Question about Gigabyte GA-K8NS Motherboard

1 Answer

Boot problem I have had a Gigabyte K8NS for about 2 year now till a few weeks ago it died. It was the only dead component on my computer, I am not sure what happened, but I tested every other component and they worked fine. I bought another K8NS and installed it tonight and am now having the problem where it will power on (see: richy's problem also in this forum), and the CD drive will constantly restart showing that the computer restarts repeatitivly. I took out all components and ran as barebones as possible as suggested as a fix on richy's thread, and it still does this. Any help appreciated. Eric

My Gigabyte Mother Board shows some time Load Optimized Defaults then boot / Load Optimized Defaults then reboot / enter BIOS. How to fix it?

Two things come to mind first. Number one would be making sure you have the most up to date bios. Number two would be that maybe the motherboard battery is dying/dead and isn't holding enough charge to after being shut down to save the option you selected.

Screen went black, except for narrow band at top

If your camera is not dead, It is surely dying. Perhaps just a flat cable lost connection inside your camera, But more likely the electronics is on the end of life. My DX7590, started to act strange a few year ago, but I managed to shoot pictures still. I could not look back what I had shot, but I still made lots of pictures, till also shooting was impossible. (I could get the pictures from the memory card with an external card reader on my computer. My next step was again (a better) compact, but since over 2 years now I'm using a DSLR. I have learned a lot about digital photography with my Kanon camera's.

Gigabyte k8ns pro Drivers sm bus controller

It would be hard to look for that driver manually. It would take a lot of time. If you want it automated, then I suggest that you install RadarSync. It will look for the drivers that your computer needs including Gigabyte k8ns pro.
