Question about Intel D945GCZ Motherboard
When my computer starts, an error notification appears:Press Enter to continue...I press, then...The firmware has detected that a CMOS checksum error occurred.Press Enter to continue...I press again, then..The firmware has detected that the system has not been setPress Enter to continue...After I press this time, it goes to window and starts as usually but the time is reset to 12am of 01.01.2007. This makes some program disable. When I reset it to the current time, it works. But next time when I start my computer, the error appears again and the time is reset again too.Sometimes, when I'm running photoshop or a program that eats large memory, my system will automatically reboots!So, is there anyone knowing to solve the CMOS checksum and CMOS timer errors of my D945gcpe intel motherboard? Please help me. Thank you very much!
Your backup battery is to weak to save the cmos data. Open your computer case and look for a round silver battery that looks like a quarter. Remove it and go to Radio Shack or a drug store battery section and get a replacement. The battery number is probably CR2032 but may be CR2025 or CR2016. insert the new battery and power up your computer, this time when you set the time and date the settings will stay when you turn it off.
I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

I also have the same problem and I tried changing battery several times now. When the battery is new, problem solved but within one or two weeks the same occurs again. Seems like the battery gets drained quickly. My other computer having a D965 board has the same problem. I'm looking for a solution.

Your Cmos or (RTC) battery is dead, it is the small coin shaped battery on your motherboard. Power down and remove the battery from the mobo and replace. Power up and go into system BIOS..usually F2 during the manufacturers splash screen. Go to time and date and set to current. save changes and exit. Computer will now reboot as normal.

Tips for a great answer:
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

For your problem the computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this may be caused by any of the below reasons.
New hardware has been recently installed
If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS. Enter CMOS setup and save the settings and exit. If you continue to get errors continue to the next step.
Error or confliction with settings in CMOS
If no new hardware has been added or you continue to get this prompt verify no error or conflictions exist in CMOS. Press the key to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct.
If your time and date are not set correctly, your battery is more than likely bad. Try setting the correct time and date, save the settings and then reboot. If after turning off the computer the time and date get reset again replace the battery.
If the time and date are correct and everything else appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults.
If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, your CMOS battery is bad. We recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.
hope this will help you.
