Okay, I need a quick response to this one if possible, if anyone has any ideas.
I have an Asus A8V motherboard that displays a cmos checksum error. The system will not go to post and I cannot access the BIOS.
This presents an interesting set of problems. I think I need to flash the BIOS but I cannot get access to it. I have tried the following:
I have unplugged all devices from the mb except for one stick of ram and the proc.
I have removed the cmos battery and tested it with a vom. It tests out at 3.06vdc.
I have unplugged the power supply and removed the battery for over an hour, completed the CMOS reset procedure and reinserted the battery, plugged the power supply back in.
Still, I cannot get the system to post or even to get to a point where I can start into DOS so that I can flash the bios. I really need to restore this system to full functionality in about 12 hours.
Does anyone have any ideas on this one? I would really appreciate it. Question worth max points and more points possible for quick, complete and detailed solution.
