Boot fail bios checksum error after update the bios

Hi,

 The error message "BIOS Checksum Error" means that the update loaded corrupt files. Did you not  clear the CMOS before updating your BIOS? That can easily cause the problem facing you. You are still in luck. 

 

     *** This is from the online HP info for your PC model***

If a 251 or CMOS Checksum error occurs after installing the BIOS update, perform the following steps:
  1. Restart the PC and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
  2. Press the F5 key to load the default BIOS configuration.
  3. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
  4. Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit.
  5. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
When the BIOS update is complete, the new BIOS revision number is updated on the Main BIOS screen.
 
If this does not work there are more detailed insteps that I can give you to follow to make you a BIOS update geek.:). Let us know how this first step goes.
 
Regards,
Eric

Hi Louis,

Ok. Take a read of this Hp webpage on the subject. What you are going to have to do is repeatedly press F10 or F! as your PC starts up. Please keep us advised  on your progress.

 

Regards,

Eric

Boot fail bios checksum error after update the bios

Hi louis79,

 

This HP support document should help:

http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01368145

 

One other thing to try, removing the CMOS battery for 30minutes should reset the BIOS back to it's default settings. If the CMOS isn't too fected this should work since the CMOS is what controls your BIOS. Removing the battery will drain the power to the CMOS allowing it to "forget" it's current settings and return to defalut. The document linked to above also has a link in it for steps on replacing the CMOS battery to help with this.

 

If this doesn't work, you may need to send the PC in for service.

 

Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

Boot fail bios checksum error after update the bios

Hi,

Removing the battery and clearing the CMO are indeed the next steps. Be aware that near the CMOS battery you will find either a small button(usually green in color) or three pins with a jumper that is on two of the three pins.The image in the link shows generically what you are looking for. Sometimes there are letters that state "CMOS Clear" and sometimes not. 

 

Unplug the power cord and open the case. First carefully remove the CMOS battery. Place the jumper on the middle pin and the pin that was previously not covered. Leave it this way for 10 seconds or more. Place the jumper back to its original position and reinstall the battery. Power up your PC and at that time start tapping the F10 key. If your can now get into the BIOS --> load default settings and set the time and date as well.

 

Regards,

Eric

Boot fail bios checksum error after update the bios

Hi friends, thanks to all for help me, unfortunately im still able to fix that :(, i try removing the battery and clear the cmos but nothing happens, i attach an image of my monitor, so you can see that do not show any option like F1 or F10 or F2, only that information are displayed when i turn on the computer

 

 

the motherboard is a Asus M2N68-LA but on the asus site dont exist that model, i think is a special model for compaq computers, i think that the only way to fix that is to use the Afudos BIOS update tool, to flash the bios again but this time with the default bios rom form compaq :s, anyone have the default bios .rom file for the Compaq SR5027CL????????.

 

why compaq put that bios update if will crash your computer????? 😞

Boot fail bios checksum error after update the bios

Hi Louis,

I see that the options for F1/ F10 and F5 are not shown. I do recommend that you try the AFUDos BIOS floppy another time. I researchedthe specs on your motherboard and you are correct. The BIOS for the M2N68 series motherboards on ASUS' sitewill not help as they have a different chipset, The ASUS motherboards use the Nvidia 630a chipset instead of the Nvidia 430 chipset on the motherboard that Hp used for your motherboard.

 

Here is a link to the solution to the same problem on the motherboard that you have. I have downloaded HP's SoftPaq Download manager to see if I can locate the SoftPaq that you need with the original 513.bin BIOS file. I will let you know how it goes. If I am successful I will explain how I got the file so you can do the same. You will need WinRAR to extract the BIOS file once we find the sucker. The 514.bin BIOS file is the one that caused your problem. You will also need Awdflash.exe ver 8.59E. The link to that is located in the forumthat I hyperlinked to above.

 

Update:

I found the proper SoftPaq file in the HP website. You  will need to precisely follow the instructions given in the first hyperlink above. It can be done!

 

Regards,

Eric
