    Hello guys, great site you have here.

    I have a problem that i hope you can help me out with. My lad has a Imedia B2619 with a MCP73VT-PM Motherboard and i have tried upgrading his CPU from a E1500 to a E6600 and was having problems with it. So i have tried updating the BIOS after finding out the the board is a re-branded ECS GF7050VT-M5 with the BIOS roms that are on the ECS site.

    Since doing this i get this message on POST:


    CMOS Checksum Bad
    CMOS Date/Time Not Set
    Press F1 to run setup

    So i go into the BIOS and reset it to default settings and set the Date/Time and then save and exit.


    Computer loads back up and gives the same CMOS error. So basically the BIOS isn't saving. I have tried leaving battery out, using the jumper and even bought a new battery. But no luck.

    I have downloaded and tried both BIOS updates from the ECS website and they both have the same problem with the CMOS... I have tried linking to the 2 updates but this site will not let me.

    Because i am stupid i forgot to save the original BIOS. So if anyone could lead me in the right direction to getting the right BIOS, that would be great! Or if anyone knows any other solutions, that would be great also.

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    Thanks guys for getting back to me. That's a shame. The computer still works fine but we have to disconnect the keyboard whilst it loads up then plug it back in once it has loaded up. O and the time and date is always wrong with the Cmos/BIOS not saving.

    Thinking i might just look for another 775 MOBO for the computer, one that supports DDR3 memory and what will work with the E6600 chip without any hassle. Do you guys know if any M-ATX should fit in the case?

    Thanks
