loading wheel in Chrome and Twitch spin SUPER fast.

EXCEPT the BIOS time is normal.... so that's weird.

I haven't tried to overclock anything, I just put it together a day ago. I also have tried that w32time thing listed online in cmd, and it didn't work.

I looked around and it looks to be some kind of CMOS problem but I'm not really sure. Anyone heard of this and how do I fix it?

  1. Best answer
    Check that you have the latest BIOS, if not update that, is so reset the CMOS
  2. Just updated the BIOS, still running too fast. Going to look into resetting CMOS. Resetting CMOS did it, thanks!
