User' s Manual

Appendix D: AWARD BIOS Error Message

During the power-on self test (POST), the BIOS either sounds a beep code or displays a

message when it detects a correctable error.

Following is a list of POST messages for the ISA BIOS kernel. Specific chipset ports and

BIOS extensions may include additional messages. An error message may be followed by

a prompt to press F1 to continue or press DEL to enter Setup.

Beep

Currently the only beep code indicates that a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot

initialize the video screen to display any additional information. This beep code consists of a

single long beep followed by two short beeps.

BIOS ROM Checksum Error – System Halted

The checksum of the BIOS code in the BIOS chip is incorrect, indicating the BIOS code

may have become corrupt. Contact your system dealer to replace the BIOS.

CMOS Battery Failed

CMOS battery is no longer functional. Contact your system dealer for a replacement

battery.

CMOS Checksum Error – Defaults Loaded

Checksum of CMOS is incorrect, so the system loads the default equipment configuration.

BIOS ROM checksum error – system halt

Award BootBlock Bios V1.1 BIOS ROM Checksum Error

BIOS ROM checksum error occurs of the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) ROM (read only memory) or the firmware of you BIOS cannot be read. The error is different from the CMOS Checksum failure or CMOS checksum error. CMOS Checksum error only occurs when the settings on your BIOS setup doesn’t match the hardware connected into your computer system. Or maybe you have enabled something in the BIOS that you don’t have any existing hardware connected into your computer.

Your BIOS firmware or software might be damage. In some cases, this error can be fixed by resetting your BIOS into its default values using the BIOS Jumper resetting block on your motherboard. Shorting the jumper pin number 2 and pin number 3 will reset your BIOS into its original firmware.

Some case of this error is the failure to update your BIOS ROM or abnormal termination of the BIOS ROM update during the process. That was just the common reason why it was happen. But of course there are so many reasons why your BIOS ROM has been corrupted. Worse case scenario of this is when your CMOS Chip has been already worn out or its chips are already bad or not working. If this is your case all you need to do is to purchase the CMOS chip suitable for your computer.

Since your BIOS ROM could not be read or your BIOS ROM firmware was corrupted, we need to re-flash your BIOS ROM. Flashing is the process of updating the software or firmware stored into a memory or a micro chip. Flashing your BIOS ROM need to have a copy of your “BIOS Firmware” and a “Flashing Software”. You must be careful on flashing your BIOS ROM this may result permanent damage on your hardware if not done properly. Better to consult the expert if you can’t do it by your self. Flashing Software or utility is very important here. This software will help you to write values data onto the BIOS ROM. Flashing takes time to do, so you must be sure that the power supply of your computer is stable. There is no scheduled brownout in your area, all power cables are inserted securely on the power outlet so that when someone touches it, the chord was not easily removed from the power source. In short you must prepare everything you need before you begin.

Flashing need floppy disk drive/disk which able to boot you on DOS (Disk Operating System) where you’re BIOS update/firmware the flashing utility was there. If you don’t have a floppy disk drive, the alternative tool is your CD ROM burn and bootable disk into your CD ROM then use to boot on your CD ROM Drive. I don’t really sure if you can use the USB Drive to boot in. But I know there is a tool you can use nowadays to make a USB Flash Drive bootable. Just search on Google if your want to try it.

Here are some instructions how you can flash your BIOS, just visit the link and you will read the instructions there: http://www.lejabeach.com/Guide/awardbios.html

And if you don’t have a floppy disk drive, try this link https://www.biosflash.com/index.htm it will show you how to flash your BIOS with the aide of CD ROM.

Hope that the above information will help you to do the job and fixing your BIOS error.

Bios rom checksum error "drive A error, system halted"

Got the floppy emulator in and the system sees it as the A drive just as it would a normal floppy and asks me to install a disk.

20211105_150602.jpg


But when I go to Biostars website and click on either the flashing utility or the bios files, it shows "pick an app to open ftp link". After some research It seems newer browsers don't support this type of link. I tried internet explorer and while it attempts to load them, it appears the files/servers have been pulled.

20211105_152014.jpg


Any ideas where else I could find the bios files?

Just used the floppy emulator software to format the USB into a dos boot disk. The system boots into DOS and I was able to get PS2 to work. Turns out I had the keyboard in the mouse port (colors aren't the same) it still doesn't show power like NumLock etc, but it does work in dos.


It turns out, biostar has a legacy site and a new site under basically the same url. The new site has the board and downloads that work for the bios. So I have downloaded the bios. However the Award bios flashing utility for dos is not there. So I need to find that.
