"cmos checksum error - default loaded"

- i replace cmos baterry with a new one
- plug out all the cable and plug in back
- use search and destroy
- use avg antivirus

Check your RAM/RAM timings. Setting the RAM timings too aggressively will give you that error. I'm not familiar with that particular board, but sometimes they have slow/normal/fast or turbo settings. If it has a setting like that, set it to the slowest setting, and back off the timings to what SPD has it at or even slower. If you can get it up and running without the checksum error, you can try more aggressive settings from there.

Ummm, just a random thought - but have you ever gone into bios and done an F10 Save settings? If the new settings have never been saved over the invalid ones, then you'll get that every time you bootu p.

So, are you saying that when you save the bios, turn it off, turn it back on, the information doesn't save?
