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?
