Question about EliteGroup ECS A780GM-A Motherboard - AMD 780G, Socket AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit
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
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!
