OMG......don't tell me you flashed the BIOS and halted the update before it was fininished or flashed with the wrong BIOS? If not, then Jumper the Mobo to reset the BIOS or take out the CMOS barttery. If you still get a check sum error, after the BISO Reset to default, your mobo may have become a frisbee!!
