Re: 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.

Error BIOS ROM CHECKSUM - SYSTEM HALTED. CauseBad Hardware SolutionUnfortunately this indicates that your computer BIOS ROM chip or Motherboard is physically bad. It is recommended that you contact your computer manufacturer or take the computer into local service center for repair. If you wish to repair this issue yourself the motherbard will need to be replaced. This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.
The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is probably faulty. It could also be another component on the motherboard.
You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values hopefully against a recent
If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup. If you don't know the settings the should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date. Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work. This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.
During the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOSyou can load failsafe defaultsor load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart You will also need to set the time and date
In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date. Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date. hope this helps you
This error comes when there is low cmos voltage so motherboard flash memory forgot the bios settings. For that open cpu and then pull cmos cell from mother board buy new cmos cell and replaced it. Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios and set time and date and boot option in bios then save settings. Then it works again if it not works then you need to update firmware for your bios . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
to be honest if you have tried to re-flash your bios, and it did not work you still either have hte wrong version or the disc drive your using to flash it from is faulty. try another floppy drive/disc and try again.
if that dont work. to be honest it's not worth getting it repaired just go out and spend £30-40 on a new mobo.
sorry i'm not more helpfull but i dont believe it's worth spending that much time and effort on an old system like that with this kind of problem.
good luck to you. let me know how you get on ok.
Open Your system and there is a Battery which looks like a Coin. that is CMOS Battery (CR2032) Change that battery and then Reboot your system and try go to BIOS menu with DEL , F11 , F1 or F2. Either of these Buttons can Work.
Unplug mains from wall
find CMOS reset jumper (usually 3 pins with a jumper/link on two of them near the button cell battery on the mainboard).
Move jumper to other position, then move jumper back again to original position.
fit lid and connect mains supply and switch on.
If you can go into the BIOS, set Defaults and set the date and time, Then try to boot.
If it has been of for a while and time is wrong when ou next boot it, replace the button cell battery on the mainboard.
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.
