Ok, recently i bought 1 gig of RAM and after i installed it and started my CPU i got this message at the boot-up screen: CMOS checksum error - Defaults Loaded
Warning! CPU has been changed, or CPU ratio changed fail.
Please Re-enter CPU settings in the CMOS setup and remember to Save before quit.

thats all it said, so i went into setup and reset the date/time. after that i saved and restarted, it booted up just fine. so am i ok now? or is something still wrong with my system?

any help would be great. Thanks.

No, you're computer should be fine. I 've had this happen a few times myself, and it nevermessed up my system.

Just keeping an eye on it can't hurt though:)

You don't say in your post, but I am guessing that 1 GB of RAM is more than you had before? If so I think the BIOS is just telling you that it detected a change in your system.

You could always go to:

Start > right click on My Computer > Properties

and see how much RAM is recognized by Windows. It should be close to 1 GB but may not be exact, as Windows counts RAM differently than RAM manufacturers do. If it is some different number then go into the BIOS and see if all the RAM is recognized. If it is not, we must then figure out why not.
