\015 I replaced the cmos battery, checksum bad message came up and now I only get the key symbol on a black screen. Can anyone help?\015

Answers :

My suggestion would be to try flashing (reload) the bios. You should be able to find a utility from your PC or motherboard manufacturer's website that allows you to create a bootable disk for this purpose.
