Hey guys, i have a compaq sr1830nx, after i upgraded my bios from there website, i cant get to the BIOS setup, or windows. it says "Award BootBlock BIOS v1.0 BIOS ROM checksum error, detecting IDE Atapi Device..." i tried taking my cmos battery out for 30 seconds, and changing the cmos jumper position for a few seconds and nothing. Can someone please help me? BTW the mobo is a ASUS A8AE-LE.
