SOURCE: Your CPU may have a problem

Have you removed all memory, other cards and unhooked all other drives to see if a short exists there? With a 300W PS some other component may be pulling too much that the CPU can't start so it tells you the problem is with the CPU or The CPU its refering to is on the video card? Good Luck, Tim

This message is usually accompanied by another more explicit, like: "Memory changed from 1GB to 2GB. Press F1 to continue". The message should display and go away after pressing F1. Since you cannot press F1 because the keys do nothing, chances are your keyboard is disconnected, which should display a message indicating this failure.
Try pressing the ScrLk (Scroll Lock) key as messages are being displayed to catch all
messages (they go by quickly) and stop them before they disappear.
If that's the case, then reconnect the keyboard and try again.
Good luck!

You will need to press delete and keep tapping it as soon as you turn it on. You should then be in the BIOS, look around for an option that is similar to "Reset to Default Settings" and use that option. If you are still experiencing that problem, try clearing the CMOS by unplugging the power cord from your computer, take the battery on the motherboard out for at least 10 seconds, then put them all back it.

If it is still not working, you can use another computer to find the BIOS Update/Firmware for that motherboard. Make a bootable floppy disc and then flash the BIOS. That information can be found in the motherboard manual.

Dell Inspiron 530. At start up gives CMOS checksum error defaults loaded. Options press F1, F2 or F12 computer does not react. Has new CMOS battery. RAM OK. Did CMOS clear and password reset. What else can...


When a Power Supply is plugged into power, there is a constant 5 Volts present. The 5 Volt Standby Power.

You press the Power On button.
This in turn presses against the Power On switch, located inside it's plastic assembly.

The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
Temporary closing it activates the Soft Power On circuit.
A 5 Volt circuit that utilizes the 5 Volt Standby Power.

The Soft Power On circuit 'excites' the Power Supply, and turns it on.
(Sounds like a seedy novel)

The first chipset (Integrated Circuit) to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
The Basic Input/Output System program is initialized.

BIOS looks to see what devices are connected, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.

A checksum is computed as an error-detecting code, to protect the BIOS settings stored in CMOS.
Each time the computer is turned on, this number is re-computed; and checked against stored values.

If they do not match an error message is generated, to tell you the CMOS memory contents may have been corrupted; and therefore some settings may be wrong.
Your BIOS assumed the settings were incorrect, and loaded BIOS default settings; stored in BIOS.

(Default = factory settings)

CMOS Checksum Error Defaults - Loaded

New battery? Nope didn't help.
Clear CMOS, and password reset? Nope didn't help.

Leaves Virus as the problem, or hardware component/s on motherboard; are bad.

My thoughts?
Bad motherboard.

("BAD motherboard. NO,...........you know you have been bad,....don't give me that look. You're a bad motherboard."

Lol!)

That's my diagnosis.


(Unless you put the CMOS battery in upside down.
+ goes UP)

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!!!!

Cmos checksum error - defaults loaded


Ports are usually labelled - look carefully.
Try manufacturers manual.
Could be that keyboard is the larger 5 pin DIN socket (old IBM AT keyboard).
