I just recently updated my BIOS for ECS-G33T-M2 motherboard. I got the update from the ECS website itself but now everytime I restart my computer, it tells me Bad CMOS, CHECKSUM error, press F1. I go and fix the time and date, afterwards I save it and exit, computer resets, same dilema, Bad CMOS, CHECKSUM error, try it again, same thing. The only way for me to get to windows is if i exit without saving, but then my time is always off, and its fairly annoying to constantly keep fixing it. Help anyone?

Perhaps it is just a coincidental failure but try changing your CMOS battery. A dead battery won't hold any time or other settings and will give a checksum error message.

I think the worst just happened, I re flashed the BIOS, now i cant get to POST, all i hear is one beep, then a second later 5 beeps. So its kinda like beep..Beep beep beep beep beep. I checked the beep code list and dont know what that means.

pdykman is right,
Did you save your previous bios to a floppy ?
The update should suggest this.If so,
Use it.
That only leaves setting it to defaults.
Read your Motherboard manual.
