    Howdy all.

    I was having a hard time rebooting a computer the other day. Everytime I tried to power up, I got a series of beeps and the monitor was not displaying anything, it didn't even connect to the PC. I decided to reset my CMOS, seeing if this would help, and it was able to boot up, and I was able to see the display on the monitor.

    The problem is, everytime I bootup, it states that there's a checksum error. I've gone in and taken a look around, and reset the clock. I'll be able to restart, but won't get a display and the num lock light stays on, even after powering down, at which time I have to unplug the power, then plug it back in.

    I then reset the CMOS again, and have replaced the CMOS battery from a working computer and on the initial bootup I'll get the Checksum error. If I just bootup with the factory defaults, it boots up fine and goes into window. It's restarting the computer or powering down and back up again that's a problem.

    Any suggestions?
