    I think you have done all the typical procedures to get around it, and you probably have a bad motherboard - it happens.

    I am having a similar problem. I get the "bad bios checksum" sometimes. Other times I can get into the BIOS, but the computer freezes after a couple minutes. Sometimes I get no video. I have been able to get into Windows XP, but it freezes after a few minutes. I have an ASUS P4C800 motherboard. My guess is it's a bad motherboard also. I tried putting the CD in when it tries to do the  BIOS Recovery but it freezes right after it detects the cd-rom.
