George,

Updating your BIOS firmware should be done with great care, as it could render the board unusable. That being said, most things of this nature must be done carefully. That is not to say, "Don't do it!"

Go to the website, read the instructions and perform the steps as outlined carefully and you should have no problems.

Here is the correct starting point:

Good luck!

The AC97 on Motherboards after new Windows installation not working. I have Gigabyte 7VM400M=RZ


You should say what version of Windows. The AC97 chipset is so common that it must be supported. Many Windows XP drivers will work for Windows 7. You must unpack the driver files and select it manually from device manager.

No Sound output im using Gigabyte 7VM400M-RZ


Yes without the jumpers in the correct position the on-board audio won't function. Just follow the diagram. Make sure that there is no power to the board before you make adjustments to the jumpers just to be safe. It's also good to ground yourself by touch the case (if it's metal) before you touch any of the components and or motherboard.

Memory up-grade


you can go max 2GB (1GB each) DDR333 PC2700.
you have to reset the bus rate to match the RAM speed.

if you stay with DDR266 then you don't have to reset the bus rate
