Windows 7 running way too fast

Since building my PC 2 days ago the clock has always been running way too fast, a minute on the clock passes in a couple of seconds.

This affects all Windows uses, double clicking is impossible and animated images cycle way too fast.

I have searched online and this seems to be a common problem for users with Asus M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard, although I can not find a fix online.

Have tried many suggestions - updating Bios, changing various settings, no luck so far.

Does anyone have any idea of something I can try before getting the motherboard replaced? I really dont want to remove the processor and send motherboard back if I can avoid it. Thanks.

Sorry, I can not contribute, just want to mention that i find it funny you say your windows is running "too fast".

I never heard that expression before. ;)
