BIOS ROM Checksum Error Problem

A few other sites have seen this issue when changing hardware. Most recommend, disconnecting the hard drives, optical drives and floppy. Then clearing the CMOS by removing the battery and/or moving the jumper. Let it sit over night or for an hour and then re-insert the battery and hook everything back up. Boot the system.

When you say working on, what do you mean exactly?
