How to Reset BIOS on the GA-X58A-UD3RMotherboards often include hundreds of settings in the BIOS to adjust the performance and stability of your computer. Many of these settings, when improperly configured, can prevent the computer from booting. The traditional way of resetting the BIOS when it doesn't boot is to open the case and place a jumper on the motherboard or remove the battery for several minutes. Most newer motherboards include a reset button near the peripheral ports. The Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R uses this more convenient method. Instructions Power down your computer by selecting "Shut down" in the Windows task bar or press the power button on your case for four seconds. Leave the power cable plugged in and the switch on the back of your case in the "On" position. Press the "Clr CMOS" button on the back of your computer for five seconds until the computer boots. The button is located with the peripheral ports between a USB port and the coaxial S/PDIF port. Press the "Delete" key when your computer starts up to enter the BIOS setup. Pressing the "Clr CMOS" button while the computer is powered on could result in data loss.

I've just installed the GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0 motherboard. It see's my SSD containing my OS but it doesn't see my SATA drive or DVD player. I'm guessing its a BIOS (I'm running version FE of the BIOS) configuration issue but I have no idea where to start as neither drive appear in the BIOS.


You may go on line to Tweaking.com and download their Windows repair program (Free Version) as this program digs deep into all areas of the computer. The reason I suggest that is because some of the code used to locate hardware and various functions are fixed. If the motherboard is new, the BIOs are up-to-date or more recent and they should locate the devices at boot time. Other than that, replace the MB as long as its under warranty.

2.4GHz 533MHz FSB to 2.4Ghz 800MHz FSB


Yes, you can put any Pentium 4 or Celeronsocket 478 processor in there, including those with an 800MHz FSB onthe processor. Don't waste your time with only a faster FSB unless youjust happen to have one laying around, the performance won't improvethat much. This one is $50 from Newegg.

Upgrading the components is not overclocking. Overclocking is when youforce the components to run faster than they are rated for. Yourmotherboard is set up to allow this, through the BIOS. Severaloverclocking features areintegrated into the BIOS, including the ability to adjust the FSBfrequency, and the Vcore, DDR, and AGP voltages.

If you choose to overclock, be prepared to make frequent changes toachieve best performance vs. stability. I would suggest upgrading yourcooling to the best you can afford as well. Your PC may lock up orrefuse to boot for no apparent reason if you overclock. Be preparedfor that and know what to do about it before you start youroverclocking career.
