    Hi all,

    Im repairing an old computer for a friend....

    The problem is that it was giving a CMOS checksum error during boot..

    Ok so I replaced the CMOS battery...system booted up and runs fine...but here is the problem if I try to reboot the computer it dosent finish post (no beep) and the monitor does not come on (yes ive checked all wires and power)

    But if I reseat the CMOS battery the system will boot first time...untill I try to reboot.

    I have checked the battery voltage and it is fine...

    Any suggestions..........
