Windows 7 Freshh Install Clock Running too Fast

The problem is the windows clock is running too fast, the keyboard is almost unusable the cursor blinks at a rate that is twice what it should, ect. Every real minute the windows time clock will advance 2 or 3 minutes. I have tried the following two suggestions and both did not seem to  help at all:

Using cmd with elevated privileges run the following and reboot:
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
w32tm /resync

The other suggestion was to  unplug the computer from the wall for 10 min, I have completely powered my computer off and disconnected it from any wall power and still have the problem.

Initially I was having a problem with the time  service not starting so, I changed the windows time service to delayed start as it seemed to have problems starting normally, and after making it delayed it now starts every time.

This is a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro, any suggestions are welcome.

Setup:
Windows 7 Professional
Processor: AMD Phenom II  X4  955 Processor 3.2 GHz
Installed Memory, 4.00GB
64-bit Operating System

Thanks in advance.

This sounds like low level hardware to me, given the keyboard issues as well. Does the bios have a backup battery, removing that should reset its settings - might be worth a try.
