Thread: EP35-DS3P Backup Bios checksum fail

    Default EP35-DS3P Backup Bios checksum fail

    Hello,
    I had this MB running for a week and then came home from dinner to find it constantly rebooting with this message.
    Warning: Backup BIOS checksum fail
    It would then attempt to load BIOS and get about halfway thru and reboot.
    The board has been sent to CA, My question is: What could cause this?
    OCing? bad ram? anything I have control over? I would think that the dual BIOS system is designed to prevent this very event from happening, is this system less than perfect? I have another board on the way.
    I was running an E4500 CPU and 2G of crucial ballistix, Corsair 650W PS and XFX 9600GT.

    Thanks for any and all help in advance.
    Rick

    Any of those things, Did the power go out on your while it was booting? Or maybe some kids kept pushing the on/off button?

    Well in that case...You sure you didnt fry your ram? Crucial Die more often then anything, do you have other old ram to test this?
