    I own an L4S8A2 equipped with P4 1.8A. Have a problem, after shutting down the PC & unplug the power chord (or turn of the stabilizer, at the next time I turn on the PC, the CMOS always reloads default values.

    Anybody has the same experience ?

    Do you get a checksum error? Maybe the mobo battery is going dead.

    No ..... I did not get any checksum error ...

    Is it possible that it is because of the clear cmos jumper settings is set to "clear cmos" ?

    Well to find out you could always move the jumper so the setting is on clear CMOS and see what happens. I always thought that you should only have the jumper in that postion when the power is turned off.

    Just take a look again, yes it has "CMOS Checksum Error". Does it always indicating that the battery need to be changed ?

    Sometimes the motherboards come with the batterys fitted the wrong way round but i belive that CMOS wouldn't work if this occured! Have you got a spare battery? They are easy to get - try a new one and see what happens. Did you say the jumper was set to clear CMOS cause that sounds a little suspicous try setting it on "do not clear cmos" or what ever setting there is on there!

    hope that helps a little ta ta

    That is not how it should be set. It should be set in the "normal" position.l
