That motherboard could be 15 years old. There is a battery in the motherboard that keeps the bios memory stable. Change the battery and see if that solves the issue. IF you did not flash the BIOS then it is hard to fathom a checksum error. If that does not work then you should get an error that you can proceed past, IF that is not the case you have to replace the motherboard.

Turn the computer off
now turn on and hold down the delete key until the bios screen appears
in the boot tab select first boot as the cd disk, install the cd for win nt in that drive
close down the cd and then restart and it will boot from the cd
BY reformatting the hard drive win nt you have wiped the win nt operating system from the hard drive

Asus p4v8x-x bad bios checksum checking for floopy floppy not found checking for cd-rom start reading P4V8X-X.ROM could not find P4V8X-X.ROM


Hi, you can download the bios file here:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P4V8X-X&p=1&s=15

Please select your windows version.
Select bios and click on global for download.
You have to unzip the file before you install it.

You might have to change the cmos battery out with
a new one:

ghost2233_59.jpg So the bios can remember its settings.
Thats why you get a bad bios checksum.
A reminder flashing the bios with a wrong one WILL destroy the mainboard.

How to compactible graphic kart


Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

Your computer mainboard supports Graphics Cards from both Nvidia and ATI Radeon.

You may use a standard PCI Graphics Card, that is the white slot.
OR
You may use a AGPX4 Graphics Card, that is the single brown slot.

Note: AGPX4 is faster than Standard PCI so use AGPX4 if you can.

So basically you need to install any AGPX4 Graphics Card in your computer.
Check the specifications when purchasing the graphics card to ensure that it is indeed an AGPX4 Graphics card.

Thanking you

Checksum error


Hi Oliver, the most common error related to the message,
(Bios Rom Checksum Error). Someone has left a floppy disk in the floppy drive. Once the floppy disk has been removed press the reset button on the PC, your windows will start normally. Next place to look is in your bios.
Open your manual to page 27.
Enter your bios & go to the title Advanced BIOS Features. Check First, Second & Third boot devices they should be as follows. Floppy disk drive, CD-ROM drive & primary hard disk drive. If both of the above are ok than try clearing the cmos/bios by resetting the cmos jumper (JP1) location on page 5. Descriptions of page five on page 6. CMOS settings on page 9.
When your system restarts re-enter your cmos & reset up your bios settings. Lastly if none of the above has fixed the error message, than remove the cmos battery & check its voltage. It should maintain 3volts. If yours' is lower than 3volts replace the cmos battery. There is one other possible fix. It’s an option not given lightly. Flashing a cmos/bios is not recommended unless all other options have failed.

Bios ROM checksum error


The rom you used to flash the bios may not have been the correct one for your mobo, or it did not complete the flash entirely. Try using the usb a drive to flash it again and/or revert back to an older version.

Biostar P4M900-M7 SE BIOS ROM Checksum Error


The bios upgrade procedure stopped at half , leaving the bios corrupted. The computer now cannot do a regular boot procedure, this is the reason why it cannot recognise some device. If you are still able to boot from floppy, you can restart bios upgrade procedure from floppy. Just download floppy version upgrade and re do setup. Even if you do not find latest bios version, just download a floppy upgrade that is working, so that you can restart your machine regularly , and then do the update to latest version.
If you are not able to complete the bios setup, the only way to fix your motherboard will be flashing the CMOS chipset with a chip programmer device that will reinstall bios straight into cmos chipset.
You can have this done at the service point, in this case consider also replacing your motherboard.
