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.

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

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

I used jumper bios reset and now gettin bad checksum error. on the mother board writen that K8N rev 1.01 i downloaded k8n motherboard rom file and renamed as k8n.rom and copied to disket. its deleting and...


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.



Regards.

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!!!!

Computer not working with Samsung LCD TV


Your PC isn't working, the "CMOS Checksum Error" is a BIOS error. It has nothing to do with the monitor.
You have to let the PC load the default settings and try to boot up, if the defaults doesn't work, you have to reconfigure the options in the SETUP program. To enter Setup press "Del" or "F2" in the POST screen.
