Replace the CMOS battery.  It is about 1" in diameter and thin, like a coin.  they only cost a few dollars and you can get them at walmart or anyplace that sells batteries.  Make sure you unplugg your computer before swapping batteries.  when you start it up, you will have to set the date and tiem and all that once more and from then on it should hold the information.  Batteries sometimes last a year, and sometimes 10 years...hard to say.  But when the bios is not holding info, 9 times out of 10 it is the battery.  Please Rate!

Cmos checksum error-defaults loaded


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.

Make sure the battery has plenty charge or remove the battery for a while, about 5 minutes to see if that restores it some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

You could check the site for the machine vendor to see if there is a reset jumper.

If that doesn't work then you will need to refresh the BIOS


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 the Delete or 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.
.

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.

Press F10 Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work
hope this helps

CMOS Checksum error


Issue:
CMOS Checksum Bad or CMOS Date/Time Not Set

Cause:
This issue is caused when the CMOS values are incorrect. This issue can occur because of any of the below possibilities.
* Bad or old CMOS battery.
* BIOS update.

Workaround 1:
1. Disconnecting power from computer without shutting down computer.
2. Attempt to reboot the computer. If error still occurs after rebooting the computer enter CMOS setup and check all values, this includes verifying the time and date are correct. Once everything has been verified and/or changed make sure you save and exit CMOS setup.
3. If you have a Phoenix BIOS and have an option for 'Reset Configuration Data', set this value to 'Yes' and save and exit the CMOS.
4. If the computer was had the power disconnected while it was still running it is possible this could cause the CMOS to become corrupt. Ensure that the computer is ready to be shut off before turning off the computer. If you have a laptop computer ensure that the battery is charged before disconnecting the power connection.
5. If the CMOS values have become corrupted entering the values in CMOS setup and saving and exiting CMOS should resolve your issues.
Note: If this issue continues to occur after you turn off your computer off it is possible that the CMOS battery may be failing or already bad. Before considering replacing the CMOS battery try leaving your computer on for several days.
Workaround 2:
If you performed workaround 1 and the error occurs again after a complete power down (i..e. removing the power cord), the CMOS battery is likely bad.

Foxconn n1996 chip needs replacing as had power cut as updating bios


Reboot the computer.
If error still occurs after rebooting the computer enter CMOS setup and check all values, this includes verifying the time and date are correct.

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.

Once everything has been verified and changed make sure you save and exit CMOS setup.

If everything appears to be correct and the issue persists try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults or Reset Configuration Data.


If this issue continues to occur after you turn off your computer off it is possible that the CMOS battery may be failing or already bad. Before considering replacing the CMOS battery try leaving your computer on for several days.

If a BIOS update has been run on the computer the values stored in CMOS may have been reset. Enter CMOS setup re-enter all values and then save and exit CMOS setup.


If you're unable to enter the CMOS setup or after running a BIOS update your computer no longer keeps its values the incorrect BIOS update may have been installed for your computer or the version downloaded may be corrupt. We suggest trying to update the BIOS again or reverting back to an earlier version.

Hope it helps

OverClocking Problem when startup my system


Most motherboards have settings that allow the board to try and overclock itself upon bootup. Take a look in your manual and it should lead you to the correct setting in the bios that will allow you to have the computer boot up in normal mode. Failing that, you may have to force the motherboard back to the default setup. There is a jumper you would have to move, then you would remove the battery from the motherboard. Check your manual for how to clear the CMOS settings if you need to do that step.
