Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

3 Answers

My T6410 keeps freezing, shutting down on its own then blinking, turning on by itself and then giving me a checksum bios message something to do with a floppy drive a but I dont have one of them. it seems that the only time it will work right again is if I keep it off for an hr or so, then I boot it back up and it starts working for a a few minutes till it happens again. I know its not the hard drive, memory or any of the pci cards, Ivetested them already on another pc, so it's either the motherboard or processor. Cananyone figure out which one of the two it might be so I can replace it? Thanks

Getting a CMOS checksum bad error when starting my Acer M5640 Desktop with Windows 7 Thanks Daniel


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.

Booting problem


There are usually three main reasons that a CMOS Checksum Bad Error has occurred. They include:
  • CMOS Battery may not be functioning properly. The battery life may have expired.
  • Your BIOS may have been updated (either by user or possibly a virus)
  • The computer may not have been shut down properly e.g. shutting off the computer's main power without first shutting down the computer (MS Windows requires you to shut down your computer before shutting off the power).

Will not boot up. Get Bios Rom Checksum error, Keyboard error or no keyboard present. Manually shut down and turned on literally 30 times this morning before it would boot up. Then after a couple of hours...


most times a checksum error refers to the cmos battery. you may want to replace the battery and see if that helps. However this can also be a symptom caused by a bad power supply or a faulty board. Make sure you check your motherboard's capacitors for swelling or leaking.

hope this helps.

My Toshiba Satellite M45-169 keeps freezing


1. The battery on the motherboard has died. Replace battery.
2. The BIOS is corrupt, reflash BIOS.

Most likely #1, very rarely #2. Pop out the battery on the motherboard and replace it, after the first time you boot up your computer, go into BIOS and set everything the way it should be for your computer (usually just time and date) and then after each sequential time you reboot, that should take care of your problem.
