Looks like your CMOS battery may be getting weak. Note the number and voltage on the battery on your motherboard, usually about the size of a quarter, and replace it. When you first boot up after replacement you need to go into the BIOS because the CMOS settings need to be set/verified and do a Save & Exit.

Note: Before replacing the battery, turn power OFF, unplug the power cord, and press and hold the power button for 5 seconds to "bleed" any capacitors.

Thanks for using Fixya.

    For additional information refer to the manual link below:



    D102GGC2 Manual



    Go to page 47 and page 51. Your battery is a CR2032 or equivalent.

I don't know what kind of unit you are useing.
You need to watch the screen when it boots up.
It will say check sum error, press ? F-2 to continue or F-1 to enter setup.??
Enter the setup screen and change the date and time.
Save ? F-10 and exit.
I hope this has helped you.

What is "the firmware has detected that a CMOS checksum error occurred.Press the Enter key to continue. The firmware has detected that the system date/time has not been set." What is this error.


I assume that you entered the BIOS after replacing the battery and set the date and time? If you cannot get to the BIOS after receiving this message, it usually means that the BIOS has become corrupted, either by failure or by virus. You may be able to reflash it if you can download a bios update from the manufacturer.

My computer dont display any thing . But when i remove smps supply cmos bettery and ram. Then put in each place to run the computer. And gives cmos checksum error. What i do as that.


This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.


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.
hope this helps

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~

Hi promano67

When you "start" the computer, and the {"Screen"} displays a "Error Message."[CMOS] "error checksum!"

Settings: "Default" loaded.A "checksum error" shows that:

The ("Boot-up Settings "have been changed?"), ie. "Booting OS."

*Boot File 'missing'.

"This can 'occur' if the computer was "shut-down unexpectedly."

Force Shut-down : Power lost; due to 'low battery...'

A ("Power Surge") can cause this 'problem' also.

"What 'happens is that the [CMOS] settings are lost!".
"To fix the problem!"

Do the following:

  • "Restart / Boot the computer.

  • Next, verify if the 'error message' displays?

  • If you are still getting the message?

  • "You will have to "Remove the CMOS battery form the computer!"

  • Shut-down the computer.

  • "Unplug the computer from the {Wall Out-let}.

  • Remove the Lithium battery from the "Notebook."

  • There is a compartment (underneath) the "Notebook that 'store' the CMOS battery."

  • "You will need a {very small Phillips screwdriver}._953.jpg *Remove the CMOS battery for: [30 minutes].

  • !Important: If you have to do it again?

  • Remove the CMOS battery for a {'longer amount of time'}.

  • Replace the "CMOS battery."

  • Next, "Only plug the Power Adapter into the computer.

  • "Do not - replace the "Lithium battery!"

  • Once you have completed these 'task'.

  • "Restart the computer."

  • "Press the [F2] key, to 'enter' the CMOS / BIOS Setup!" _951.jpg

  • Next, 'reset' (all) "Values to the Default Settings."

  • "Press the [F10] key to 'Save' the changes!"

!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

AFTER SWITCHING ON, SCREEN STAYS FROZEN AFTER SAYING CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR- DEFAULTS LOADED


Hi there,

When starting your PC, the following error message is displayed:

CMOS wrong
CMOS MEMORY size WRONG
CMOS Checksum Bad
CMOS checksum error defaults loaded
Warning! CPU has been changed please re-enter cpu settings in the cmos setup and remember to save before quit!
You are prompted to:

Press F1 to resume
Press F2 to load default values and continue


This is due to the fact that the CMOS, which contain data related to the BIOS, has been reinitialized and that your PC has been reset to factory settings.

Solutions:

Reinitializing the BIOS
  • Change BIOS battery
    • If the problem persist this may be due to the fact that the battery powering the CMOS (when the computer is shut down allows the CMOS to store information), is depleted.
    • The CMOS battery is a small pin found on the mother board, you can refer to the manual provided with your motherboard to change it or have the nearby computer technician change it for you if you don't want to risk any damage.
    • More information with: Replacing the battery of your motherboard (CMOS battery)
Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.
Cheers!!!!

Pc "bios"problem


this looks like you have kept the bios password and you forgot it. just do one thing open the cpu case to access the inside of the system and then just remove the battery in it. wait for 5 min and again plug in the battery. thats it your bios memory password will be reset.
2nd solution without removing battery. just reset the bios as shorting the jumper pins. consult your motherboard book to know where to find the bios reset. it will be written as CLEAR CMOS.

How to solve CMOS checksum and timer errors?


Hello,

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.
