Take a look at this:

Win 7 runs too fast, doesn't sync with BIOS?

I think it has to do with my chipset.
I have taken out the GT8600 and run the Driver Sweeper, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. So I used Driver Sweeper to get rid of the Nvidia Chipset drivers and next time I booted it work.
I have since today upgraded to the latest bios and set a short cut for Restore points on my computer that I will use each night before I shut it off.
I went the read of the other thread - he is having the EXACT same problem. That was nice to know.

I have posted at the ASUS board and found others with the same issue - no fix that I could see. I am waiting for a reply - lots of views, but not one person has jumped in.
I am getting the out of sync bios issue everytime I boot now. The only way to fix it is unplugging the computer from the back and letting it sit for a while and then plugging it back in. This is insane.
I have a dual boot with WinXp and it works fine, so I know it is an issue with Win 7, I just don't know how to repair this issue - it is causing me to want to give up on Win 7 64 bit and go back to Vista.
Any suggestions?

Hi,
i have the same problem. Everything on my win 7 is faster - cursor, progressbar, time and doubleclick not working. I have asus m4a785td-m evo motherboard. Tried update bios but without effect. Now im trying install windows updates - maybe it helps. Bacause problems was during instalation too, i thing its not due to drivers (graphic or MB). If you had find a resolution, please contact me on my email adress. Ill be grateful for any ideas. Thanks

For a record: im not native speaker, so excuse eventually mistakes :-)

Well this is not much optimistic for you. I tried the updates and seems to be OK. Windows downloaded maybe 30 updates, rebooted and adjusted. Until now it was same, but i turned off my PC (also from elektricity). Next start was completely OK, like the others until today. Ill by testing and if condition change, let know here. Try it too, if you didnt yet. Good luck

Have you by any chance disabled ACPI?

I only recently found this problem... and it's strange since I've been using Windows 7 since early 2009 but only now I have experienced this issue. Some of the things I did might have triggered it.

For starters I didn't use to turn off the surge protector... I just left it open, but recently I wanted to do some power saving and turned off the protector after I closed the computer. When turning it on, sometimes I get the bug. All I have to do to fix it, just that it won't work every time, is to turn it off, wait a few minutes, turn it on, wait another min or so and then power up my pc and the loading goes normally.

I also managed to quiet the bug by resetting the BIOS. The strange thing was that I was constantly resetting the pc hoping that in one of the tries the clock would sync, and everything would work fine, but suddenly the BIOS said it wasn't able to load some parts of it and it gave me the option to reset. I reset it and it worked fine... for a while.

Some of the settings that I've changed were UMA frame buffer for my 780G from 256MB to 64MB. I know Ultimate requires at least 128MB, but it works fine with 64 nonetheless, setting remained.
I've had Cool'n'Quite disabled, and only recently enabled it.
Right until I did some research as to what this bug might be, I noticed I had ACPI 2.0 disabled. Which was strange since I can remember enabling it a few months ago.
And last, and somewhat worring, I've updated the BIOS to the latest one, being from 2009, which might have introduced this bug. I'm not sure and I can always go back to an older one if the bug persists, since it didn't fix my SPD issues... I have DDR2-PC800, but they only runt at 667, even if Brisbane supports PC800 and they are set at 800Mhz in the BIOS.

Asus M3A78 Pro, Athlon 5600+, Win 7 x64 U, 2 GB RAM.
