I recently changed my graphics card. While the card was out, I decided to change out the original year 2007 battery. I had no CMOS problems before, but I thought that since the battery was over 5 years old and buried under the graphics card I should change it. Now I get a checksum error telling me that it will reset to the defaults. Is there a driver that I should have installed? The error does not occur at every restart, only when I unplug the computer. I checked the voltage of the new battery and it is good (3.2 volts). There are no problems at all with my computer, unless I unplug it.
