Hello,I got this problem before "CHECKSUM error, defaults loaded" appearing evrytime i boot my Windows XP. OTHER SYMPTOMS: the clock is always go on reset and I need to manually change it every now and then. So, as advised here, in this forum, I changed my battery (Lithium 2032, 3v) with new one.
BUT......the problem persists...i can still see that error message during boot...what do you think is the problem?? I noticed that this problems only occured after many updates of this window... PLEASE HELP ME!! =(
What I did actually is after replacing the battery (place it in its socket at the motherboard) than I just reboot it and actually did nothing after that...do i have to reset the BIOS?? Is it safe for my data??? Will it erase all my data stored in the hard drive???
