Hi and welcome to the forums masias223! Smiley Happy

A couple of places for you to visit: Blackberry 101    Tips & Tricks

Several things are going on here.  First of all, you will want to disconnect your device from your laptop.  Next, go to this site:  BB USB & Modem drivers  select and download the drivers to your pc and then double click on the .msi file once it is finished downloading.  This should install the drivers to your pc which should then recognize your device when you connect it to the Desktop Software again.


I believe the clock comes up on your device when you connect to your pc because you have it set to do that in clock-options-when charging (this is probably set to "Display Clock".  Change that to "Do Nothing" or leave it as it is if you want to leave it that way.


Let us know how it goes and it is great  to have you here! Smiley Very Happy
