Re: gigabyte GA 8GP NXP DUO

Hi, A couple of possibilities/things to try: 1. After reset & remove battery, go to the CMOS/BIOS setup and load default configurations; 2. "...loading windows ... screen goes black..." are you installing a fresh clean Windows or are you using an image/recovery of your old Windows. If it's an image/recovery, it is possible and very likely that the OS is no longer recognizing the motherboard as the old motherboard because of the BIOS update. Perhaps you should try a clean fresh install. 3. try booting in to a simple bootable diskette/CD of FreeDos or Dos 6.2 or variants, just to check if the motherboard will finish POST and BOOT. Post back that we can figure out other possibilities or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help to you. Good luck and kind regards.

Please give me the motherboard GIGABYTE GA-945GZM-S2 all driver for Windows 7 (chipsets, raid networks, audio drivers. serial- ATA II)

Gigabyte hasn't made available the Windows 7 drivers for the GA-945GZM-S2 as of yet. You can try to contact them and see if they will eventually provide them:

It's possible that the Vista drivers may work, but there is no guarantee on that:

If you have Vista, you can install the Vista drivers, then try to upgrade to Windows 7 from Vista. Here's a tutorial that may help:

Audio driver problem with OS vista ultimate

I have checked on Gigabyte's web site. I'm afraid that Gigabyte did not release a driver for Windows Vista for your motherboard's model.
I looked thoroughly in the download page, but couldn't find any drivers for Windows Vista.
