Do they revert to the slow time when the computers are shut down and started up or while powered on?

 

Are these machines joined to a domain? If so, what does the time show on the domain controller?

 

If the machines are not joined to a domain, try to change the clock synchronization server to one of the NIST Internet Time Servers such as time.nist.gov (assuming you are in the US).

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Most smaller companies only have one server that does everything on the network (active directory domain controller, dns, file sharing, etc.) so if you know where the server is and have permission to log in to it, log in and see what time the clock shows.
