On booting up my computer just recently Ihave been getting the message"checksum error,defaults loaded,press f1 to continue"which I do,it does not seem to affect anything. Any ideas on how to get things booting up correctly? Cymmer.
it could be the battery that needs replacing or there is a value in the bios that needs changing
either way you will need to reset your bios settings as the battery stores what settings the bios has, i.e if the battery runs low and starts to fail, this error will come up as it cannot tell the bios what settings it had!
if it is not the battery then like i said a setting may need to be changed, the best way to do this, is to boot into the bios and note down the settings you have in there and then load defualt values,or better still reset the cmos jumper which is probably on the motherboard refer to your motherboard manual
