Question about Biostar M7VIW-D Motherboard

1 Answer

I have an M7VIW-D mainboard. I'm getting a BIOS checksum error on boot, and I think it changed to the default settings because the onboard speaker began singing to me while it announced I had a floppy drive error (I don't have a floppy drive--the boot sequence had defaulted to its original settings). I got a blue screen when I tried to change them back. It took six different tries to get into Windows without lockups. Windows Startup Repair also froze. It's currently running, but it's been acting like a trouble-child on Crack. Any ideas?

NO ONBOARD VIDEO


Hello here is the ASUS homepage:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P5N73-AM&p=1&s=22

Here is a list of beep codes:

http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

Your pci-e graphic card is failing or has a defect.
The problem could also be the power supply, not giveing enough power.
When you add a pci-e graphic card on the mainboard, the onboard graphic should deactivate itselves.
Try to remove the pci-e graphic card, and use the onboard graphic.
If still no picture, change the power supply.
Its not possible to change settings in the bios blindfolded.
You can reset the bios by removeing the cmos battery.
But ofcouse it could also be the mainboard itselves failing.
This is rarely happening, so i hope its just the power supply.
Try also to look for visual defects on the mainboard, especially the condensators on the mainboard.


Good luck

Bios rom checksum error detecting floppy drive A error. system halt


Hello download the manual here:

http://www.msi.com/service/download/

By entering the ms xxxx number, from the mainboard.
When you find your mainboard, click on download and select manual.
Download the manual, and you need adobe reader to read the content.

Your cmos battery on the mainboard, has lost it`s power and need to be renewed (the bios can`t remember It`s settings)
The battery is a CR 2032 watch type:

1_23_2013_1_02_19_am.jpg

And fairly easy to change, with the shinny site upwards.

But you have to setup the bios, clock, date, boot settings when the job is done.
This is why, you need the manual.

Good luck

The CMOS Checksum Bad Error during the pre-booting process only indicates that the CMOS battery is exhausted and it can not no longer save the current BIOS settings, Time settings and many more things.

The first and and the only way, according to me, to solve this problem is to replace the CMOS battery.

Please let us know, if this solution have helped you.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Bios rom checksum error, boot block bios vI.0


Error BIOS ROM CHECKSUM - SYSTEM HALTED.
Cause Bad Hardware
Solution Unfortunately this indicates that your computer BIOS ROM chip or Motherboard is physically bad. It is recommended that you contact your computer manufacturer or take the computer into local service center for repair.
If you wish to repair this issue yourself the motherbard will need to be replaced.
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.

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 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

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.

Unplug mains from wall
remove lid
find CMOS reset jumper (usually 3 pins with a jumper/link on two of them near the button cell battery on the mainboard).
Move jumper to other position, then move jumper back again to original position.
fit lid and connect mains supply and switch on.

If you can go into the BIOS, set Defaults and set the date and time, Then try to boot.
If it has been of for a while and time is wrong when ou next boot it, replace the button cell battery on the mainboard.

Try pressing F2 / Del key during startup. That should bring the bios setup. Now Restore that defaults & install OS on your HDD. If you are not using Floppy drive, disable the onboard floppy controller from BIOS.

Cmos checksum error after flashing the bios


I had a similar experience after upgrading my RAM. When you reset your CMOS and have default settings maybe you should check if your RAM timings are correct. I could not get mine to load with both sticks in until I fixed the timings from the default settings.
