Re: bios set up any how misplaced by me
Some motherboard bios have an option DEFAULT BIOS CONFIGURATION look for it in the bios setup of your motherboard. But before you can exit in the bios setup make sure to save the new configuration some bios command to save is F5 or F10

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.
Diagnosis: The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is probably faulty. It could also be another component on the motherboard.
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 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. Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work. During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
I assume that you have the password? Restart your computer. As soon as you see the dell screen, hit the f2 key. This will take you into setup. Look through the different menus and you will find the password options somewhere. You should be able to disable it there.
#1. Does the CPU fan run if not then you may have a conductivity problem between fan and CPu. Did you use thermal paste or grease?
If fan is running follow directions below from my manual for MS9377C+ mainboard.
Go into the BIOS setup ,go to CPU setup, select proper voltage for you CPU. On Advanced setup page see if the hyperthreading function is revaeled. If so your CPU has this function. Set "Enabled " to test HT CPU function. If this doesn't work try "Disabling" the function. Good luck. I am about to attempt tp upgrade to a Prescott 3.0E which the box says this board supports. Sure hope so . Am running a 1.7 now. firstname.lastname@example.org
Can you still access the bios setup page? It could be a flash gone wrong. Flashing could have failed, or wrong flash, or other reason. You can try flashing again, but tell me step by step how the problem goes.
Its due to your default CMOS setup does not match with your CPU configuration especially with CPU speed.
To fixed the above problem goto BIOS and navigate settings of CPU, speed etc. Set the speed with the proper value as per manual. And save the settings.
Infuture when you will load default, at that time also set the CPU settings.
The CMOS battery might not be connected properly or may be its not producing enough power as per needed by board. So have a look with another battery. Also clean the connection point of the CMOS battery.
I followed the suggestion of changing the BIOS configuration to the recovery mode, however one thing was missing - it required a startup disk and I didn't have one. I then changed the BIOS configuration to the config (pins 2 & 3) mode, booted up and went to the BIOS/CMOS setup and a new menu tab appeared called "maintenance". I went to the advance tab and selected USB configuration and, instead of a blank screen, there appeared a selection for USB support and it showed disabled. I changed the setting to enabled and three more lines of information regarding USB came up, but required not further changes. I went to F10 and saved and exited and I now have me USB capability back.
