How do I give my rtc Ritalin?
Starting earlier this past week my system suddenly sped up. Normally this would be good, but the problem is that it sped up in a way that is breaking things. Namely the clock things that a second is approx 60% faster than it really is, and as a result I get timeout messages for things that I shouldn't.... it also makes MP3s/OGGs play in Fast FWD.
I'm using an ASUS P5A Socket 7 board with an AMD K6-2 450MHz not over or underclocked. I really haven't the slightest idea what's causing this. Is this the sort of thing that happens if the CMOS batteries die?
At the very least, is there a way to setup ntpdate/ntpd to set the clock about every 5min so that I can tell approximately correct time?
I'd think it were a weird quick of some software packages or even my kernel..except this is happening in Windows too.
