Hello you just have to change the CMOS battery:

Press the lid to release the battery, and insert the new the same way.


BIOS CHECKSUM ERROR - 1_13_2013_3_12_14_pm.jpg

The battery is a watch type CR 2032, and can be bought for a few bucks.
The batterys voltage is about 3 volts, when it looses it`s power, bios can`t remember it`s settings.
Change the battery, and setup the bios clock, date, bootsettings, and you are running again.
Take antistatic precautions when working on the mainboard.

Good luck

Bad bios checksum


The BIOS sum check has detected faulty BIOS information. This can occur when the BIOS battery is nearly flat.
Replace the BIOS battery and then go into the BIOS configuration and set the Date and Time etc.

Drive A media error bios checksum error


your current bios is corrupted since the check-sum that was generated when your bios eprom was flashed with your current bios version doesn't match the check-sum that is generated as now, meaning that your bios changed for a few bits. you can fix this problem by re-flashing your bios with a good ROM file that you can download from your computer maker site or your motherboard bios maker site, also upgrading your bios with a newer version will take care of the issue as well.

A BIOS sum check error is usually due to a near flat BIOS battery.
Replace the BIOS battery and configure the BIOS Date & Time setting etc.

Hard Drive will not boot in Compaq Presario C700


BIOS checksum errors occurs when either the BIOS chjp is faulty or most likely the BIOS battery is nearly flat and the stored info changes and doesn't match the checksum info.
Replace the battery with a new one, leave the battery out for 1/2 hour before inserting the new battery. The BIOS will be reset to the default settings, you need to configure it again eg, datr and time etc.

Checksum error


Hi Oliver, the most common error related to the message,
(Bios Rom Checksum Error). Someone has left a floppy disk in the floppy drive. Once the floppy disk has been removed press the reset button on the PC, your windows will start normally. Next place to look is in your bios.
Open your manual to page 27.
Enter your bios & go to the title Advanced BIOS Features. Check First, Second & Third boot devices they should be as follows. Floppy disk drive, CD-ROM drive & primary hard disk drive. If both of the above are ok than try clearing the cmos/bios by resetting the cmos jumper (JP1) location on page 5. Descriptions of page five on page 6. CMOS settings on page 9.
When your system restarts re-enter your cmos & reset up your bios settings. Lastly if none of the above has fixed the error message, than remove the cmos battery & check its voltage. It should maintain 3volts. If yours' is lower than 3volts replace the cmos battery. There is one other possible fix. It’s an option not given lightly. Flashing a cmos/bios is not recommended unless all other options have failed.
