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.

How do you get into the bios


When you first start your computer, it will go to the computer manufacturer 'splash screen'. (Manufacturer logo)

At the bottom of this screen tells you the key, or keys to press, to enter BIOS Setup.

This window of opportunity goes by real f-a-s-t.
The best method is to find what key, or keys need to be pressed, to enter BIOS Setup.

Then as SOON AS YOU PRESS THE POWER ON BUTTON, start tapping in 2 second intervals, on that key, or keys.
This way you won't go past the window of opportunity.

{ You may hear a beep, or beeps, as you tap on the key/s. This is a Stuck key Error Code, and is nothing to worry about }

There are many different keys used to enter BIOS Setup, for a computer. (Desktop or laptop)

This may help,

http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/bios_manufacturer.htm

Remember;
1) When in BIOS Setup you can no longer use the mouse. You have to use the Keyboard.

2) At the bottom of every screen in BIOS Setup, is listed a navigation guide. It is Not labeled Navigation Guide.
This tells you how to get around. (Navigate around)

3) Use the appropriate key on the Keyboard, to highlight the area you wish to go into, and then the specific parameter you wish to change.
Then press the Enter key.

4) Unless you Save Changes, it will be like you have just looked around, and done nothing.

5) Look at the parameters already set. You may wish to write them down. IF, you make a mistake in the BIOS Setup utility, you can go back, and set the parameters back to the way they were.

Also in the navigation guide to the right, it usually tells you what key to press to go back to the factory default settings.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

{ If you want more than generic information, you have to at least post the computer manufacturer name, and Model Number, in a Comment }

    How do i rmove a bio password out of my toshiba satellite m305-s 4910 laptop


    B I O S P A S S W O R D

    Setting the BIOS Password

    There are two main varieties of BIOS used in Toshiba notebooks, each with its own unique method for setting and disabling a password. First, determine which type of BIOS is used in your notebook model, as follows:

    Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button.

    Immediately and repeatedly tap the Esc key. If the message "Check System and press the F1 key" appears, then follow the "Esc key BIOS" procedure, below.

    If the computer ignores the Esc key when it's powered-on, or if you see an invitation to press the F2 key to enter the BIOS Setup utility, follow the "F2 key BIOS" procedure, below.

    Almost all Toshiba notebook computers will respond to either the Esc key or the F2 key when they're first powered-on. The Toshiba HWSetup program (found in the Windows Control Panel) may also be used for setting and disabling the BIOS password. See the HWSetup procedure, below.

    To set a BIOS password, start the BIOS Setup program and enter a new password into the password field, per the detailed instructions below. Once a BIOS password is set, it will be necessary to enter it whenever the computer is started, restarted or reset. Choose a password that you can reliably recall, or make note of it in a secure location. If you forget the BIOS password, only a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider can remove it.

    ESC key BIOS Password setting procedure

    1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the Esc key, until the message "Check system. Then press (F1) key" appears on the screen.

    2. Press the F1 key. The BIOS setup program will appear.

    3. Using the arrow keys or the tab key, move to the Password field, and highlight NOT REGISTERED.

    4. Press the spacebar, and then enter a new password at the "Password = " prompt. Press the Enter key.

    5. Enter the password again when the Setup program prompts for it, and press Enter. The Password field will change to REGISTERED.

    6. Press the End key and then the Y key to save changes and exit the BIOS Setup program.

    F2 key BIOS Password setting procedure

    1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the F2 key.

    2. The BIOS setup program should appear. If Windows starts, shut down the computer and try step 1 again.

    3. Use the arrow keys to move to the Security tab.

    4. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password". (This 'User Password' is equivalent to what is otherwise called, in this document, a 'BIOS Password'.)
    (It may be necessary to set a supervisor password before setting a user password. A Supervisor Password may be thought of as a backup mechanism -- if a User Password is forgotten, the Supervisor Password will allow access to the computer. The next section describes how to set a Supervisor Password.)

