My pals Advent will not boot. On power up it just continually beeps and the screen shows the following:
BIOS ROM checksum error
Detecting Floppy Drive A Media....
Drive A Error. System Halt
I have disconnected the A (floppy) drive but this makes no difference. I cannot get into the BIOS at boot.
Probably the CMOS battery. Normally, you can get into BIOS to reset the time/date and it boots OK. However, as you can't access BIOS, I'm not sure how to proceed next.
P.S. - for Advents, I think it's the DEL key when the logo appears for BIOS, not the functions keys as on a lot of machines.
Thanks on the limit but I'm not even getting the Advent logo. I know that it is the Del button to access the BIOS.
Hmm - are you getting anything on screen before that error message?
No, that's it.
Then, sorry, that's me stumped!
Have you tried a new cmos battery?
ICF - see my post at 2:51!
Will try this evening and let know.
Sorry onthelimit1 wasn't trying to steal your glory but Legslip had not responded to your possible solution of changing the Cmos battery
