I have an SK8V with Opteron 246 and 2x 1GB ram. My first attempt at\nflashing from 1002 to 1003 bios failed - the flash hanged while\nerasing. So I got a new bios chip from ASUS with 1003 flashed on it.\nI installed and all was fine. Then I shut the system down overnight\nand in the morning I booted it up. The message I got was a: Bad Bios\nCheck Sum error. So, I replaced the CMOS battery (just to be sure) and\ndid a bios recovery to 1003. The system booted up fine again. Than, I\ntried to reboot the system and it gave the same error, once again I had\nto reflash and system was fine. Now on every reboot I get this error\nand I have to reflash to get the system up. I'm nervous as it is\nflashing a bios especially after the failed 1st attempt, and now I am\nforced to flash on every boot - sweating buckets here.\n\nAny ideas anyone??? Is this a problem with 1003 - it has been out for\nover a year now. I flashed to 1003 because it was said to fix Qfan and\nCPU temperature reporting - which I second.\n\nThanks\nR.
