    (Out of the box, arrived yesterday)

    video card: Nvidia 7900 GS (new 4 months ago)

    PSU: Apevia 680w Beast Power (new 4 months ago)

    Ram: 4gigs G.SKILL (4 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800
    (out of the box, arrived yesterday)

    HDD: WD Raptor (2 years old)

    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Windsor 2.4GHz Socket AM2 89W Dual-Core

    (Out of the box, arrived yesterday)

    Bios: Award Bios (Old mobo, and new)


    Ok so I upgraded my computer with a new mobo, cpu, and ram and now im getting some weird errors. When I start the computer, the "AI" mobo logo screen comes up. After it passes that screen it comes to the bios screen where it checks everything. at this screen, it will detect my sata hard drive but not the IDE hard drive, and then it gives me an error "Checksum Error - Defaults Loaded" and it says Press F1 to continue. so I do and then it comes to the next screen which says "" "Detect Drives Done - No Any Drive Found". It wont pass this screen. Is there something in the bios I set wrong? or maybe its a dead hard drive? I have no idea what to do at this point. Any suggestions?

    Try shorting out the CMOS jumper. If that doesn't work, try replacing the battery.
