CHECKSUM CANNOT MOVE COMPUTER FROM A BLUE SCREEN


In order to understand what a checksum error is, it is important to first learn what a checksum is. A checksum is a redundancy check during a computer's start up process, which makes sure that the computer's data is intact and unhampered. The data is scanned and tested for accuracy, either based on how well it relates to data elsewhere or based on previous data that was stored on the same computer. Essentially, all of the bits of data in a particular document or file are added up and a number or hash is created. This number or hash can then be compared to the number or hash generated from the same file on another person's computer or at a previous time on the same computer.
When does a Checksum Error Occur?

Although a checksum error can occur at any time while a computer is comparing data, it is most commonly present during a computer's startup procedure. During a computer's start up processes, the BIOS settings, which are stored in a CMOS memory chip, are computed and then checked against the previous value. If the computed values do not match exactly, the computer warns the user with a checksum error message that the data may have been changed or corrupted between start up cycles. All BIOS programs present a different error and therefore will either continue with booting or refuse to boot until the problem is corrected.

Depending on the type and the severity of the error generated, there may be one of a variety of ways to rectify the issue. The most common cause of a checksum error during the startup process is a faulty battery that is not providing sufficient power to the motherboard when the computer is off. However, motherboard malfunctions and viruses can also contribute to checksum errors.
Other Types of Checksum Errors

Another type of checksum error may occur with any program at any time. It is usual for many programs to now provide checksum information when that program is downloaded. Using a checksum program or MD5 hash checker, a user can quickly compare the checksum of a downloaded program with the checksum that the software developer provides. This is a common way to make sure that users are downloading the proper program and that no data was corrupted during the download process. Checksum errors originating from download errors can easily be corrected by re-downloading the problematic program.

Checksum error


It depends on what file gave the checksum error. You need to copy that file to overwrite the one that gave the checksum error.

Getting a CMOS checksum bad error when starting my Acer M5640 Desktop with Windows 7 Thanks Daniel


Solutions to CMOS Checksum Bad Error

The CMOS Checksum Bad Error can be fixed easily by following the listed steps carefully.

CMOS Battery may not be functioning properly

If you suspect that your CMOS battery is not functioning properly, you can easily change it. Before changing your battery, reboot your computer to make sure that the error still exists. If it does, go into your CMOS and write down all of the settings. If all the settings are lost, you can usually retrieve them from your computer manufacturer. Now locate the battery and remove it, you might need to consult your computer's manual or technical support to remove your battery (the battery a flat, shiny silver colored and coin-shaped). Take down the CMOS battery's information such as volt, size, etc. Once you have your new battery, you can replace it and reenter your CMOS settings. If your battery was the cause of the CMOS Checksum Bad Error, you should have solved the problem.

Your BIOS may have been updated

If your BIOS have been updated recently, your CMOS settings may have reset. Make sure that the values entered in the BIOS are correct or simply reset them to the default settings. If you believe that a virus has updated your BIOS settings, run a virus scan and make sure that the BIOS settings are back to the default.

The Computer may not have been shut down properly

Sometimes when running MS Windows, if you shut down your computer without first properly shutting down your operating system, it will corrupt the CMOS settings causing the CMOS Checksum Bad Error. You can easily avoid this error by making sure that you completely shut down your computer properly before turning off the main power. Usually this entails going into the Start Menu, clicking on Turn Off Computer/ Shut Down. If improper shutdown was the cause of the error, you may have solved the issue.

What is a code p0601 for a 2008 saturn vue


P0601 ENGINE CONTROL MODULE CHECKSUM ERROR


  • The nerve center of the fuel injection system is the engine control module (ECM)
  • The ECM constantly supervises the information from various sensors, and regulates the systems that start after vehicle performance.
  • The ECM is also empowered to control all the diagnostic functions of the system.
  • It can detect operational flaws and caution the driver through the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)
  • It also records and stores a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) which detects the likely problem- making parts to help the technician while repairing.
  • In order to house the program information and the calibrations required for engine, trans-axle diagnostics operation an electrically erasable programmable read only memory (EEPROM) is used.
  • For detecting errors in the software the ECM uses a specially devised value known as the checksum.
  • The checksum (self explanatory) is a value that is the sum total of all the numbers in the software added together.
  • If the values recorded by the ECM and the checksum do not match then a checksum error is highlighted.

Sounds like you CMOS battery is FLAT, please locate and replace, it is a 3.6V flat "Cell" This may just sort you out. Checksum error is because, something is different from the stored checksum it has in memory.
