Hi, This message "Checking NVRam" is part of the BIOS/CMOS POST even before Windows loads up. Offhand two things you can try: 1. Do a CMOS reset by temporarily moving the jumper near the battery to the opposite pair or by removing the Lithium battery for a couple of minutes or as prescribed by your motherboard's user manual; 2. If #1 is a no go, perhaps you should consider flashing your BIOS. If neither works out, it is possible that you have a hardware/motherboard problem and would require replacement. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back with your motherboard brand/model, how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Another possibility is IRQ/hardware conflict. If you have add-on cards, try switching slots where they are installed, try removing your HD, re-seat your memories.

BIOS NVRAM checking - not passed


I have had even new sticks of ram not work in one machine, but are fine in another. Put the old ram back in and make sure everything works like you want, then try the ram again. If they are still giving problems, unfortunately it looks like even more ram is your solution.

Why lose a router settings after a power outage?


Question:<br> After a power outage <a href="http://www.3anetwork.com/cisco-1900-series-routers-price_c12"><b>Cisco 1900</b></a> lost my router configuration, was saved, reload the configuration, save, reboot and no problem.<br> How to know if my router is properly, all my services run smoothly? Why it happens that configuration is lost?<br> Are there any benefits the settings saved in flash?<br> Answer:<br> Did you check if the NVRAM was empty or running config was empty?<br> If router booted with empty running config, it could be that startup got erased (NVRAM issue) or that it did not load it from startup to running (likely config-reg) issue.<br> Since in your case config-register ix 0x2102 and was not changed, the problem should be with NVRAM.<br> From me exprience, I have seen that in the following cases:<br> - config was not saved to NVRAM;<br> - at the time of powerdown the NVRAM startup file was accessed for editing (e.g. saving running config) and got corrupted or erased;<br> - NVRAM HW issues cause file system problems.<br> Is it reproducible in your case? E.g. if you powercycle the switch, do you see the same problem with config loss? If yes, check the NVRAM content. <a href="http://www.3anetwork.com/cisco-1900-series-routers-price_c12"> <b>Cisco 1900 router</b></a> That could give some hints.

I connected WRT54GL router to Motorola modem per linksys instructions. the router is not able to connect to the internet. please advise


This is most likely due to the Motorola modem still having the Media Access Control (MAC) address of the device that was previously connected the modem in NVRAM.
In order to clear this old MAC address, the easiest thing to do is to unplug the power cable from the modem for 15 to 20 minutes. This allows the NVRAM in the modem to clear and makes it able to accept the new MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged from the power for 15 to 20 minutes, plug the Ethernet cable of the router into the modem and plug the power cord back in to the modem. After the modem syncs back up to the network, it should add the MAC address of the WRT54GL router to its NVRAM and assign it an IP address. This should allow the router to connect your systems to the Internet.

Reset xerox phaser to factory settings


Try performing an NVRAM reset, located in 'Troubleshooting', 'Service tools', 'NVRAM reset'. I would advise printing out a configuration page first 'Information', 'Information Pages', 'Configuration Page'.
Hope this helps.
