Question about EliteGroup K7VTA3 V5.0 Motherboard
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.

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.
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.
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.
hope this helps you
