i decided to bring over my big backup drive last night. after connecting it i was getting some strange happenings. icons in the taskbar to the left were missing and the clock moved up to October. i then noticed problems with web certificates for gmail and google and other sites as well. it was quite frustrating! i was glad to figure out it was the clocks fault. but i am still feeling the the effects. games i play on the net don't seem to be following that the clock is alright. they continue to complain about invalid certificates and whatnot. i'm having problems reinstalling flash too. it's amazing how much of a problem this caused and is still causing! i hate to be rushy but i want to get a hold of these things as soon as i can. but i know it takes patience too. i'm not sure what else to do. luckily the offline installer for flash seems to work. can someone please help me so i can return things to normal? thanks in advance :D. i am running windows 7 home premium and i dont know what else you need?

First thing I'd like you to do please - check the winning lottery numbers for the Mega Millions in New Jersey for NEXT WEEK B)

Okay, if you can't really do that, please explain what you mean when you say: "i decided to bring over my big backup drive last night." EXACTLY what is this drive and what did you do with it? HOW did you "connect it"?

the drive in question is a 1TB drive i bought some odd years ago. i bought it for backing up any data i could fit on it. it's model number is HD103UJ
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
took that from newegg. the drive was first on my ollddd pc which was windows xp, then vista on a different machine as the old machine died. now it's here with me new machine which is windows 7.
i forgot to add that all of this happened right on the heals or before i tried setting up a static ip for my windows 7 machine. i followed the instructions on http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/19249/how-to-assign-a-static-ip-address-in-xp-vista-or-windows-7/. i don;'t think this was the problem but in the interest of full disclosure. i thought i'd let you know.

I really didn't want to know the specs of the drive, I wanted to know what it contains (what is a "backup drive"? what is on it? WHAT is backed up?) and HOW you connected it to your new system (did you replace the original drive with it, is it a secondary drive?). Did you format it and put a new OS on it? PLEASE --- provide ALL relevant information about what the drive contains and how it is "connected".

i'm sorry i misunderstood. well there's backups of movies, music, a windows backup. also a backup of my old xp system. i think i deleted the windows folder from that total backup. that's pretty much the contents of the drive. my new pc has a swap slot in the front. so i dumped it into the thing you slide into the swap slot it came with. i didnt replace the system OS. hell i haven't even moved the swap file to the 1tb backup drive as of yet. the swap slot has a sata2 connector in it. i dont think this pc comes with any ide connections. well i think thats all i can think of the drive it self. the original drive with windows 7 on it is intact and nothing changed. although during startup something was asking me or showing me that neither had raid enabled or something like that. it was way too fast to read the info. it came right before the windows logo and after the press del key to enter bios. the drive with windows has 2 partitions and the 1tb backup drive has 1 partition for data.

in desperation i removed the drive and nothing has changed for the better. i have most but not all net functionality when connecting to games or other apps. well the apps continue to complain about a certificates being wrong or out of order. what a pain! other programs dont seem to connect properly at all either.
