As much as I'd like to be able to give you a straight answer for this one, I don't have one. Although, I can suggest a number of things that you might want to check, considering that Halo worked fine with an older hard drive... Firstly I ask- Have you changed any other parts of your computers hardware since the last hard drive? This goes the same with software, I would think. Have you changed internet provider recently? change from dial-up to broadband or vice versa?(which might then be a matter of getting into contact with your provider, to see if that's the source of your problem).
When you were in the server that sprung you with a 2000+ ping, was it different from the one (or more) that you played in before, yet had no problem with ping? Because, from what I understand of Online FPS's, is that server distance to your region can effect you ping greatly (that's a given I suppose). But that explanation wouldn't justify the 2000+ ping you experienced, at least to my current understanding of such things. *shrug*
Tell me how it goes, if you can. Good luck. :D
