    When I turn on the computer I have:
    CMOS Checksum Bad

    Press F2 to Run SETUP
    Press F1 to load default values and
    continue

    So when i chose: F2

    there is a black screen: "Wait..."


    so i'm wating...(2 Hours) But nothing happens.

    I took out the battery for the BIOS
    and after 1 hour i put it back.
    This action did not change anything.

    when im pressing "del" nothing happens.
    Each option gets stuck:confused:

    i just connected my wacom bamboo pen to the computer, and after the restart my computer offers options.

    i can do something to fix it?

    Most motherboards have a pin to reset the bios. Just taking out the battery may not do it. Do you see a jumper on the motherboard, designed for that purpose?

    Could the motherboard be old enough to need a new battery?
