How to recover from "CMOS checksum error..loading defaults"
Posted on 2002-03-09
I have an AWARD MODULAR BIOS v.6.00 PG
Bios 3.04 Relaase 2000/09/21 S
When booting, I get "CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR ...Loading Defaults".
Well, defaults means that it boots in C, A order so I can't boot from a floppy.
I checked the batter which seemed dead and replaced it.
Still the same error when attempting to boot.
I can get it into SAFE MODE and Windows seems fine,
but if I try to boot in normal mode, it gets to the Windows startup screen and stops.
What can I do?
