Updated bios problem on a780gm-a

I recently reinstalled windows on my desktop. I was installing all drivers necessary on the motherboard since I did not have the install cd that came with the mobo. In the process I also updated the bios.

well as soon as the bios was updated, the desktop restarted. However, nothing works now. the monitor does not come on, the keyboard does not work ( hitting the caps key, number lock key don't light up). Can't tell if the mouse works or not.

Is there a way to get the mobo to work again, revert it back before the update, or do I have a paperweight now?
I have the same problem. The monitor and keyboard do not work. I tried my monitor and keyboard on another computer to verify that they work and they are fine.

I think you had a bad flash!

So re-download a new bios file from there web site and try again, with these instructions....

Updating the BIOS
You can download and install updated BIOS for this motherboard from the
manufacturer’s Web site. New BIOS provides support for new peripherals, improvements
in performance, or fixes for known bugs. Install new BIOS as follows:

1 If your motherboard has a BIOS protection jumper, change the setting to
allow BIOS flashing.

2 If your motherboard has an item called Firmware Write Protect in Advanced
BIOS features, disable it. (Firmware Write Protect prevents
BIOS from being overwritten.)

3 Create a bootable system disk. (Refer to Windows online help for
information on creating a bootable system disk.)

4 Download the Flash Utility and new BIOS file from the manufacturer’s
Web site. Copy these files to the system diskette you created in Step 3.

5 Turn off your computer and insert the system diskette in your computer’s
diskette drive. (You might need to run the Setup Utility and change the
boot priority items on the Advanced BIOS Features Setup page, to
force your computer to boot from the floppy diskette drive first.)

6 At the A:\ prompt, type the Flash Utility program name and the file name
of the new bios and then press <Enter>. Example: AMINF340.EXE
040706.ROM

7 When the installation is complete, remove the floppy diskette from the
diskette drive and restart your computer. If your motherboard has a
Flash BIOS jumper, reset the jumper to protect the newly installed BIOS
from being overwritten. The computer will restart automatically.

Hope This helps

Have a nice day!

if you updated bios, you may want to see if all bios settings are correct. i have seen bios updates disable the on board audio. verify that is working correctly (re-enable if necessary) and see where that takes you.

There is no audio on high definition audio bus,how can i fix it,where can i get the software for fixing this problem EliteGroup ECS A780GM-A Motherboard - AMD 780G,...


3 things to check.
Assuming you are using Windows, go to Control Panel, Device Manager,
and check that the audio driver is correctly installed, and then check in Control Panel, Sounds that the correct Playback Device is Selected.
Obviously you will have to reinstall the driver if it's not present.

If you don't have a manual go to the link below download the manual and look at page 56 which tells you how to setup the Audio.

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=866&CategoryID=1&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=7&LanID=0

Finally, using the link above go to the FAQ for the motherboard, look at the audio section. There is a bios update to fix no sound output, but do check everything else first.

Best of luck.

ECS A780GM-A audio wont work


This board is notorious for the audio going out on it.

You can try a bios update to see if it addresses the problem.

Otherwise you might have to just buy a pci audio card.

They're $20 or less so it might be worth it to just pick one up instead of spending hours trying to solve your problem.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!
