    Hi all,

    I have the same problem with Asus A8N-E mobo. The comp restarted, then a black screen appeared and i couldn't access bios either.
    If i take out the bios battery and connect it again the comp starts.
    But i can't do that anytime when I start the comp - probably in a week or 2 will die for good.

    I've tried the solution proposed in this topic (clear cmos), but it didnt work for me :(

    If anyone has a better idea, please share it with us.

    Thanks

This is a common problem wirth asus motherboards the only thing is to re set the bios to do this romove the power plug from pc wait for 30 second - 1 minute for the static to be removed from board then find the bios battery and remove this then find the jumper that says clr cymos or bios then place the jumper on the opposite two then press on button then place jumper bace to orraginal possition then place the power cord back to tower psu then reboot pc then all will be fine replace battery in the holder enter bios then hunt for all relevent thing like first boot should be hdd then cdrom then floppy drive this is only if you have got one.

to set-up bios properly please e-mail me with your motherboard details and I'll e-mail you back with a list of things you should do to get the bios back to good working order.

I would say you have a failed memory (RAM) module. Probably a module in one of the secondary slots since the computer is able to POST and will attempt to boot.

Bios rom checksum error


Hai, That message dosn't sound like an error. i suspect the ram is faulty/incompatible and the pc won't boot because of it. 
Change back to the old ram and reset the bios (jumber on the motherboard)

Award BootBlock V1.0


Hi.

The BIOS (Basic Input output System) on your motherboard has become corrupted and the computer can't boot normally. The Bootblock is a "failsafe" device that allows the computer to boot far enough to use the floppy disk drive, even though the rest of the BIOS code is scrambled.

How do you think this happened? The most common cause is people trying to "update" the BIOS and messing up the flashing process. Sometimes some particularly nasty viruses can wreck the BIOS code as well.

Now this might be fixable. You will need to download a known good BIOS from Iwill's website and the Award BIOS flashing utility. Then you will need a bootable floppy disk (DOS) to start the computer. You will have to copy the BIOS .BIN file over to the floppy beforehand and the flashing utility. There will be information on the Iwill website on how to flash the BIOS.

Here is a full detailed webpage on how to go about all this:

http://pages.sbcglobal.net/jefn/bootblock.html

I just did a quick Google search using the motherboard details you provided and came up blank ....

If you can't get the BIOS flashed and usable again then I'm afraid it's time for a new motherboard/computer.

You can try flashing/updating the BIOS if nothing works.

Bootblock


Hi,

This messages indicates that the BIOS could not be located and loaded up. Normally this happens when the BIOS is corrupted. The corrective action required is to re-flash the BIOS using a DOS bootable diskette in the 1.44 FDD. Aside from the BIOS file, a flashing software is also needed. Pls start here.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
