Question about ASUS A8N-VM Motherboard
Bad Bios Checksum and repeatedly asks for floppy or CD for recovery when inserted It reads, does programming and asks for restart.and again the same problem
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.
Than download the bios file.
Instruction on how to flash you're bios.
I'm betting the cmos/bios batter needs replaced.

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 ?
