First thing to try is to replace the cmos battery. it'll cost you like 2 bucks and you can get them anywhere, walmart, radio shack, best buy whatever is close to you. its small round and flat and silver, about the size of a nickel, basically a watch battery. Both my computers use CR2032, look to see which one you need though. After you replace it go into your BIOS and make the harddrive first in the boot order. see if that helps.

Were you trying to flash the BIOS?

If you don't know then that's a good enough answer for me :thumbsup: It may come to that for you eventually, but hopefully its something simple. Is the error BIOS ROM CHECKSUM ERROR?
