The checksum error can be a few different things. It could be a bad or old CMOS battery, change it to see if you still get your error. Open the case it looks like a watch battery.
Or you could need a BIOS update. And possibly you have shut down your computer illegally...meaning "If the computer was had the power disconnected while it was still running it is possible this could cause the CMOS to become corrupt." ...which is the result from your first problem.
If the CMOS values have become corrupted entering the values in CMOS setup and saving and exiting CMOS should resolve your issues.
