Hello there!!
 
I've just received my PC back from repair service. My PC wouldn't turn on, something was wrong with motherboard. 
 
So I plugged everything, turned on PC and was pretty happy until I found out that... everything runs TOO FAST!
 
The windows cloak runs like 3-4 times faster. And that's why, supposedly?, all other clock-based applications are running too fast as well. For example: .gif runs faster as well, or when I press "a" for 2 seconds it creates like "100" copies of "a" instead of just really few copies. Same about backspace. Everything just runs too damn fast...!
 
I'm not really into PC stuff... So far I reinstalled windows (from win10 to win8...). I reseted BIOS and upgraded it to the newest version.
 
My configuration:
 
Windows 8 64-bit
8GB RAM 1600MHz
Intel i5-4670k 3.4GHz
GTX 760
Mobo: ASROCK EXTREME4 Z87
550W Power
 
I'm really struggling... Please help me

hmmmm have you contacted the shop? anyway, I think the issue might be a time services are corrupt....make sure your logged in as an administrator, and open your command prompt and run the following commands:

 

net stop w32time

 

w32tm /unregister

 

w32tm /register

 

net start w32time

 

w32tm /resync

 

then restart it and see if that fixes the problem.

net stop w32time and w32tm /resync doesn't work. Rest works. But didn't solve the problem.

Did you contact the tech that worked on it ? Why was it in the first time...

I didn't contact them yet, because it's weekend :( I was hoping it could possibly be fixed without their help.

you could try changing out the CMOS battery with a new one. It might be useful to know exactly what the shop did to it, I would check to make sure your motherboard chipset drivers are up to date, and that the BIOS is to. If the shop flashed the BIOS, something could have goofed causing these issues and flashing it again might fix them, but flashing it could be difficult to do for someone with little experience in such things, and id hate to go down that road without more knowledge of whether the shop flashed the BIOS or not.

Not sure if it matters, but I also updated BIOS from P2.30 to P3.20 (ofc after the whole "too-fast" things started to happen)

Ok, well assuming it sent properly we can rule out the BIOS. Have you tried updating the chipset drivers?
