When I corrupted my bios (for unknown reason) I was also getting a "cmos checksum error".

 

Hot swap with a working bios chip (not done by me) thought Mr. Bios how to behave.

 

I bet you already know that there is really very little to do when you corrupted your bios other than long cmos clear (perhaps with insert method after 24 hrs).

 

You can ask Tmod to send you a bios chip (it might take some time overseas). I got my spare one (learned my lesson) for $15 - didnt try but I am sure it will work (if needed).

 

Good luck

Yes you were lucky, Sometimes it pays to have a floppy drive still sitting around.

 

Glad to hear you got it going.

Where can I buy a spare BIOS chip for the Lanparty NF4 Ultra-D? I don't immediately need one, but I'd like to have one just incase. I screwed up my old Abit NF7-S v2 way back in the day and was able to find and purchase a BIOS chip and hot flash and got it working and all, and when I went back to that same website, they were no longer around =/
