What Does This Mean?

Recommended Posts

new guy here(not with computers, the forums!)

what does bios rom checksum error mean? i got this message after MSI live update said my drivers were out of date and asked if i wanted to update. i clicked on yes and this error message is what was on my screen after reboot. connot get into bios, cannot reset cmos,no safemode, nothing!!!!!!!! this is a brand new k7n2 delta2 motherboard and i would hate to think that msi has a software issue that borked my board. i still have the asus board that i've never had any problems with. so, is it DEAD?????? :unsure:

if you don't unplug it from the wall... pulling the battery won't do any good.

 

unplug this thing. hit the powre button a few times to make sure you don't have ANY residual charge. then pull the battery.
