I got this message: "CMOS checksum error" right after my PC shows the hard drive info while it's booting up. Won't get past the windows screen...
Where should I start to look what's causing this error message? Any suggestion?

Thanks for helping me!

I got that problem before. But mine says click F1 to continue and after doing it, my PC boots up normally. I think it has something to do with your bios settings... Did you think to check the bios?

Anyway, this page lists the probable causes:

Most commonly, CMOS battery needs replacing.

Hope that helps.
