Hi, if you're system does not keep the correct date & time it is possible the cmos/bios battery on the motherboard has reached it's max life span. The bios battery recharges only when the system is on. In many cases even when the system is on & you correct the date & time & notice the time is off the battery needs replaced.

Cmos checksum error-defaults loaded


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.

Make sure the battery has plenty charge or remove the battery for a while, about 5 minutes to see if that restores it some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

You could check the site for the machine vendor to see if there is a reset jumper.

If that doesn't work then you will need to refresh the BIOS


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 the Delete or 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.
.

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.

Press F10 Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work
hope this helps

Cmos battery error failure


The CMOS (BIOS) battery keeps the computer'a comfiguration and the Date & Time settings in the CMOS (BIOS) chip in its memory. When the CMOS (BIOS) battery is flat these configuration information is lost.
Replace the CMOS battery with a new one, in most cases this battery is a lithium 3 volt battery type CR2032 and it is coin size battery 18mm in dia.(check it to make sure the type of battery is installed on your motherboard).
When you replace this battery then go into the BIOS and set the Date & Time etc.

I have an intel g41 motherboard....every time i switchon d pc...it shows check cmos error and the time and date are set to defaluts


This error occurs when the BIOS battery is flat. Replace the BIOS battery, most motherboards use a lithium battery type CR2032, this is a coin size battery. Check the BIOS battery type used on your motherboard before you purchase the battery.
After replacing the battery go to the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time etc. and you will not have this CMOS error.

Bios/Cimos settings has errors

Date problem


When the Date and time error message comes up during booting up the computer, it means the BIOS requires configuration.
If this occurs every time you boot up your computer after changing the Date and Time then, this is caused by a flat BIOS battery.
The BIOS battery is ususlly a 20mm dia. 3 volt lithium battery type CR2030
Replace the BIOS battery and then configure the Date and Time and you won't get this error again.

Hello my ibm thinkpad 600E will not come up. it says error 00161 and 00163. what do i need to do?


Do you know how to get into bios/setup?
Start with the machine OFF. HOLD DOWN and CONTINUE TO HOLD THE "F1" key. WHILE STILL HOLDING "F1", turn the power on, and CONTINUE TO HOLD "F1" This will get you into the bios "setup." You should check the date, bootup order, etc, and reset. I would check the "wire" you think you reconnected---you may just not have actually reconnected it.

backup battery = CMOS battery
According to the error codes, you have a dead backup battery and the time is not set. Error: 161
(Dead battery.) 1. Go to Checking the Backup Battery
2. Backup battery.
3. System board.
Error: 163
(Time and date were not set.) 1. Set time and date.
2. System board.
