I'm having a problem booting up my computer. Originally I had a few checksum error warnings and suspected the battery as the voltage was very low. Replacement did not cure problem and it is now only possible to boot up from cold if the battery is removed/replaced first. The BIOS is Phoenix revision 1013 and the mobo ASUS A8N SLI deluxe. Advice and suggestions welcome.

Well if CMOS battery does not correct matters, it looks like the CMOS chip is faulty

Have you checked the New battery for volts, You may have bought a dud

The new battery reads at just over three volts. I did wonder about replacing the CMOS chip. It's certainly a cheaper option than replacing the motherboard. Socket 939 motherboards are getting scarce now.

I would be tempted to flash the BIOS before replacing the BIOS chip (if that is possible on your board).

I'm sure it is possible to flash the BIOS. I'll give it a go.