    5. Press the F5 or the F6 key to navigate to the Password section. Type in a new password at the "Password = " prompt, and then press the Enter key.

    6. Enter the password again when the Setup program prompts for it, and press Enter. The password field will now change to indicate that a password has been entered.

    7. Optionally, set the Password on Boot feature to 'Enable'. Otherwise the computer may not prompt for the password at startup.

    8. Press the F10 key to save changes and exit the BIOS Setup program.

    HWSetup BIOS Password setting procedure (This method works for most notebook models.)

    1. In Windows, click Start, then Control Panel (or Start, then Settings, then Control Panel).

    2. In Control Panel, click on the icon for HWSetup or Toshiba Hardware Setup.

    (If neither of these icons are present, download and install the Toshiba utilities for your model from the Service and Support Website, or use the appropriate BIOS Setup procedure above.)

    3. Click on the Password tab.

    4. Click to select Registered. Alternately, there may be a choice for User or Supervisor Password. Select one or the other

    5. Enter a new password at the "Password = " prompt, and press the Enter key.

    6. Enter the password again when the HWSetup program prompts for it, and press Enter. The Password field will now say REGISTERED or SET.

    7. Optionally, set the Password on Boot feature to 'Enable'. Otherwise the computer may not prompt for the password at startup.

    8. Close the HWSetup program.
    _______________________________________________________________________

    Removing the BIOS Password

    Follow one of the procedures below to remove a BIOS Password. See the section 'Setting the BIOS Password', above, to determine which type of BIOS your computer has. Once the password is removed, the computer will no longer prompt for a password when it's started. Removing the BIOS Password requires you to enter it first. If you cannot recall the BIOS Password, only a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider can remove it.

    ESC Key BIOS Password removing procedure

    1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the Esc key. The computer will display the "Password = " prompt.

    2. Enter the correct password, and press the Enter key. The computer will display "Valid password entered, system is now starting up. Check system. Then press (F1) key"

    3. Press the F1 key. The BIOS setup program will appear.

    4. Using the arrow keys or the tab key, move to the password field, and highlight REGISTERED.

    5. Press the spacebar, enter the correct password, and press the Enter key. The Password field will change to NOT REGISTERED.

    F2 Key BIOS Password removing procedure

    1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the F2 key. The unit will display the "Password = " prompt.

    2. Enter the correct password, press the Enter key. (You may need to press the F2 key after you hit the enter key.)

    3. The BIOS setup program will appear.

    4. Using the arrow keys, move to the Security tab, and to Set User Password.

    5. Press the F5 or the F6 key to navigate to the Password section. Enter the current password at the Old Password prompt, and press Enter. At the New Password prompt, press Enter (without typing anything into the password field). At the Confirm Password prompt, press Enter again (without typing anything into the password field). The password should now be removed.

    6. Press F10 to save and exit from the BIOS Setup program.

    HWsetup BIOS Password removing procedure (This method works for most notebook models.)

    1. In Windows, click Start, then Control Panel (or Start, then Settings, then Control Panel).

    2. In Control Panel, click on the icon for HWSetup or Toshiba Hardware Setup.

    (If neither of these icons are present, download and install the Toshiba utilities for your model from the Service and Support Website, or use the appropriate BIOS Setup procedure above.)

    3. Click on the Password tab.

    4. Click to select Registered. Alternately, there may be a choice for User or Supervisor Password. Select one or the other.

    5. Enter the current password at the "Password = " prompt, press the Enter key. If the HWSetup app prompts for the current password and then twice for the new password, simply press the enter key three times after entering the current password. By pressing the Enter key only, you are selecting no password.

    6. HWSetup should now show that the password is Unregistered, which means there is no password set.

    7. Close the HWSetup program.

    Typically to enter setup you only need to tap either F2 or the Delete key as soon as you turn the computer on. The splash screen will usually tell you which is the correct key. It may be called 'setup', 'BIOS' or 'BIOS Setup'. Hope this helps,
