I had a similar problem that I later posted here:
In short, you can get the clocked aligned via the Internet assuming that
your connection is persistent or, if sporadic, goes live occasionally. I
haven't solved my problem yet, but I no longer run experiments locally so
the problem never returns.
Have you tried refreshing your desktop (right-click upon wallaper)? The
alternative is "Adjust time/date", then entering the root password. The
time then gets refreshed, always, so the BIOS is in fact just fine. That's
the way I get around the trouble if it ever comes up. By the way, I come
across similar problems in Windows so it appears to be quite universal.
