Question about Gigabyte Computers & Internet
HOLD del key even before you start your computer, then you start your computer.
If that doesn't help, open your computer and clear CMOS on motherboard, find jumper called clear cmos, but first un-plug Power or turn it off (put switch to 0), then put jumper in clear CMOS for couple of seconds, then try turning it on, ..
If one slot doesn't work, I suggest you try free program: memtest86 ! IT will show you if you have slot or memory problem.
If none from above helps, put one memory out, then try, then put another in, and other out and try.
Hope it helps.

Any 184-pin ddr ram should work on this. You can actually use pc3200 (ddr 400) ram as well. Pc2700 ram is ddr333, and a higher speed ddr ram like pc3200 will work just as well if not better than pc2700, it will simply go down to the speed that the processor requests the ram run at. It's all backwards compatible, faster ram can run slower if the computer needs it to run at the slower speed. Depending on the price you can find as long as you get 184 pin ddr ram either pc2700 or pc3200 with work fine with your motherboard. Peter

Hey me too. Just bought a sata drive. I have the same mobo (AK86-L), and now the same problem. Updated the bios and SATA is enabled. Updated the driver. Tried both sata 1 and sata 2 connections on the mobo. It will not recognize the drive although it picks up that something is connected to the mobo. Its a WD Caviar 500 GB drive. Anyone have any thoughts?

SOURCE: BIOS problem!!
Why do you want to overclock it? Have you changed the cooling system? Overclocking might fry your processor if the cooling cannot keep up with the heat. Does your motherboard support overclocking? The option might be locked. There might be a jumper on the board that you have to mingle in order to enable that setting.

Under normal circumstances you do not need to boot into a drive to flash your BIOS. Normally you would take a dos boot floppy and the latest BIOS firmware and put them on a floppy, which is then inserted into the floppy drive before turning the computer on, and if the bios boot priority is set to boot from floppy before the harddrive, it will ask to boot from the floppy, which allows you to flash the bios from a command line or text graphical interface.
*Note that you may be able to use a cd, but floppy is the oldschool way - if you could boot into an operating system you could use the modern methods which flash the bios while running an OS.
Your board comes with Q-Flash in the BIOS, which means you are able to log into the bios and flash it using this utility and by putting the BIOS firmware on a floppy and inserting it into the computer.
Please see Here for instructions and Here for the latest firmware.
If you cannot access the BIOS, meaning the BIOS is completely bricked, then you will need to buy a new motherboard. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a BIOS which is completely bricked.

you may not have to format
you should be okay
are you sure power supply is not going
remove cd drive and boot see if you can get to safemode
Are you sure you have'nt had pc opened and maybe loosened a memory
I still don't think it's the motherboard.I would go more for a memory or power supply problem
let me know
