Bios check sum error

Hello,
of late i have been having problems with the start-up of my computer intermittently.it says " award bootblock bios v1.0, copyright(c) 2000,award software inc , bios rom checksum error ,keyboard error or no keyboard present, detecting ide atapi device , found cd-rom try to boot from it.... pass automatic load awdflash.exe " . wht could be the prob? could anyone list the probabilities and solutions? again, it doesn't happen all the time. BIOS ROM checksum error, Keyboard error or no keyboard present
(ASUS P5N-D motherboard)
This message would result after the system crashed suddenly (most of the time when idle).  At first, the system would restart but eventually would crash again ("1001") error then I would get the BIOS ROM error message upon rebooting - but usually the second or third attempt to reboot would result in a successful restart; not so any longer.  The BIOS ROM error message now persist.
In the interim after first getting this message, I did restore my XP SP3 system to earlier dates when the problem was not present but that did not yield any results.

I would say you have a failed memory (RAM) module. Probably a module in one of the secondary slots since the computer is able to POST and will attempt to boot.

Bios rom checksum error


Hai, That message dosn't sound like an error. i suspect the ram is faulty/incompatible and the pc won't boot because of it. 
Change back to the old ram and reset the bios (jumber on the motherboard)

Award BootBlock V1.0


Hi.

The BIOS (Basic Input output System) on your motherboard has become corrupted and the computer can't boot normally. The Bootblock is a "failsafe" device that allows the computer to boot far enough to use the floppy disk drive, even though the rest of the BIOS code is scrambled.

How do you think this happened? The most common cause is people trying to "update" the BIOS and messing up the flashing process. Sometimes some particularly nasty viruses can wreck the BIOS code as well.

Now this might be fixable. You will need to download a known good BIOS from Iwill's website and the Award BIOS flashing utility. Then you will need a bootable floppy disk (DOS) to start the computer. You will have to copy the BIOS .BIN file over to the floppy beforehand and the flashing utility. There will be information on the Iwill website on how to flash the BIOS.

Here is a full detailed webpage on how to go about all this:

http://pages.sbcglobal.net/jefn/bootblock.html

I just did a quick Google search using the motherboard details you provided and came up blank ....

If you can't get the BIOS flashed and usable again then I'm afraid it's time for a new motherboard/computer.

Bootblock


Hi,

This messages indicates that the BIOS could not be located and loaded up. Normally this happens when the BIOS is corrupted. The corrective action required is to re-flash the BIOS using a DOS bootable diskette in the 1.44 FDD. Aside from the BIOS file, a flashing software is also needed. Pls start here.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


check the manual , there is a jumper plug that allows you to move a jumper over to reset the bios to default , ie , the jumper makes a connection between two pins for 10 secds and then replace back to rest position..do this with the pc off and unplugged of corse,
