CMOS Checksum error - Defaults loaded

Hi

I Am getting the subject matter come up on my screen each time I switch on the PC. Then it also says:

Warning! CPU has been changed.
Please enter CPU Speed CMOS setup.

I have the motherboard CD and I know how to get to my BIOS & CMOS pages, but need some instruction to correct this error.

Kind Regards
Sharon

    Please could you direct me:

    Do I change the actual speed of CPU in:



    * Standard CMOS Features option

    * Advanced BIOS Features Setup Option



    If you could give me a more advanced direction I would appreciate it.

Hi,
step 1: 1st change your Cmos battery
step 2: goto cmos setup, change your cpu speed, what speed of cpu are you using and what mhz of
your cpu.
step 3: save your setup and restart your computer... i hope u will get rid of this problem.

Note:-
------
if you give me your system detail i can explain more better than this...
what is your system configuration:
P1 or P2 or P3 or P4 or Intel Dual Core or Core 2 Duo
Cpu speed : 150mhz or 200mhz or 500mhz or 800mhz or 1Ghz or 2.2Ghz or 3Ghz
Mother board : Intel Pentium or Sis or Via or Mercury or Asus etc....

mail me your configuration : mohammedehsanullah@gmail.com

When the CPU speed stored in BIOS and the actuall speed of CPU differs then this error comes.

To fix this you have to select the actuall speed of your attached CPU to the board. Just set the actuall speed and save the changes. It will fix your problem.

Thanks

    Dear it varies from BIOS to BIOS so its not easy to loacte b.coz i dun have the same board. You should try in Chip Setup, or in Advance BIOS.



    Thanks

Dell Inspiron 530. At start up gives CMOS checksum error defaults loaded. Options press F1, F2 or F12 computer does not react. Has new CMOS battery. RAM OK. Did CMOS clear and password reset. What else can...


When a Power Supply is plugged into power, there is a constant 5 Volts present. The 5 Volt Standby Power.

You press the Power On button.
This in turn presses against the Power On switch, located inside it's plastic assembly.

The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
Temporary closing it activates the Soft Power On circuit.
A 5 Volt circuit that utilizes the 5 Volt Standby Power.

The Soft Power On circuit 'excites' the Power Supply, and turns it on.
(Sounds like a seedy novel)

The first chipset (Integrated Circuit) to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
The Basic Input/Output System program is initialized.

BIOS looks to see what devices are connected, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.

A checksum is computed as an error-detecting code, to protect the BIOS settings stored in CMOS.
Each time the computer is turned on, this number is re-computed; and checked against stored values.

If they do not match an error message is generated, to tell you the CMOS memory contents may have been corrupted; and therefore some settings may be wrong.
Your BIOS assumed the settings were incorrect, and loaded BIOS default settings; stored in BIOS.

(Default = factory settings)

CMOS Checksum Error Defaults - Loaded

New battery? Nope didn't help.
Clear CMOS, and password reset? Nope didn't help.

Leaves Virus as the problem, or hardware component/s on motherboard; are bad.

My thoughts?
Bad motherboard.

("BAD motherboard. NO,...........you know you have been bad,....don't give me that look. You're a bad motherboard."

Lol!)

That's my diagnosis.


(Unless you put the CMOS battery in upside down.
+ goes UP)

Cmos checksum error-defaults loaded


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.

The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is probably faulty.
It could also be another component on the motherboard.

Make sure the battery has plenty charge or remove the battery for a while, about 5 minutes to see if that restores it some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

You could check the site for the machine vendor to see if there is a reset jumper.

If that doesn't work then you will need to refresh the BIOS


You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values hopefully against a recent


If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS.

To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting Usually the Delete or F2 but can be other keys
It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.


If you don't know the settings the should be one for optimal defaults - use that one.
You will also need to reset 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.

Press F10 Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work
hope this helps

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

Hi.

The most probable reason you are getting the bad checksum error is you have to set the date and time because you have cleared the CMOS and reset the BIOS.
You should also get a message that says press F1 to load defaults or press a certain key to access setup. Access setup (BIOS) and set the date and time. That should take care of the bad checksum error.
Another good idea is make sure the motherboard battery is not dead either.
