Not your normal CMOS checksum error

  1. I have an Epox mobo 4GEA+.

    I am getting an CMOS checksum error - defaults loaded error.

    I think I know how it happened - my little angel turned off the PC without shutting down XP.

    When I turn on the PC I get a single beep and then the error. I cannot press F1, or any key, it doesn't seem to recognize the keyboard. I am locked up at the error screen.

    I doubt its the CMOS battery because of the suddeness of the error.

    Will clearing the CMOS activate the keyboard? Better solutions?

    You can always try that.

    If it doesn't help, then do a Repair Install.
