My computer can not boot -BIOS ROM checksum error

Hi!
I have the problem wit boot of my computer. May be you can help me!System: Athlon XP 2200, Socket A, motherboard: ESC, K7VTA3 V5.0, VIA KT333/VT8235
Computer can not boot, on the screen is following message:
Award BootBlock BIOS v1.0
...
BIOS ROM checksum error
Detecting floppy drive A media...
It is no possible to overwrite BIOS using awdflash exe (ver. from 8.22 to 8.87). The older versions of awdflash are showing error message "System was not new BIOS vesion! Please update ROM BIOS first", the newer versions are detecting Flash type -WINBOND 49F002U/5V and the programm hungs up after warning message "Don't Turn Off Power Or Reset System!".
I have changed CMOS battery, cleared the content of the CMOS memory using jumper on the motherboard - no changes.
I can boot DOS using floppy drive, but I can not rename or copy any file on the floppy disk.
How to resolve this problem? Is it possible, that flash memory is not damaged, or I have to change flash?

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.

Mo bo K7VTA 3 vers2 will not properly identify 1.4 Athlon chip - sees it as 900 Athlon. Ditto for 1800 XP - comes out as a 1.15. Using PC2700 DDR in lieu of PC2100. Can that be the problem?


Hi,
Set FSB frequency from 100 to 133 and your CPU should be working at correct speed. The settings that you should apply are:
  • JP2: short pins 2-3,
  • JP3: short pins 1-2.
Jumpers are located near CMOS battery.

If this is the solution for your problem, please rate my post.

Here is the list of compatible processors for your motherboard:

AMD Athlon MP 1.0G, 1.2G, 1500+, 1600+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+ (Palomino)
AMD Athlon MP 2000+, 2200+, 2400+, 2600+ (Thoroughbred)
AMD Athlon MP 2800+ (Barton)
AMD Athlon XP 1500+, 1600+, 1700+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+ (Palomino)
AMD Athlon XP 1600+, 1700+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+, 2200+, 2400+, 2600+, 2700+, 2800+ (Thoroughbred)
AMD Athlon XP 2500+, 2600+, 2800+, 3000+, 3200+ (Barton)
AMD Athlon XP 2000+, 2200+, 2400+ (Thorton)

AMD Sempron 3000+ (Barton)
AMD Duron 600, 650, 700, 750, 800, 850, 900, 950 (Spitfire)
AMD Duron 1.0G, 1.1G, 1.2G, 1.3G (Morgan)
AMD Duron 1.4G, 1.6G, 1.8G (Applebred)
You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.

PROCESSOR


Your M/B support Socket 462 (also called Socket A) is a PGA socket designed for AMD K7 family of processors. This socket can be used with AMD Athlon and Duron processors ranging in speed from 600 MHz to 2200 MHz (3200+) and with bus frequences ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz (400 MHz DDR)

Athlon (Socket A) (600 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Athlon XP (1333 MHz - 2333 MHz, or 1500+ - 3200+)
Athlon MP (1000 MHz - 2133 MHz)
Duron (550 MHz - 1800 MHz)
Sempron (socket A) (1500 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 2200+ - 3300+)
Mobile Athlon 4 (850 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Mobile Athlon XP-M (Socket A) (1200 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 1400+ - 3000+)
Mobile Duron (650 MHz - 1200 MHz)

I Recommend to go for Athlon XP with good cooling fan. :)
