Checksum does not match the computed checksum

Hello
I have just had a new CD drive installed oon my PC that is running XP. When I got it home and switched it on i got 'checksum does not match the computer checksum'! The guy in the shop said it was now a failed Hard Drive and I need a new one! Is this a load of rubbish or could he be telling the truth? The computer has always been fine until he installed this new cd drive?? Please help before I get ripped off by this person!!

  1. It would help if you gave the FULL message, it could be a CMOS Checksum failure (which is easily fixed); if it was the HardDrive I'd expect it to be a CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) failure.
