Jody did you resolve your checksum error message. I have the same problem with a tyan trinity 400 motherboard and after changing cmos batteries and clearing cmos I still cant get into cmos did you have any luck Ken : I have contacted Abit Support for my motherboard (VH6-II) and Abit says that I need to properly discharge the CMOS in order to have the "Defaults loaded" message after the BIOS Checksum Error message appear. At that point they say I can get into the BIOS to change the settings and be good to go.

: I will try this when I get home from work. If it works, there will be a post on here tonight. 8-)

: Jody

: p.s. - Abit says the proper proceedure for clearing the CMOS is:

: 1. Unplug your system from the outlet/power strip.
: 2. Move the CMOS discharge jumper to the "Discharge" position.
: 3. Wait at least 10 seconds.
: 4. Move the CMOS discharge jumper back to the "Normal" position.
: 5. Plug the system back in and power it up.

: : I looked at a previous thread farther down that said you could flash the BIOS. I too have this problem and have tried to flash the BIOS with the same error. Are we just using the wrong switches? 8-(

: : Any help we could get would be greatly appreciated!
