CMOS Checkdigit problem

  Cicha13 10:18 25 Jul 04

Running an Advent 2.2 then my Audigy Sound card got blown through a lightning strike! When I tried to replace it I now get an error message on booting up Error 251 CMOS checkdigit does not agree reverting to default config. Can anyone help

CMOS error 251 shows that a memory module has failed. Your lightning strike may have done more damage than you think. Try reseating your memory modules and reboot. If it fails again, remove DIMM 2 and reboot. If that fails remove DIMM 1, replace DIMM 2 and reboot. Try them individually in other DIMM sockets too. If you can, try them in another mobo (a friend?).
If no luck then you may need to buy new RAM - or even a new mobo too! First on your shopping list should be a surge protector strip for your PC and peripherals.
