Under normal circumstances you do not need to boot into a drive to flash your BIOS. Normally you would take a dos boot floppy and the latest BIOS firmware and put them on a floppy, which is then inserted into the floppy drive before turning the computer on, and if the bios boot priority is set to boot from floppy before the harddrive, it will ask to boot from the floppy, which allows you to flash the bios from a command line or text graphical interface.

*Note that you may be able to use a cd, but floppy is the oldschool way - if you could boot into an operating system you could use the modern methods which flash the bios while running an OS.

Your board comes with Q-Flash in the BIOS, which means you are able to log into the bios and flash it using this utility and by putting the BIOS firmware on a floppy and inserting it into the computer.

Please see Here for instructions and Here for the latest firmware.

If you cannot access the BIOS, meaning the BIOS is completely bricked, then you will need to buy a new motherboard. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a BIOS which is completely bricked.

Flashed the wrong bios on GA-MA785GMT-UD2H board. Gigabyte told me to short out pins 4 and 7 on the M-bios chip to force the B-bios chip to reflash the M chip. Did this but the PC still won't reboot.


Try taking out the CMOS battery, it looks like a big watch battery. Leave it out for about 5 mins. and put it back in, This should clear CMOS and return it to factory settings. Hope this helps..

Your BIOS to your GA-8I848P-G Motherboard would be flashable to the BIOS chip on the Board it's self. Make sure you read Gigabytes BIOS flash instructions. If the board is up and running Windows, then Gigabyte has there LIVE BIOS update you can run from there website!

Good luck..

Hi guys, I have a computer with Gigabyte


Sounds like your on board graphics are bad, but since you have a pci-e expansion slot you can buy a pci-e graphics card to get it going. Hope this helps..

Flashed bios wont boot ga-ep43-ud3l


Hi,
Seems like your bios update failed, was corrupt, wrong version or was interrupted.

It's very difficult to recover from a failed bios flash , but if you are lucky you can try clearing cmos then take the battery out overnight. Then reinstall battery and do a HARD BOOT.

If that does not work try this site and read recent comments.

Good luck,

You could try a program like EZ-Flash to flash the bios without using a dos disk. Gigabyte should have some type of program on their website that would do the flashing without makeing a disk as most new computers do not have a floppy drive nor does Windows XP/Vista use dos. Hope this helps.

ADA3700AEP5AP 3700 Clawhammer wont boot


I believe that it should work with that chip. If you have the manual for the MoBo try resetting the cmos on the board. That should put every thing back to its defaults. It is posable that it is trying to run it at the wrong voltage.
