Question about Intel Motherboard
I have a very old computer which has problem in its BIOS settings ..In the beginning it shows bad checksum error- defaluts loaded ..and then it asked to press F1 to continue and got stuck at ''veriifying DMI pool data'' ....it was showing another error in the beginning which says latency time recommended to 3. But when i changed latency time i never saw this error again. I tried to check the motherboard name and model number but could not find it anywhere. Could anybody please tell me how can i check if my BIOS settings are okay.
I reserached on internet where i got that this error sometimes is becuase of old battery so i replaced my motheboard battery but still getting same error. i already tried to set in on fail-safe and default setting but no help either.
Please let me know what else i can do. please dont say to discard it, i am just curious to learn.
Thanks in advance

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.
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.
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
