Why do I get a cmos/gpnv checksum bad error when booting my computer?

by on January 6, 2011

Q: When I turn on my hpd230mt I get an error “cmos/gpnv checksum bad.”

I get it everytime Ii restart my pc and my time sort of stands still.

Ii turn it off at 12 noon and when I resume my session after an hour I get the same time.

I tried updating the bios and changing jumper settings but no luck.

    If you can get into the BIOS at all, usually F1, try restoring defaults.

    Since you’ve already tried the things you have, you might be out of luck with the motherboard.

    This thread has some different ideas, but I’m not personally comfortable suggesting many of them. Try at your own risk: http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/33632/
