Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
My brother was trying to copy a file from my computer via "hard disk -slave." But he forgot to take out the jumpers from the hard disk on my computer and his hard disk that was supposed to be slaved. Both hard disk jumpers were set on Primary while connected to the IDE cable. Then my computer crashed. i then formatted my cpu. But this time, when I turn on the system, a message error pops up which state "Cmos Bad Checksum." I tried to clear the RTC(Real Time Clock) RAM by removing the onboard battery and moving the jumper cap from pins 1-2(default) to pins 2-3. Kept the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap back to pin 1-2. Then I reinstalled the battery and turned on my computer. But still the "Cmos Bad Checksum" error still pops up. When I turn on my system, it keeps on rebooting.One time I managed to get through. I take a look at on the device manager and on the processor, there appears to be two processors, when in fact, I only got one. By the way, here's my computer specs
Bios Type: AMI
Bios Date: August 29, 2007
Bios OEM Date:Ver. 8.00.12-0807
Chipset: Via 82C314 rev 0
MotherBoard: ASUS P5VDC-MX
Maximum Memory: 2048MB
Reseat your ram modules and remove the 2nd hdd
If same thing , then reset the Bios to default ,save and exit
If same thing ? assuming you have more then 1 stick of ram,, try booting with 1 stick removed . to eliminate ram modules being bad
then switch ram untill you have verified ram chips are or aren't bad
Hope this helps
