cmos checksum error

By jpirc ·
I keep recieving this error every morning this user starts his machine. If you press F1 you can continue, or delete to enter cmos.
I went into the cmos, re-auto-detected the Hard drive and everything was fine. I even tried it 3-4 time in a row torestart and had no errors, but every morning I keep fixing this same problem.

cmos checksum error

by tysonmathews In reply to cmos checksum error

Before swapping out the battery go into your CMOS and check the date in your CMOS chances are it is set to far back. I had this error 3 or so weeks ago on a box that I placed a new battery in and had this. Hmm. I thought it wont load. So I went into the CMOS and saw the time and brought it up 10 years to current date and then it magically worked and no cmos check sum error.

First, it probably is the CMOS battery. Go into your case and check to see if it is integrated. (Don't forget to use your wrist-strap to avoid ESD.) If it is not integrated, you need to;
1. Take it out
2. Go to your nearest comp. store or Radio Shack
3. There are different varieties of batteries
They have model numbers printed on them.
4. Install new battery
5. Ready to go
As for why it keeps your setings after you autodetect and shut-off and on again. It is keeping a small charge in itself and you are not giving it enough time to discharge. That is why in the morning, you have to go through the same routine all over again. It has had all night to discharge.
Good Luck!!!

There is I think a problem with your BIOS settings check them or just remove the battery and put it in again and now the settings will be reset now again set them right. Reboot and you will not get this problem.
