Just bought a brand new Gigabyte M68M-S2P and im getting a Disk Boot Failure on my HDD which uses an IDE connector. Not sur whats going wrong, and going into the BIOS its not recognising the hard drive as...


Is this a new HDD? Disk Boot Failure means it cannot boot from the HDD. Plus you mentioned that it is not detected on the BIOS. You need to have this HDD replaced. Not even a reformat can help at all. It is a hardware problem you have there.

I have a Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 motherboard. I want to change the boot menu to boot from the CD. The problem is the up/down arrows won't move the highlight bar from the floppy.

I love using Gigabyte boards in my own Home Theater PCs, so I run across this problem sometimes when I'm setting them up for the first time with a USB keyboard. Pretty sure the problem you're having is the same--the BIOS isn't set to 'recognize' USB keyboards by default, so try the following:
  • Turn it off, and connect an older PS/2 style connecting KB to it;
  • Turn it back on, enter the BIOS, and find the settings page with 'USB Keyboard' in it;
  • Change that setting to BIOS rather than SYSTEM, so next time you boot, it will 'see' your USB KB. Plug in your USB KB before rebooting, then save the settings and reboot the PC again.
  • You can leave the old PS/2 KB plugged in to make sure you can change things, but try your USB keyboard out as well. You should be able to control BIOS settings upon reboot.

Hopefully this was all you needed. If it persists, be aware that some Gigabyte mobos have had BIOS issues galore (eBay is full of Gigabyte BIOS chips).

Six month old Simpletech 500 GB ext. drive not recognized

I had the exact same problem. Solved by removing Simpletech drive from the 'flashy-box'. Unplugged drive from internals and threw the 'Pinnaferrina' case away and installed it on my motherboards extra sata plugin site (if it has one). If you open your computer case it should be labled on the Motherboeard as such. Mine has four. On the first attempt when I started the computer i Had no OS system showing on first boot-up. Shut off computer and power and shifted SATA (RED Cable) to another Sata plug on Motherboard and it booted right up and I had the drive back. You will need a longer Sata cable than the attached to the Simpletech drive and a power cable that matches the one on the Simletech . Forget looking for the drivers on the net and the Simpletech web site was no use.

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops

Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike

When i boot Gigabyte K8N-SLI a long beep is heard untill completely booted

Long beeps can indicate a processor or board failure, but i would check your graphics card first, uninstall it in device manager and then remove and reseat the card. Although i think there is mobo failure imminent
