Entering Bios Problem

  1. Hi Guys,

    I have a boot up problem with a packard bell Easynote E2560 which i hope someone might know the answer to,

    When i switch the computer on it hangs at the 'Purple' Boot Screen, it will stay there all day if i dont turn it off.

    If I press F2 to enter the bios setup I get a message saying
    'Warning Cmos Checksum Invalid-Run SCU Entering setup please wait'
    and here it just waits nothing happens?

    A friend suggested the cmos battery may be flat, so I have changed it but the problem still persists.

    If anybody does have any advice I would be most greatfull.

    Thanks
