then you probably have a problem with the mobo; but you could try reinstalling windows, just ot eliminate something wrong there, or a BIOS update

Is correct time reset after you reboot the computer? There are programs that when they are running causes the system to pause for a second or so every few minutes causing the time loss to be noticeable if you do not reboot every day, as long as you shutdown at least once a day then the time will be reset by the BIOS clock and all is well. Usally it take a few days for the time loss to be noticeable but if you do not want to reboot then the option above would also reset the time (atomic clock)
