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 your hard drive is still working fine, you shouldn't need to reinstall Windows again. Most of the time your PC will perform as it did before your motherboard died by simply reinstalling the original hard drive.
If not then do this.
Reinstall windows with your restore CD, and with most gateway laptops you should have a drivers and applications CD that restores your motherboard drivers and applications to their original locations.

If you lost your drivers CD, you can download them all here.

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn&param=5376

When asked, you should allow XP updates so that Service Pack 3 can install. This will add a few windows based drivers to your laptop that may be necessary for better video, audio and wireless performance.

Your restore CD may not ask for your CD Key, this is typical for a Vendors original restoration, but if for some reason it does, the number on the back of your laptop will work. Mine validated just fine.

I have tried to reformat my scsi HDD with windows XP home, it asks me to install drivers in my A drive. I have no A drive and what drivers do I install?


IT MIGHT HAPPEN THAT THE WINDOWS XP VERSION YOU USED HAS NO SUFFICIENT DRIVERS FOR YOUR COMPUTER TO RUN AS EXPECTED. PLEASE TRY TO USE YOU MOTHERBOARD CD TO INSTALL ALL BASIC DRIVERS. IF THE PROBLEM PERSIST, GO TO CONTROL PANEL- DEVICE MANAGER- AND UNINSTALL ALL DRIVERS. TRY TO FIND FOXCOM MOTHERBOARD CD.IT IS USUALLY COMPATIBLE WITH MOST MOTHERBOARDS TO INSTALL FOR YOU ALL THE NECESSARY DRIVERS.

THANK YOU,

No sound device


? mark means no sound driver install or errors in Device Manager. u can check ur mother board cd room or can search ur audio driver in web or below may be ur answer


Question: Where do I locate motherboard sound drivers?
Answer: Users who have motherboards with on-board audio (often with VIA, Realtek, or C-Media chipsets) may have issues with their audio or AC'97 errors in Device Manager. Often this is caused because the operating system has been reinstalled and the motherboard chipset drivers are not installed. To resolve this issue try following the below steps.
Let Windows redetect drivers
If you have not recently reinstalled Microsoft Windows it's possible that your audio drivers are simply corrupt. Open Device Manager and remove all devices under "Sound, video and game controllers" and any "Other devices". Once removed reboot the computer and let Microsoft Windows re-detect the audio drivers.
Motherboard chipset drivers
Reinstalling the motherboard chipset drivers will usually resolve this issue. If your computer came with a Motherboard CD, install the chipset drivers from the CD and the sound drivers if also available on the CD.
If you do not have a motherboard CD, obtain the motherboard chipset drivers from the motherboard manufacturer.
Sound card drivers
If after installing the motherboard chipset drivers you continue to have issues install the sound drivers. We suggest you download the sound drivers from the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer.
A listing of motherboard manufacturers and their drivers can be found on our motherboard chipset drivers page.

System Restore


Yes you can use a disk which is used for reformatting the system just like you can reinstall the windows in your system.
It will automatically reinstall the all booting files in your system and also remove your old operating problems.

But after installing the windows in the system you you have also need to install all the Motherboard Drivers in the system. If you have a Motherboard Drivers C.D. with you...fine...But if not have a Motherboard C.D. don't afraid at all.....you can find all the available Motherboard Drivers from the Website of HP.
