The time base is delivered by the AC power source. The frequency of the AC power grid is generally stable. over a long period.You could try and change the outlet and see if it makes a difference. Anything else would require to measure the coils and crystals on your circuit board. An aging power supply as well as a weak coil could most certainly cause this.
