Randomly my wife was playing a video game on my sig rig. It BSOD's on her, she reboots. When it boots backup she gets a cmos checksum error and a Missing Floppy drive (error 40).
I clear cmos, reboot, this time it boots up to an 7F code on the board which is halt and check error message. Same error as before. So I hit F1 to continue everything works as normal. I go back in to cmos and disable the floppy drive, as I don't have one. Weird thing is, this computer has been running fine for 8 months with no problems, no BIOS changes.
I don't have any overclocks at all, so I don't see what could corrupt my BIOS.
If this is becomes a recurring problem, what are some tips? I've already changed out my ram and disabled SLI, as I've read that this mobo has this problem but no fixes. Maybe flash bios? Thanks!
