    If you are able to get into windows, I would say to use the new Nvidia Control Panel, under the system update option it has where you can update the bios without having to put the file on a disk.

    Ok, stay away from the bios flash for a bit. Try to boot without the disk in the floppy. Does it boot then? Let me know

SOURCE: BIOS CHECKSUM ERROR

Normally a bios checksum error is caused by a dead cmos battery. In a laptop that can be a pain - some are specialty batteries, some soldered directly to the motherboard, etc.

Start the laptop and enter the bois, there usually will be something to tell you what key to press, most of the time it is f2 or f10. Once in the bios set the date, time and boot order, then save and exit the bios. If it boots ok then try to determine what type of battery and it's location on the laptop to replace it.

If you let me know the make and model of laptop I will try to help determine that info and also where you can get the battery. That will more than likely be from eBay....

Hope this helps

I had tried to flash my Gb-k8vt800m board using @Bios and got a bootblock lock up. I had saved the original bios to a file on my desktop prior. I now have that hard drive as a slave in second identical...


99.9% of all computers will never need the bios flashed.
This is printed on the bottom of the gigabyte web site.

Warning:
Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems using the current version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result in system malfunction.
The problem with your computer has nothing to do with the hard drive. You need to repair the bios. There is a way to flash the bios without booting into Windows. I'm pretty sure that a floppy drive is involved. You're going to have to figure out how to flash it back to your original bios that you have saved on your hard drive without booting into windows. There is some info on gigabyte web site about flashing bios. My internet connection is bad today and I can't download very well from that site or I'd give you an address. www.gigabyte.com.tw

Also remember that when you flash the bios all the settings in your bios reset. You should enter setup and click on the "load optimal defaults" Then you need to make sure date and time are right. Need to set boot options. Check that the clock ratio is right for CPU. There are a lot of options in there that can be keeping your system from booting it isn't necessarily a failed bios flash other than not getting the settings right after flashing.

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.

Hi there, and welcome to FixYa.
Two ways to solve your BIOS problem:
One:
Removing the battery inside for the bios and find the jumper for clearing the CMOS.

Two:
Download your flash BIOS from here:

As you don’t have a diskette on your model, you might be able to install it on a memory key, and boot from that, depending on your previous BIOS setup???

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.
