Bios rom checksum error detecting floppy drive A error. system halt


Hello download the manual here:

http://www.msi.com/service/download/

By entering the ms xxxx number, from the mainboard.
When you find your mainboard, click on download and select manual.
Download the manual, and you need adobe reader to read the content.

Your cmos battery on the mainboard, has lost it`s power and need to be renewed (the bios can`t remember It`s settings)
The battery is a CR 2032 watch type:

1_23_2013_1_02_19_am.jpg

And fairly easy to change, with the shinny site upwards.

But you have to setup the bios, clock, date, boot settings when the job is done.
This is why, you need the manual.

Good luck

Bios rom checksum error, boot block bios vI.0


Error BIOS ROM CHECKSUM - SYSTEM HALTED.
Cause Bad Hardware
Solution Unfortunately this indicates that your computer BIOS ROM chip or Motherboard is physically bad. It is recommended that you contact your computer manufacturer or take the computer into local service center for repair.
If you wish to repair this issue yourself the motherbard will need to be replaced.
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.

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


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.

During the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
You will also need to set the time and date

In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date. Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.
hope this helps you

Bios rom checksum error.. system halted


This error comes when there is low cmos voltage so motherboard flash memory forgot the bios settings.
For that open cpu and then pull cmos cell from mother board buy new cmos cell and replaced it.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios and set time and date and boot option in bios then save settings.
Then it works again if it not works then you need to update firmware for your bios .
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Bios checksum error. How to solve it?


If you are using an old computer, there’s a possibility that you already encountered this error message during bootup; “CMOS checksum error – Defaults loaded”. At this point, the PC will halt its operation and requires you to press F1 to continue or DEL to enter setup (mostly but also depends on motherboard) to proceed.

This is caused by incorrect or corrupted CMOS values. BIOS settings are stored in CMOS. Each time the system is booted this number is recomputed and checked against the stored value. If they do not match, the error message will be displayed.

For most cases, this is caused by the motherboard battery. Buy a new one to any electronic retailers in your area and replace it. Turn on your computer and press the stated key to enter the BIOS setup. It can be DEL for some or F2 but this depends on your computer. On the BIOS menu, try to change the DATE and TIME settings because their values are reset to different value. Most settings are set to default so leave it as it is. Save the settings and reboot your computer.

Unplug mains from wall
remove lid
find CMOS reset jumper (usually 3 pins with a jumper/link on two of them near the button cell battery on the mainboard).
Move jumper to other position, then move jumper back again to original position.
fit lid and connect mains supply and switch on.

If you can go into the BIOS, set Defaults and set the date and time, Then try to boot.
If it has been of for a while and time is wrong when ou next boot it, replace the button cell battery on the mainboard.

The rom you used to flash the bios may not have been the correct one for your mobo, or it did not complete the flash entirely. Try using the usb a drive to flash it again and/or revert back to an older version.

Biostar P4M900-M7 SE BIOS ROM Checksum Error


The bios upgrade procedure stopped at half , leaving the bios corrupted. The computer now cannot do a regular boot procedure, this is the reason why it cannot recognise some device. If you are still able to boot from floppy, you can restart bios upgrade procedure from floppy. Just download floppy version upgrade and re do setup. Even if you do not find latest bios version, just download a floppy upgrade that is working, so that you can restart your machine regularly , and then do the update to latest version.
If you are not able to complete the bios setup, the only way to fix your motherboard will be flashing the CMOS chipset with a chip programmer device that will reinstall bios straight into cmos chipset.
You can have this done at the service point, in this case consider also replacing your motherboard.
