Question (Checksum CMOS) HELP PLEASE!

Hey, I just upgraded my bios and when I rebooted I got a message that said Checksum CMOS and another option that said Reset to Default Values. So I clicked Reset to Default Values and I didn't get the message again. Everything worked great but my games still froze. So I flashed the bios again and same message. So I went into the bios and exited out and it booted into windows right after I exited out, and my games didn't freeze. So everytime I boot I have to go into the bios and exit out.

help please!

Did you "Save" your changes ? After you change any settings, they must be 'Saved" before you Exit.
Normally you use the "F10" key.

- Try reseting your bios - see sticky
- Run memtest86 and see if you get errors

Check your memory...... as Shawn stated.
"freezing" may be a memory problem!
