You may have something failing in the POST (Power On Self Test). Typically, they'll just hang, or even reboot, if that's the case, but... you never know. I'm guessing that if you save and exit from BIOS, it reboots, and sends you right back into Setup again.

Start by removing or swapping out things. First, I'd do the DDRAM chips (if you can). Reseat them, and be sure they're inserted properly. Once you're in BIOS again, check to see if the amount of RAM reported matches what you have installed.

Next, if you have a video card, take it out, and switch the BIOS to use the onboard video. Also, remove any other add-on cards you have.

If none of that fixes the problem, you can find the jumper on the motherboard (should be near the battery), and set it to clear CMOS. Follow the instructions in your manual on how to do this. Once that is completed, try restarting.

Let me know how it goes.

Cheers

HOW TO REST MOTHERBOARD AFTER CHANGING BATTERY


If you changed the CMOS battery you in effect reset it. On boot up, go into the BIOS setup and check all settings. Even if you don't change any of the BIOS settings, save them as if you did and it will reboot. Should be OK then.

Acceso a bios


Look at the bottom of the monitor screen, when the manufacturer logo comes up

Gigabyte?

Look for -> enter BIOS Setup <- and the key to press

If Windows loads, let it load. Then turn the computer off normally.
(WinXP: Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off )

If Windows does NOT load, press the CTRL key, ALT key, and DELete key AT THE SAME TIME. (Not shouting)

Or press the Power On button, and hold in for a count of 10 seconds.

Now...........
AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on that enter BIOS Setup - key.

Tap in 2 second intervals.

If you hear beeps ignore them.
They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it

This method will get you into BIOS Setup.

Mainboard GA-G31-ES2C Warning: Backup BIOS checksum error BIOS Auto-Recovering...


If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.
If you don't know the settings the should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date.
Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work.

How to fix,when power on my pc i always see htis bad bios checksum


This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.

Diagnosis: The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is probably faulty. It could also be another component on the motherboard.

You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values (hopefully against a recent

How can i set first boot drive on an IBM PC, model is FRU PN 02R4087


Hi van Carlisle,

you will have to go into BIOS during the startup, I am not familiar with the FRU PN 02R4087 but the process is more or less the same for all PCs.
When you start your PC watch the screen carefully, at one point there will come a text similar to "to enter setup press Delete" usually it is either the Delete key or F2 or F10... watch your screen to find out which key is for the setup on your computer. you may have to start many times over before you get everything.

Once you have entered BIOS you will have to look for a page that contains an entry like "First Boot Device" or something similar. it should be set to HHD1 or CDROM or Disk... then follow the directions on how to change this value to what ever it is that you wish. Be Aware that there are other options in BIOS that in changing them you can quite possibly damage your computer, so do not change anything else unless you know what you are doing.

I hope I was able to help you on this.
