Recently I replaced my new hard disk and tried to boot my PC from my previous hard disk for some work. It did not boot. But now when I replaced it with the new one, now, my pc sometimes show a 'CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR-Defaults loaded' msg at startup. Also, sometimes cpu beeps PC freezes at welcome screen. When I restart the system time changes to initial time((Jan 2000, 12:00)). Please help me out.

Try to clear the BIOS by doing this:Disconnect the power cable from the back of the computer. Open the side cover and carefully take out the cmos battery (looks like a silvery button). Keep it out for about 15 minutes. Reinstall and reboot. You will probably get a checksome error or some other notification. If you do, enter BIOS and set time and date, save the new values and let the computer boot. There are computers in which other keys have to be used to enter BIOS. You can find the correct key when looking at the screen right after pressing the start button. Look for what key you have to press to enter setup.
