I currently have an ASUS A8N5X 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard in my computer. I recently moved, but in the few months between my last place and my current one my computer was stored by my brother (rest of my stuff was in storage). The only thing I have changed since the move is the chassis (to an Antec 900), and I know everything is connected properly (I double checked). When I tried booting my computer for the first time since the move (earlier today), I received the cmos checksum error that I indicated in the topic. Initially I decided to try F1 (revert to default), but when the computer (appeared to) completed POST it froze. So then I tried booting with a Linux disk (currently installed on my computer is Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux, using the GRUB bootloader) and it started normally, but indicated that my system time was incorrect. I tried setting it through Ubuntu, synchronized it with the local time, and tried booting again. I entered the BIOS to see if the system time had in fact changed, it had not. So I manually changed it to the local date and time and tried to boot again. It still froze at the end/immediately after POST (it doesn't go anywhere after the last device pops up). Currently all I have in there is one graphics card and three hard drives. The BIOS indicated that the RAM was fine. I'm not really sure what to do at this point, when I researched the issue it indicated that I may have a corrupt BIOS or a depleted battery. I'm not sure how to remedy either case, and I am wondering if the reason the battery could have depleted is because the computer was not plugged in while it was at my brother's house for a few months. Help?
