Also in BIOS setup, if you have SATA HD then check that the SATA controller is set to AHCI first, then IDE mode if necessary.

Wipe the HD to get the cleanest possible slate: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation After Step 1 running Clean All, follow Step 2 #2 to create partition and mark it active.

If install still fails, test your RAM with memtest86 CD for 5-6 passes or overnight: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Test your HD with maker's diag/repair full CD scan: HD Diagnostic
Thanks.
I will try this.

JanTore , are you clearing the cmos jumper correctly ( remove from pins 1 & 2 and place on pins 2 & 3 ) for about 30 secs this effectively "shorts" the pins , then replace the jumper back on pins 1 & 2

Yes I'm doing it correctly.
But nothing happens.
Is there another way to do it?

If the battery is almost dead will it 'short' the pins effectively?

A dead or dying battery can cause all sorts of weird issues, and will certainly cause the Bad Checksum error.

If you have an electronics shop nearby go and buy a new 3v CMOS battery. They're cheap.

Otherwise, enter the BIOS and Go to the Exit Tab and "Restore BIOS Defaults". That will clear the checksum error as long as the battery is good.

Well now I have changed the old battery with a new one, but it's still the same
I can't find an option where it says restore BIOS default. I have only "load optimize and load fail-safe defaults. And exit with save or without
Maybe I can take a picture of my screen and show you...

Load Optimized would be the one to try first. Then if that doesn't work try the Fail Safe ones.

Be sure to make note of you current and preferred settings on all tabs prior to doing this. You will want to set them back once you get rid of the checksum error.
