Computer won't load bad checksum can't get into bios even

January 3, 2013 at 17:51:46
Specs: Windows XP

I am working on an HP mini 110, when I load the computer all I get is a quick bad checksum screen and then back to the screen that tells you to press a button to get into the bios, but I can't do that even. When I press any button nothing happens it's just stuck. I checked the ram, hard drive, cmos battery, and even replaced the motherboard, but still I get the same screen. I'm all out of ideas and need help.

Did u replace CMOS battery?
Also try the hard reset, this is done by disconnecting the AC power and battery then hold the power button for 15 seconds.

Are you using a USB keyboard?

If so try temporary replcing it with a PS/2 key board. To get into the BIOS you need a fully functioning keyboard.

Did this just suddenly start happening or was it after you did something?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is it possible you installed the CMOS battery up side down?

mmm Upside down battery does sound quite possible here...?

Equally a stuck key, or duff/faulty keyboard...; as it appears that everything else has been replaced?

How much money and time have you wasted on this less than $300 dollar netbook? I can't imagine it's really worth that much effort.

That device is almost 3 years old, for a couple of hundred, you could purchase something brand new and way better specs. Not trying to be rude but on a cheap device like that it just isn't worth the time, money, and frustration spent try ing to resurrect it. It's a disposable laptop.

Also somewhat agree with THX in post 10...
