    Hello,

    Recently my checksum became corrupted. when I start my IBM Thinkpad T20 laptop it doesn't even get to the bootup stage. It hangs the with error: " 0175 : Bad CRC1, Stop POST task" .

    Does anyone know how to reset the CRC Checksum on the mainboard?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Fausto

    Checksum errors come up 99.99% of the time when the CMOS battery is going bad. Try getting it replaced.

    Hi fausto!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news. The error your receiving is a system board error. It seems that the motherboard went south on you. The corrective action ibm states is to replace the motherboard.

    sorry for the bad news.....
    Good luck
