Cannot+connect+to+the+real+web+site.PNG
 
This error message displays whenever I try to go to google now.  
Over the past few weeks my computer has been acting oddly in different ways:
1)the clock will not change even after switching internet servers
2) several webpages like twitter, and craigslist display in text only mode.
3) youtube videos only play if the window is not maximized
 
I have heard that the google error and the internet time problem have some correlation, and I really need help.
 
I'm not very adept with computers so my attempts to remedy this problem by myself have been fruitless...
 
If anyone could offer some assistance that'd be a huge help  :)
 
thanks

The clock issue could indicate that your CMOS battery needs to be replaced.

Weird things can happen when that battery is no longer any good.

the computer is only around 6 months old, that seems like too soon for a battery to go, but i really dont know.

Your time is off by about 19 days.

I know, and I've changed the time back several times, switched internet time servers, disconnected from syncing with internet time, and nothing seems to fix it; the time will always move backwards/stay the same

If your battery is the common 2032 type, they are usually good for about five years, but you don't know how long your battery was sitting on a stores shelf for before it was used !

 

They are not usually difficult to change, but if you enter something like 'Computer make and model, CMOS battery' into the search box in YouTube you will almost certainly find a video on how to do it. If you don't feel up to doing it yourself, then it is a repair shop job.
