I purchased a new motherboard for my 17-g133cl and put it in. It is the correct model. I verified with the store I purchased from and physical inspection.
I got a CMOS 502 error. I took the battery out for about 5 minutes that did not help.
The error message reads
"The CMOS checksum is invalid. The CMOS will reset to the default configuration and will be rebooted. Please check your bios options to see if they change."
I let it reboot and it goes into a loop between automatic repair and diagnosing your PC.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

@MollyDee I suggest you try with an alternate device, if the usb is crashing while its being used on the device with the issue and the bios isn't being recovered, this could determine a hardware malfunction and I suggest you talk to HP support and discuss your options,
follow the below steps to get started:
1) Click on this link - http://www.hp.com/contacthp/
2) Click on Sign-in or select the product using the below step:
3) Enter the serial of your device.
4) Select the country from the drop-down.
5) Click on "Show Options".
Fill the web-form, to populate a case number and phone number for yourself!
Also, if you are having trouble navigating through the above options, it's most likely because the device is out of warranty, if yes? please send me a private message with the region you are contacting us from,
