    MacBook Pro acting strange after a power surge.


    The date and time gone back to 2000 and when I tried to connect to the internet I had to join network and type in my password.

    Any site I go to Firefox say your connection is not secure

    The owner of Google.com has configured their website inproperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

    This site uses http strict transport security HSTS to specify that Firefox only connects to it security. As a result it is not passable to add an exception for this certificate.

    If I try to go on the Internet with safari it say

    Safari can't verify the identity of the website www.yahoo.com

    The certificate to the website is invalid. You might be connecting to a website that is pretending to be www.yahoo.con


    What do you think could be going on.

    Time to take it in. Perhaps a capacitor on the motherboard popped. and the motherboard is loosing it settings like time and others. Reset it to the correct time manually and see if that sticks.

    BTW, the security message is standard when the time on the computer is off. They want to ensure that old or fake security certificates are not used. You can sometimes have this same issue when you travel and the times is not set to the local time.

    Do they not say you should back up your computer first before you do that?

    Idk why they would. It doesn't really touch your hsrd drive. I've done it a lot and I never do anything special for it.

    It just at the Apple web site say you should do a back up before doing it.

    Also I forgot to say the laptop battery was fully charged and laptop turn on and pluged into the wall when power gone out. The computer shut down and restarted. The screen gone white and took some time to boot up. This is when the date and time reset to 2000.

    The only way to keep the date and time now is always have the computer pluged into the wall. Same as for forgetting my wifi network if not pluged in.
