Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S169 Notebook
Can anyone tell me what these messages that I receive on startup mean:
"System CMOS Checksum bad-Default configuation used"
"System BIOS Shadowed"
"Video BIOS Shadowed"
My computer was working fine; then one day...Bamm; it keeps freezing up on me....I can't always boot up when I want to. When I do boot up and it's working, everything is fine, then I click on something and she freezes up. I used my original disc to put a whole new XP operation system on it....I cleaned off the heat sink.....I've run the Toshiba diagnostics program and everything passes....then Bamm, she freezes up.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
1. The battery on the motherboard has died. Replace battery.
2. The BIOS is corrupt, reflash BIOS.
Most likely #1, very rarely #2. Pop out the battery on the motherboard and replace it, after the first time you boot up your computer, go into BIOS and set everything the way it should be for your computer (usually just time and date) and then after each sequential time you reboot, that should take care of your problem.
