I had a similar problem once dual booting with WinXP.

It turned out that there was an error when reading or setting the
hardware clock (during boot and shutdown, respectively).

Check if root can do this:

hwclock --localtime --systohc

hwclock --localtime --show

(In my case I could fix it by using HWCLOCKPARS="--directisa".)
