    Dear Digit,

    Problem 1:
    I am having a "CMOS Check-Sum Error Problem", whenever
    I try to reboot in UPS backup mode. I am experiencing this problem
    from the past 2-3months. Whenever the main power supply cuts-off
    I cannot reboot properly; and I am interrupted with the error message
    "CMOS-CHECKSUM ERROR-defaults loaded". I loose the current system
    time settings and it dates back to Jan 2000, as the current system date,
    with all the default settings.

    I have the follwing configuration:
    PENTIUM III PROCESSOR 1.1GHz,256 MB SDRAM, Mercury Motherboard(815E TFSX), V-Guard UPS.

    Please help me solve this problem.

    Problem 2:

    I have one more Problem associated with this issue. Ocassionally I get a Warning Message that, "Warning!Your System case is opening!!". This happens during CMOS booting. I dont know what to do. Please Help!!
    Thanking you,
    yours faithfully,
    vinod.y

    1 > the solution to ur first prob is to replace the CMOS battery..

    2> Ur second solution has got to do with BIOS setting.
    All u got to do is to disable CHASIS INTRUSION DETECTION.
    I've got dis feature on my INTEL D865GBF MOBO... don't know
    bout ur's.
