System halt how do i start command prompt mouse & keyboard do nothing More about : bios checksum error system halted anort3 October 25, 2010 4:54:17 AM That is an old board that may have a dead battery or may be dead altogether. Try clear CMOS jumper or just remove the battery for 5 seconds. Sounds like a corrupted BIOS so a clear CMOS may help. If that does not fix it it may be a brick. m 0 l das_stig October 25, 2010 4:02:11 PM Corrupt bios, replace battery with power cable removed and when it boots up, go into bios and choose safe/default settings, save and exit. If it works, now changes your bios settings to the optimal settings for your config. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
