    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.

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.

    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.

Hi ibrown812...

Sounds like when you had the computer apart you may have forgotten or knocked loose one of the wires going to the lcd screen or the lcd backlight...check for that condition.
If it was working fine before then that almost has to be the reason the lcd is not working

Hi there,

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

CMOS 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.


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.

If you have correctly set the CPU in the BIOS, and saved the settings and still get the error, the CPU is not compatible with your system.

Most likely you have not set the BIOS right or have not saved it.

Monitor on but not working properly

If you just built the computer..the motherboard will give you a warning that some hardware has changed. you have to connect your keyboard and go into the bios and make sure everything is right. To be safe select set to default factory settings , save and reboot the computer. This is to prevent the settings for a previous cpu be used for the new one.

Asus m2n-e sli Cpu changed settings on boots up

I could not find BIOS ver. 1302 for the M2N-E Mb. What I do know: Your dual core 4200 showing up as "unknown". Asus says:
This is because the BIOS does not have the relative CPU uCode to support this processor. Please simply update your BIOS to version 0902 or later to resolve this problem.
BIOS 0902 can be downloaded from the link below:

Once you cpu shows up correctly, chances are that your over clocking will work and the bios will stop sending you back to change your settings.
