Failure of both (dual) bios after updating

I updated my bios from version F4 to F9 (new CPU) - bios from official gigabyte website, I did it strongly according to Userś manual, but after restarting PC there is no starting of POST, only black screen without any message, and continuous long beeps. I tried to reflash the bios from DOS boot floppy and from DOS boot CD disc, but no booting is possible. Is any possibility to repair the both bios?

Sorry bud, when you flashed the BIOS it obviously did not like it..Nine long continuous beeps is ROM BIOS checksum error. Another words you need a new CMOS chip as you cannot backdate a flash BIOS. You can't boot from any disk because the boot process never even gets to the part where you can use your system. BIOS is first when you start up and if you can't get by it then nothing will work. The only advice is use this as a good learning experience and make a backup of your BIOS in the future. Good luck..don't shoot the messenger. Please rate this solution before you log out.

Hi Orville,

Your problem is all about your motherboard you need to updated to BIOS firmware to solve your problem.

Go to the gigabyte website then go to your motherboard page and download and updated to the latest firmware for your bios.

Steps in flashing BIOS
How to Reflash Motherboard BIOS About updating BIOS... The whole BIOS updating procedure should be treated with extreme caution. If you do not encounter any system instability or bugs with the current BIOS version, we suggest that you keep it. If you determine to flash BIOS, you are taking a personal risk of BIOS flash failure. Please contact your supplier or our distributors/resellers for further remedy in case system crashes unfortunately because of BIOS flash failure. Before you begin... 1. Please make sure the BIOS version you want to flash matches your motherboard model. 2. If your BIOS is flash protected, please do not enable BIOS Flash Protection under Advanced CMOS Setup (AMI BIOS) or Advanced BIOS Features (AWARD BIOS) in BIOS menu. 3. Never interrupt when you BIOS is being updated. 4. Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems using the current version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result in system malfunction. Three BIOS Flash Utilities... We provide three BIOS flash utilities at our website. Below are the overviews. 1 : flashbios_qflash.gif A BIOS flash utility embedded in Flash ROM. Not all motherboards have the Q-Flash, please use @BIOS or DOS flash utility to update BIOS if your motherboard does not have Q-Flash. Features-- With this utility, you only have to stay in the BIOS menu when you want to update BIOS. No need to enter DOS or O.S. mode. Caution-- Make sure you have a functional floppy disk with the correct BIOS version for your motherboard. UEFI - Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif 2 : flashbios_atbios.gif A Windows-based BIOS live update utility. Features-- @BIOS helps you search for, download, and then update the latest BIOS in Windows operating system. Caution-- Make sure your O.S. environment is stable. UEFI - Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif 3 : DOS Flash utility Features-- The flash utility is a combination of AMI and AWARD BIOS flash utility. You can use it with both AMI and AWARD BIOS. Caution-- Make sure you have a functional DOS boot disk with the correct BIOS version for your motherboard.

I hope my solution may help you.
Thanks for using Fixya...;-)

I update my motherboard bios then restart. CPU fan running but monitor still black no display.. i try clear the bios bu t still dosen`t work.. what should i do?


You need to flash your bios to an earlier version and see if that fixes the problem. What may have happened is you might have updated it to a version not supported by some or all of your hardware, I recommend putting it back to the factory default BIOS.

Dear Friends i have used in gigabyte mother board model no:GA-G41M-ES2L the problem is how i update my bios now is currently used in old version 1.0 but i have to update my bios pls tell me and solve...


you need to flash the bios .

download the new bios from gigabyte website and follow their instructions on how to update bios. be very carefull when doing this because if done incorrectly it would render your motherboard useless permanently .

in my experience if your m/b is working its best not to update the bios only time i would update the bios would be if the new bios update has new features that i really needed . if not i would not really flash the bios .
