"Ich habe da ein Problem, bei dem ich nicht weiß, wie ich es lösen soll."

The English sentence is grammatically wrong and makes no sense. Is the German sentence any better? If so, how should it translate?

The German sentence is fine. "bei dem" refers back to "Problem", but it gets lost in translation, as it were. Here's my attempt.

I have a problem and I don't know how to solve it.

Thank you. Whew! That makes much more sense.
