Hi jino284, you're bios has become corrupted. One reason for this can be the cmos battery is no longer holding its 3volt
charge. Virus can also cause corruption. Power off the PC & unplug the power cord. Open the case & pull the cmos battery. (Its about the size of a quarter). Check the 3 volt battery with a volt meter. If the battery reads less than 3 volts replace it with a new battery. If the battery checks good than fash the bios. Go to Asus web site & download the Bios - Utilities.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=A8N-VM&SLanguage=en-us
Than download the bios file.
Instruction on how to flash you're bios.

I'm betting the cmos/bios batter needs replaced.

Good Luck!

Mike is right, but what about a wrong cmos jumper setting ? Did you tried to change the cmos jumper and reset the bios on 'default value' then restart ?

I have a K8N-VM mobo. I flashed it up the other day. Initially it worked fine but when I tried to go into the bios settings it hung. I rebooted and got the Bios Checksum error screen. I shut down and...


Reboot, go into the BIOS despite the error message then lower some settings below default values. Save and restart - if you got the same error message again then the BIOS chip is no longer powered correctly, the motherboard is dead.

How can i make bios k8n-vm.rom to motherboard because i cant read from flopy this file , thank you


anaging and updating your BIOS
The following utilities allow you to manage and update the motherboard
Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) setup.
1.
ASUS EZ Flash
(Updates the BIOS using a floppy disk during POST.)
2.
ASUS AFUDOS
(Updates the BIOS in DOS mode using a bootable floppy
disk.)
3.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
(Updates the BIOS using a bootable floppy
disk or the motherboard support CD when the BIOS file fails or gets
corrupted.)
4.
ASUS Update
(Updates the BIOS in Windows
®
environment.)
Refer to the corresponding sections for details on these utilities.


prepare the motherboard support CD or the floppy disk containing the updated motherboard BIOS before using this utility.
• Make sure that you rename the original or updated BIOS file in the
floppy disk to K8NVM.ROM.

Recovering the BIOS from the support CD
To recover the BIOS from the support CD:
1. Remove any floppy disk from the floppy disk drive, then turn on the
system.
2. Insert the support CD to the optical drive.
3. The utility displays the following message and automatically checks
the floppy disk for the original or updated BIOS file.
4. Restart the system after the utility completes the updating process.
DO NOT shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS! Doing
so can cause system boot failure!

Computer boots until "press del" screen and restarts continuously


Hello
You answered your problem my friend
Its a ram problem,try to take out the corrupted ram ( slot1) and start your computer.
Generally this Stop message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory address to which it did not have permission to access. The most common cause of this error is an incorrect or corrupted pointer that references an incorrect location in memory. . When it occurs in kernel mode, it generates a STOP 0x0000000A message. If you encounter this error while upgrading to a newer version of Windows, it might be caused by a device driver, a system service, a virus scanner, or a backup tool that is incompatible with the new version.

Boot block compatible ver.024 Please do not insert disc into cd-rom or floppy drive if you want to recovery with an usb device bad bios checksum.


Bad BIOS checksum: the software on a chip on the motherboard has become corrupted.

Sometimes, you can find a "BIOS update" on the manufacturer's web-site, so that the contents of that chip can be refreshed,
i.e., by booting from a diskette (or from a USB memory-stick) that contains the replacement software.

Contact a qualified technician, and pay them for 1 hour of labour.
Or, replace the motherboard.

Bad bios checksum


You need to go to the website of whoever made the motherboard and get the BIOS flash utility and the BIOS binary file to update your BIOS. Make sure you get the right one, as using the wrong one can render your motherboard worthless. The BIOS file has to be the exact match. There is no such thing as close in this situation.
If you are not sure of the exact make and model, get te free Belarc Advisor from http://www.belarc.com
The BIOS chip holds information about your motherboard hardware. It is reprogrammable. It uses what is known electrically erasable read only memory. This is also called Flash memory. Reprogramming is called flashing. When you flash the BIOS, all data is erased, then the new data is written. The flash utility will most likely allow you to save the old contents, but you might have an extremely tough time recovering from an improper flash. You'll also probably need a couple of floppy disks, one of which may have to be bootable. If you need a bootable floppy disk, you can get an image file from http://www.bootdisk.com.
