About Timers
Each time the specified interval (or time-out value) for a timer elapses, the system notifies the window associated with the timer. Because the accuracy of a timer depends on the system clock rate and how often the application retrieves messages from the message queue, the time-out value is only approximate. For more information on timers, see Timer Operations.

If you need a timer with higher precision, use the high-resolution timer. For more information, see High-Resolution Timer. If you need to be notified when a timer elapses, use the waitable timers. For more information on these, see Waitable Timer Objects. "

 2000ms   ->   1500ms

There is no way to change the tick rate of the Realtime clock in your PC by software.
