time (off by 6 hours) / correct time zone selected [solved]

Postby william on Sun Jan 09, 2011 8:40 pm

For whatever reason, the time on the clock is stating it is 6 hours earlier than it really is...I have the correct timezone chosen. I dual boot, so if I change it then it seems to change my system clock which affects the time in Win7. I could just change timezones to make the time correct, but I don't really want to move out of country yet :)

Anyone else have this issue or know how to change the time without changing the system time?
