Make sure your using new cmos battery not yet been use and then set date in your bios and save it after finish.
still doesn't work?
try update your cmos that migth be the problem note! remember always take care of the risk on updating flashing cmos on power interuption never power off if still flashing. or if you update and flush it before it might be a bad flash of your cmos try bring it up to early state or restore your backup cmos firmware or download it to its main manufacture

Foxconn n1996 chip needs replacing as had power cut as updating bios


Reboot the computer.
If error still occurs after rebooting the computer enter CMOS setup and check all values, this includes verifying the time and date are correct.

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.

Once everything has been verified and changed make sure you save and exit CMOS setup.

If everything appears to be correct and the issue persists try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults or Reset Configuration Data.


If this issue continues to occur after you turn off your computer off it is possible that the CMOS battery may be failing or already bad. Before considering replacing the CMOS battery try leaving your computer on for several days.

If a BIOS update has been run on the computer the values stored in CMOS may have been reset. Enter CMOS setup re-enter all values and then save and exit CMOS setup.


If you're unable to enter the CMOS setup or after running a BIOS update your computer no longer keeps its values the incorrect BIOS update may have been installed for your computer or the version downloaded may be corrupt. We suggest trying to update the BIOS again or reverting back to an earlier version.

Hope it helps

How to save BIOS and change mother board CR2032 Lithium battery


if you only take 5 to 20 sec you might not lose any bios Cmos settings
im not sure what or why you want to save the settings for

once the Cmos battery has been removed for more than 30 - 60 sec your cmos settings will be restored which means no password and failsafe defaults
you could just restore failsafe or optimised defaults if you lose any Cmos settings
you will need to reset the password and the time and date


Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

hope this helps you

Hello, when I put my pc running it says CMOS checksum error press F1 to enter or Del to enter setup, but I press Del when I save changes "save and exit" the computer restarts, but this time...


The Checksum error basically shows that boot settings which were previously set has been changed or reset. This usually happens when the battery loses its charge and thus fail to retain the CMOS settings. This can also be caused by a power surge or a damaged motherboard. But most of the times it would be the battery problem.

You can try replacing the CMOS battery and enter the values back into CMOS or reset values to default. Then switch off and boot up again.
Hope this works. Good Luck. ~SmokinJoe~

How to chang bios settings password intel Dg43nb board i m loss my bios password


All mother board has a CMOS, complementary metal oxide semiconductor, battery. The main purpose for the CMOS battery is to store the system time, date and bios settings even if the computer is turned off or the main battery dies.
Turn off the computer (laptop) unplug it. Remove the Phillips screws that secure the motherboard cover then release the cover from the clips on the bottom of the plastic casing. Lay the cover aside then locate the CMOS battery cable on the right side of the motherboard. Unplug the cable then remove the battery. After a few minutes plug the CMOS battery into the motherboard... Replace the screws then turn the computer (laptop) back over. The CMOS battery is unplugged for more than a few minutes your BIOS will be reset to the default manufacturer settings. (Password removed) now you can set new password for your bios..

Bios rom checksum error.. system halted


This error comes when there is low cmos voltage so motherboard flash memory forgot the bios settings.
For that open cpu and then pull cmos cell from mother board buy new cmos cell and replaced it.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios and set time and date and boot option in bios then save settings.
Then it works again if it not works then you need to update firmware for your bios .
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My computer's bios doesn't save anything


Here's the manufacturer info link
http://www.intel.com/products/motherboard/DG31PR/configs.htm

BIOS Loses Date and Time (or Changed Settings Not Saved)
A coin-cell battery (CR2032) powers the real-time clock and CMOS memory. When the voltage of the CMOS battery drops below a certain level, the BIOS Setup program settings stored in CMOS RAM (for example, the date and time) might not be accurate. If you find that date and time is incorrect or if you make BIOS setting changes but they are not saved, replace the battery with an equivalent one. Caution Risk of explosion if the battery is replaced with an incorrect type. Batteries should be recycled where possible. Disposal of used batteries must be in accordance with local environmental regulations.
To replace the battery, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Disconnect the computer’s power cord from the AC power source (wall outlet or power adapter).
  2. Remove the computer cover.
  3. Locate the battery on the board. battery1.jpg
  4. With a medium flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the battery free from its connector. Note the orientation of the “+” and “-” on the battery.
  5. Install the new battery in the connector, orienting the “+” and “-” correctly.
  6. Replace the computer cover.

Mercury motherboard pi945gcm cmos setting dose not save shut down machine then power on machine see press f1 date & time not save


This sounds like your battery may be bad or not locked into place fully. Also on the mother board there is a cmos jumper that is used to clear your bios check to make sure the jumper is set correctly an also inspect the jumper to make sure it will make good contact to the jumper posts. Good luck I hope this helps. Also when you set the time in your bios make sure to exit with f 10 key or whatever the save and exit key is for you bios.
