First, remove the CMOS battery and power down the pc. Put the battery back into its place and reboot your pc. During the reboot, hit the delete key that will open the BIOS Setup Menu window. Here check and adjust the date and time, exit with the "save settings" option at the bottom of the screen. Reboot the pc. Now check if your pc has the current date and time? If it doesn't, than buy a new cmos battery and repeat the previous steps.

There should be a message somewhere to enter BIOS or "Setup" or CMOS Setup.
Enter the CMOS Setup, check the date and time. Are they current? If not, it may be a CMOS battery that needs to be replaced. First, try entering the CMOS, saving without changing anything, then exiting. After the system boots, power down (not just a restart), then power back up and let me know what happens from there.

You could have a bad cmos battery, Depending on what kind of computer you have you need to hit the button that will let into cmos settings and set them back to factory defaults and see if that works.

    The button is the delete key during the boot up process. That will take you into the bios setup menu. Continue from there.

I THINK YOUR MOTHERBOARD BATTERY MAY BE DAMAGED OR DOWN. YOU HAVE TO REPALCE THE BATTERY AND TRY AGAIN TO START THE PC.

Remove error messages from my computer


1) Computer off unplug from power.
2) Press Power On button in, hold for a count of 10 seconds.
Let go.
Do this procedure 2 more times.
3) Plug back into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn on computer.

The aforementioned procedure resets CMOS back to the factory default settings, and clears CMOS Error Codes.


Doesn't work? Then whatever is causing the error code/s are still present.

For additional questions on this matter please post in a Comment.

How to verify that the CMOS battery needs to replace


<p>The CMOS battery is named after the Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor power. The CMOS has the current date and time functions for desktop and laptop computers. It allows the computer to automatically adjust the time, even on computers that are disconnected for long time. When a computer no longer has the date and time and forget it on every boot, the CMOS battery probably needs replacing. Some computers have messages when the battery is weak, while others just lose the current date and time after each shutdown.<br /> <p>Time & Date Errors<span> </span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p>1. Turn on the computer. Look in the task bar at the bottom right. Make sure the date and time is set correctly. Double-click the time and click the up or down arrow to switch to the correct time. Click on the arrow next to month to change the month. Click "OK" when finished.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Turn off the computer. Wait 3 to 5 minutes and start the machine.<br /> <p><br /> <p>3.

Chek smos errer


You have described you problem incorrectly. I guess the error mess is "CMOS Cheksome error. " I guess.

This messenger comes due to following situations.
1. CMOS battery low. Check for the CMOS battery (most commonly CR2032) power if it is low this message can appear.
2. BIOS has been reset on purpose or by a fault. Set time date and other settings.
3. Motherboard problem. Rarely motherboard will have this issue with CMOS or with the battery powerline making it to lose CMOS Setteings. Change the motherboard or live with it.

My Laptop is Dellstudio15,When I swith on my laptop is showing error while booting it self is: Check date and time settings,System CMOS Checksum is Bad.Please help on this.


This error message means that its time for you to replace you CMOS battery.

CMOS battery is a small battery on the system board that provides power to the Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) chip, even while the computer is turned off. This chip contains information about the system configuration (e.g., hard disk type, floppy drive types, date and time, and the order in which the computer will look for bootable disks). The CMOS battery allows the CMOS to preserve these settings.


Hope this information willbe helpful. Thank you for using FIXYA.

I replaced my Toshiba Tecra M4 tablet CMOS battery and I am still getting the error why is this and how do I fix it? I cant get passed the CMOS error when I boot the computer.


When you replace the CMOS battery, you must wait about 10 minutes with the old battery removed, before fitting the new one (if you had a problem with the error message before) - when you fit the new battery, plug the tablet in and don't turn it on - this will give the new battery a chance to power up all of the CMOS on the board and settle down. Then turn it on, wait for the error message about the date and time being wrong, set the time correctly and the problem has gone.

Booting problem


There are usually three main reasons that a CMOS Checksum Bad Error has occurred. They include:
  • CMOS Battery may not be functioning properly. The battery life may have expired.
  • Your BIOS may have been updated (either by user or possibly a virus)
  • The computer may not have been shut down properly e.g. shutting off the computer's main power without first shutting down the computer (MS Windows requires you to shut down your computer before shutting off the power).
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

Ref GA-81PE1000L Error message on boot up


all the computer bios settings are stored even when the computer is off (like time and fsb)

these are stored due to the help of a cmos battery

when this battery finishes it gives the CMOS Checksum error Default loaded error

all you need to do is replace the cmos cell

it is a mercury cell (looks like a silver coin) and will be placed on your motherboard

it is very very cheap so go buy one and replace it and be happy

Cmos checksum error defaults loaded


Make sure the battery your using is brand new. If it is then go ahead and get into the Bios and make sure the date and time is set properly. Once you do that then go ahead and save the changes and exit.

After this go ahead and see if the CMOS exit checksum defaults comes up if not then go ahead and turn off the computer and unplug it. Then after about 5 minutues plug the computer back up and turn it on and if the message doesn't come up then its resolved.

If the cmos checksum error comes back up then try a brand new battery, should be a 2032 battery and then go thru the same steps in setting the date and time and save changes and exit and if the message doesn't come back then unplug the system again and leave it unplugged for 5 minutes. Now plug it back up and if the message stays away the problem is resolved. it the message comes back then that means the motherboard isn't reconizing the batteries and the motherboard would need to be replaced.
