    Boot up with Knoppix http://www.knoppix.org/
    from your CD, you'll know then if it's the OS or hardware.

    I boot with Knoppix, no errors and my clock works.

    Check the time in the BIOS, shut down for a bit, reboot into the BIOS
    and see if the time has changed.

    I tried it and the bios time does change when i shutdown for a while
    and then boot in to bios.

    wait nevermind the time on the bios is frozen too. i guess this means
    its a hardware problem.

    Does that apply to Sun Solaris and Mac OSX as well?
