Is could need a new cmos battery. Look on your motherboard for a battery the size of a quarter. There ease to replace but be careful that you don't bend the metal clip.

The CMOS checksum error occurs when the CMOS battery is worn out and the CMOS data gets corrupted. Replace the CMOS battery, this battery most likely a CR2032 lithium coin size button battery - check to make sure before you purchase.

I have a Dell 6000m laptop and the message says can't find the hard drive. I don't have the password for hardware so can't get in to try and fix it. Any suggestions how to solve this would be appreceiated.


Clearing the CMOS (BIOS setting storage) will clear the password.
Go to the Dell website and look for directions on how to clear the CMOS,
or just removing the button cell batter for a few minutes, with the computer unplugged, should also clear it.

Hi,
Always remember that when you add new hardware like a processor or faster memory you have to clear the CMOS to reset the BIOS to defaults so it will recognize the new hardware. Sometimes you have to do this with hard drives particularly SATA drives.

On the motherboard, near the motherboard battery look for a small coloured plastic jumper. If your motherboard has one it will be marked as CLR_CMOS. Just move the jumper to the other position and press the on/off button. That will clear the CMOS.

If you don't have a CMOS jumper then remove the power cord from the back of the computer and take out the BIOS battery for half an hour or so. Replace the battery and plug in power. Turn the computer on and hopefully the the computer will boot and you will see a splash/post screen. If you do remember to set the correct date and time in the BIOS utility.

If your still not getting a post screen go back and check the processor is compatible with the motherboard. Check that the processor is locked in the socket properly and also check to make sure your system memory is seated properly.

Post back if need anymore advice.

Reagrds.

Also make sure that you have a stick of RAM in to allow the motherboard to pull up information.

CPU is seated correctly.

If that fails, then reset the CMOS by pulling the jumper off (pins 1-2) and switching them around (pins 2-3).

Hopefully that will get you some video.
