So I started up my old dell computer from 2002-2003 a month ago, turns out everything works fine, its fairly fast, and works just as well as my other computer only problem is i cant set the time in the bottom right of the screen. it resets each time i log in to january 2002 even when i try the internet reset.

Also, I think this is related, some sites I NEED to access like paypal, when I go there, the computer says it's not safe and I have to 'make an exception' and make a certificate. even when I do this, the site comes up all messed up when I enter. I think sometimes it says for the website that the 'certificate is outdated'

Change the CMOS battery, CMOS Battery Replacement - http://www.liverepair.com/encyclopedia/art...cmosreplace.asp.

After changing it, reset the date and time in the BIOS to the correct data.
