Even though I inserted another battery (from a PC with no such trouble) I get a message indicating checksum error (BIOS) and battery fail.

How can I manually change the checksum in the BIOS? I did a BIOS flash which reported a checksum that I might insert somewhere in the BIOS? I do have a DMI config utility for this mb but don't know if or how I might be able to change the checksum.

regards, Ruud

What is your motherboard?

Look on the actual board to find the FCC ID, report it back here.
