    what does the bios time say? do you use a timeserver to synch - maybe one in a different time zone?

    if you double click the clock in the tray the 'date and time properties' window opens. from the third tab called 'internet time' you can set a timeserver to automatically sync the time... just a thought but if you installed yourself and didn't change it then it probably isn't the cause.

    Reset the CMOS and set the time again in the BIOS and in XP.

    Yep, you need to remove the battery on the mobo for about 1-2 minutes and put it back in.

    As for your resolution settings, you may not have the correct drivers installed for your video card.
