    Today, my son's computer suddenly wouldn't start. He has a 700 mhz AMD
    Athlon, 256 MB Ram, 30G Seagate HD, and is running Windows XP home SP2.
    The computer begins to start up but only gets to a screen that says
    Award Bootblock Bios V1.0 at the top of the screen. It then says Bios
    Checksum error detecting floppy drive A media. Insert system disk and
    press any key. Not knowing what it wanted I created XP boot disks to try
    but then I get a message saying "Error awdflash.exe not found. I also
    tried replacing the computer battery, which didn't help. No attempt was
    made to flash the bios but it sounds form the error message that that is
    what it is looking for? I have never flashed the bios and am not sure
    how to go about it. He has a Via KX-133 ATX Epox 7KXA motherboard. I
    need to make sure I find and download the right thing and then flash it
    correctly. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

    As far as any BIOS questions/problems I've ever had, I've always used
    www.wimsbios.com

    Many flash upgrades and utilities all there for downloading.
