Can not boot up computer.
When I try to start up my computer, I get a message that reads "CMOS/GPNV Checksum Bad" on start up
I can not do anything, can not boot from floppy, can not boot from cd room, can't run anything other than bios and even when I change setting in bios, the bios does not save the settings when I click save and exit. I've had this problem for months on my other computer and I'm trying again tonight to fix it. I'm at a point with internet searching where the only thing I have not tried to resolve this specific problem is...
"Change Flash Recovery jumper to the recovery mode position. " This is the first step to a series of steps that might solve my problem. I have no idea what a flash recovery jumper looks like, and I don't know what the recovery position is. This sounds like wires in the computer to me... anyone know what this means?
The funny thing is, when I searched for this exact string on google "CMOS/GPNV Checksum Bad.", the third or forth result was an Intel support page, with the title of my exact motherboard, saying "Intel® Desktop Board D850GB - Get a "CMOS/GPNV Checksum Bad "
So I see how I’m predisposed to have this issue, but the page didn't help at all, and it was as if it’s underlying message was: we f--ed up making this motherboard, so we’re trying to hide that fact. This problem is not a battery problem, it's not new hardware I installed, I can not save changes in the bios. So what does this mean: Change Flash Recovery jumper to the recovery mode position.
