Intel 102ggc:The Firmware has detected that Cmos Checksum Error

I have Intel 102ggc with 2Gig Ram and I recently updated the bios, now when my Pc shuts down illegaly then it resets Date/Time and throws an error stating.

"The Firmware has detected that Cmos Checksum Error has occurred.
Press Enter to Continue..."

I changed Three Batteries none fixed the issue. The Cmos jumper is on the same place as it was before the Bios Update. I tried switching jumper then it would say put the jumper back Cmos is reset. Still the problem exists.

Please help me solve this issue if one can.

Thanks in Advance.

What is "the firmware has detected that a CMOS checksum error occurred.Press the Enter key to continue. The firmware has detected that the system date/time has not been set." What is this error.


I assume that you entered the BIOS after replacing the battery and set the date and time? If you cannot get to the BIOS after receiving this message, it usually means that the BIOS has become corrupted, either by failure or by virus. You may be able to reflash it if you can download a bios update from the manufacturer.

Solutions to CMOS Checksum Bad Error

The CMOS Checksum Bad Error can be fixed easily by following the listed steps carefully.

CMOS Battery may not be functioning properly

If you suspect that your CMOS battery is not functioning properly, you can easily change it. Before changing your battery, reboot your computer to make sure that the error still exists. If it does, go into your CMOS and write down all of the settings. If all the settings are lost, you can usually retrieve them from your computer manufacturer. Now locate the battery and remove it, you might need to consult your computer's manual or technical support to remove your battery (the battery a flat, shiny silver colored and coin-shaped). Take down the CMOS battery's information such as volt, size, etc. Once you have your new battery, you can replace it and reenter your CMOS settings. If your battery was the cause of the CMOS Checksum Bad Error, you should have solved the problem.

Your BIOS may have been updated

If your BIOS have been updated recently, your CMOS settings may have reset. Make sure that the values entered in the BIOS are correct or simply reset them to the default settings. If you believe that a virus has updated your BIOS settings, run a virus scan and make sure that the BIOS settings are back to the default.

The Computer may not have been shut down properly

Sometimes when running MS Windows, if you shut down your computer without first properly shutting down your operating system, it will corrupt the CMOS settings causing the CMOS Checksum Bad Error. You can easily avoid this error by making sure that you completely shut down your computer properly before turning off the main power. Usually this entails going into the Start Menu, clicking on Turn Off Computer/ Shut Down. If improper shutdown was the cause of the error, you may have solved the issue.

Cmos checksum error & keyboard not function


CMOS checksum errors
Explanation: A checksum is computed as an error-detecting code, to protect the BIOS settings stored in the CMOS memory. Each time the system is booted this number is recomputed and checked against the stored value. If they do not match, an error message is generated to tell you that the CMOS memory contents may have been corrupted and therefore some settings may be wrong. BIOSes react in different ways to encountering this sort of error. Some will warn the user and then continue on with whatever settings were in the CMOS. Others will assume that the settings that were in the CMOS were corrupted and will load default values stored in the BIOS chip "for safety reasons". The error message will indicate which your system is doing.
Diagnosis: The most common cause of checksum errors in CMOS is a battery that is losing power. Viruses can also affect CMOS settings, and motherboard problems can also affect the stored values.
Recommendation: Follow the instructions in this section to address the CMOS corruption. 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 BIOS settings backup).

Pc "bios"problem


this looks like you have kept the bios password and you forgot it. just do one thing open the cpu case to access the inside of the system and then just remove the battery in it. wait for 5 min and again plug in the battery. thats it your bios memory password will be reset.
2nd solution without removing battery. just reset the bios as shorting the jumper pins. consult your motherboard book to know where to find the bios reset. it will be written as CLEAR CMOS.
