Computer Freezez+Cmos Checksum Error
Posted on 2003-02-22
My computer is freezing after loading up. Not always the same time but shortly after it loads it freezes. I have run Norten Utilites and Scandisk everything comes back normal, nothing seems to be wrong. Still it freezes. It has been going on for about three weeks not every time, now though it just freezes all the time. Have been using MSCONFIG and selective startup. Loaded the System file and freezes once loaded. Uncheck that loaded win file, then static VxD's and startup group. Seems to work fine but after awhile it will freeze but a lot better then the past three days. Should mention it did not freeze with just win and static VxD's or maybe just not long enough. With startup group or eviorment variables it will freeze eventually. I notice on some of the reboots I get the CMOS checksum error- load defaults. I enter bios setup and everything except time seems to be working at there correct value. Even loaded optimal settings and default settings and finishing loading and it would freeze. Untill I load windows without the sytem file then I had no chance of keeping my computer running. I made it thru this post and my computer is still running. Any help is appreciated. I feel I.m preety knowledgeable but can not figure it out. Before I start going thru the System File one check at a time till I figure it out. anyone have a quick answer.
