Heat id the major killer of computers....it could be you need to clean things up so it stays cooler.

Could be a bad power supply as well.

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

Motherboard red light stay on and computer won't turn on. Any ideas on what the promblem might be?


First try shutting down you're system. Than turn the PS off at the rocker switch (Back of PS). Ground you're self by touching the the PS. Remove you're memory and re-seat it. Than boot the system.
Check the standby LED. See if it lights green.
Pull the cmos battery and check its voltage. Anything under 2.4 volts replace the battery. Normally the MB LED displays green. (Standby power).
This means the MB is maintaining / charging the cmos battery. If the battery can no longer maintain charge this will cause the MB LED to turn Red. Built into the mother board is a small switch. When the system is shut down the MB maintains power to the cmos. If the standby switch fails to function correctly the LED will turn Red. Lets hope the problem is the cmos battery. The internal switch can not be repaired.

Cheers'

Manual reset motherboard: Soyo SY-K7VME


Bios settings are retained by the Motherboard Battery in the CMOS. Disconnecting the battery clears CMOS and returns the settings to their original state. Typically this can be done by simply removing the CMOS battery and waiting about 15 seconds before reinserting and booting PC. Nowadays most Motherboard manufacturers supply a jumper to not only disconnect the battery but also ground the CMOS to effectively drain any residual power.

The instructions for your MB are found below. JP5 is located to the left of the battery and next to the PCI 2 slot on your MB. There is a Manual for your MB on this site and the MB layout can be found at

http://www.fixya.com/support/p281070-soyo_sy_k7vme_motherboard/manual-35533/page-5

Follow the steps below to clear the CMOS memory.

1. Clear the CMOS memory by momentarily shorting pin 2-3 on jumper JP5. Its white cap can easily identify this jumper.

2. Put the jumper back to 1-2 to allow writing of new data into the CMOS memory.

I am working on a inel. The 5V light on the MB was blinking and of course, the PC wouldn't turn on. I replaced the P/S and the issue seemed solved - now the 5V light is on steady but the PC has an issue...


It sounds like your CMOS Battery is dead. As soon as you power down, your cmos loses it's information, however, keeping the battery in the motherboard completes the circuit and prevents it from restarting. Your best bet is to look what kind of battery your CMOS runs off of, this is common amongst almost all motherboards, albeit I can't remember which one it is off the top of my head. Anyway, Buy a new battery and replace old CMOS battery with new one. This should resolve your problem. If you still have problems after this, your motherboard might be damaged and you should look into getting it repaired or replaced. I hope this helps.
