Ok I have checked the forums everywhere and from what I have understood so far is that it is normal to get the CMOS checksum error after updating the BIOS and I am supposed to immediately make changes in the BIOS and save it for everything to be ok.
If this is true I haven't a clue what to change. When the pc starts up it recognises exactly the correct XP2400 which was the idea for the update but I assume there are other settings within the bios that may be incorrect?
When I do manage to get into windows the fault in system manager is reported as my bios is trying to write to a secure address or something like that.
Has anyone any ideas as to what is best to do?
If I leave the update and continue with old bios everything is stable and it reads the cpu as an Athlon 2000Mhz but no model number. So should I leave well alone and not worry?
All my games seem to work fine but the reason for the new CPU to be able to play Oblivion and every time it is started it says Oblivion needs to close. Tell microsoft about this?
I assumed that it may be that the MB does not recognise the cpu sufficiently enough to work the game?
Just a thought Thanks for reading
