Bad BIOS checksum: the software on a chip on the motherboard has become corrupted.

Sometimes, you can find a "BIOS update" on the manufacturer's web-site, so that the contents of that chip can be refreshed,
i.e., by booting from a diskette (or from a USB memory-stick) that contains the replacement software.

Contact a qualified technician, and pay them for 1 hour of labour.
Or, replace the motherboard.

SOURCE: BOOT BLOCK COMPATIBLE VERSION VER

click this link or copy and paste it in your browser address bar:
http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P5SD2-VM&p=1&ft=3&os=29#P5SD2-VM-0515.zip

In the most recent (top) listing, click the GLOBAL that does NOT say DLM at the end (the second GLOBAL link)
Make note of where the file is being saved!

Unzip the file using winzip or power archiver or some such utility (Depending on your OS, Windows may simply open it for you)

Copy the extracted file P5SD2VM.ROM either to a floppy, or burn it to a CD.
Put the disk with the file on it in the appropriate drive and reboot the system.
The motherboard should now repair itself, and give you the latest bios in the process.

This will fix your system, but I'd get a program called FIX-CIH from http://www.grc.com/fix-cih.htm
Run that program to make sure you aren't infected with the CIH virus (one of very very few viruses that will kill your BIOS like your is) Just to be sure it wasn't a virus that did it.

That should FixYa.

How do you flash the BIOS


What happens when you turn the computer on?

If the bios is working enough to enable you to boot from a CD download the new bios from asus along with there AFUDOS.exe flash utility and make a bootable CD and copy both to it.

If the bios is completly none functional you should be getting this msg when you turn the computer on,
Boot Block Compatible Version Ver .010
Bad BIOS checksum. Starting BIOS Recovery
Checking for floppy . .
Floppy not found
Checking for CD rom . . .
CD not found
Checking for floppy . .
Floppy not found
Checking for CD rom . . .
CD not found

Repeat adinfinitum.
If this is the case you need download the most recent BIOS from compaq and either copy it to a bootable CD if you have this capability or buy a floppy drive for $5 and make a bootable floppy on a working computer and copy this BIOS file to it. Then rename the bios file to A8N32SLI.ROM.

You may not even need make the floppy bootable but I would just in case.

Stick the floppy in the drive turn the computer on and you will see

BAD BIOS CHECKSUM, STARTING BIOS RECOVERY...


I have seen this be a CMOS battery many times. Also, you can try flashing the BIOS if you continue to have troubles after replacing the battery. You should be able to find that information on the motherboard manufacturer's website.

My computer can not boot -BIOS ROM checksum error


to be honest if you have tried to re-flash your bios, and it did not work you still either have hte wrong version or the disc drive your using to flash it from is faulty. try another floppy drive/disc and try again. if that dont work. to be honest it's not worth getting it repaired just go out and spend £30-40 on a new mobo. sorry i'm not more helpfull but i dont believe it's worth spending that much time and effort on an old system like that with this kind of problem. good luck to you. let me know how you get on ok.

Weird error message on boot. BIOS error?


This is a strange one. Does the BIOS on your motherboard detect your hard drives at all? I'd try the lowest level first. If so, then try to boot from your XP CD ROM (hopefully this should work). Try to go into recovery console to see if your hard drive can even be mounted by the system. I'd check there.

If you still have issues,try to reflash your mobo BIOS to the most current one. Could be a flaky BIOS issue.

Please Tell me, ASUS P4S8X-MX Problemn


First of all, try to reseat all the cables inside your computer just make sure there aren't any loose connections.

If that doesn't work you will have to reset your BIOS. (Follow the instructions in your motherboard manual.)

If even after resetting the BIOS the problem is not solved, you may have to replace your CMOS Battery.
