-Athlon X2 5600+
-2x gb corsair ram
I took all of these parts out of different systems, and they were all working fine. At first the computer wouldnt go past the boot screen before shutting down. I moved the cmos jumper around and took out the cmos battery for a while, but that didnt work. I then reinstalled the heatsink that solved that problem, and i was able to install windows and ubuntu.
It wouldnt save any of the bios settings, so i changed the cmos battery and that worked
Now when i boot up the computer, it starts to go into windows and restarts. After doing this a few times it will go into windows and everything is fine (except for once when it just restarted as soon as it got to the desktop) How do i fix this!
Also, i never get the screen asking me if i want to go into xp or ubuntu., even though i know ubuntu works because i worked fine when i installed it.
When it first boots up it says "cmos checksum bad." Is this why it has to restart a bunch of times before going into windows?
