    Thank you, I still can't access windows nor the bios setup. The machine shws no display. The BIOS is shut. I have read the only solution is to buy a new Bios or replace the MOBO. is there no way to maybe hard reset the bios to the previous state. Can anyone help. Ican't buy or replace a MOBO right now.

Windows 7 with Gigabyte motherboard says "ntldr is missing"


Check if UEFI is disabled after flash with newer BIOS version. If you flash BIOS the default settings gets loaded again. Check hard disk settings and boot settings.

My mother Bord "GA-790FXTA-UD5" NO Booting


I heard that if you are using an X6 Processor you need to have the Bios Updated, From what i have read so far the only way to do that is use a X3 or X4 that is compatible with the current Bios to boot up and update the Bios. This website http://us.test.giga-byte.com/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=3270&ver=#anchor_os Shows which processors are compatible with which Bios. And of course here is the website for the Bios updates http://us.test.giga-byte.com/Support/Motherboard/BIOS_Model.aspx?ProductID=3270&ver=#anchor_os

Wont accept bios update that was sent from packard bell after total failure keeps asking for bios file. also clear cmos feature on board three pins one with white square which i assume is pin 1 but header...


Ga-8SIML is a generic gigabyte mobo and does not need a packard bell bios. you could goto the gigabyte site and get latest from there. If your PB displays a logo at the start then its likely that you will lose that logo as the generic bios will not know it was fitted to a PB machine but thats no hardship.
Be sure to check the board version. version 1.0 takes one type of bios ver 3.2 another and they wont load into the wrong versions of the board. F12 is the latest non beta. I just did two of these recently so i know F12 is ok.
suggest you visit gigabyte site anyway just to check how the bios should be blasted and which version supports which mobo model no..

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270 Intel Pentium 4 @ 2.66Ghz, and I recently got the post virus or whatever it's called and now I need to update my BIOS to fix it. But I need to know the default factory BIOS...


You need to go to the following site:
support.dell.com
Here you can enter the service tag or the system model and get your system information (probably includes the bios ver.) and the update you need.

Failure of both (dual) bios after updating


Sorry bud, when you flashed the BIOS it obviously did not like it..Nine long continuous beeps is ROM BIOS checksum error. Another words you need a new CMOS chip as you cannot backdate a flash BIOS. You can't boot from any disk because the boot process never even gets to the part where you can use your system. BIOS is first when you start up and if you can't get by it then nothing will work. The only advice is use this as a good learning experience and make a backup of your BIOS in the future. Good luck..don't shoot the messenger. Please rate this solution before you log out.

BIOS update (motherboard GA-6BX7+)


Please disable "BIOS Flash Protection" function in the BIOS or by Jumper. About the details, please refer to your motherboard manual.

refer to page 22 of THIS manual

If you "search" the word "flash" there are many references that may be of assistance if the jumper does not resolve issue for you

Bios update


Hi ber2zo,
As long as you follow the directions there should not be a problem. Gigabyte does explain how to flash & back up the bios with Introduction site.
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Utility_Model.aspx?ProductID=2427
Read the warning & get bios file here.
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/BIOS_Model.aspx?ProductID=2427
Never update a bios if the new bios file does not fix an issue.

Good Luck!
Mike
