SOURCE: how to change bios setting on GA-F2A55M-DS2 motherboard to install XP

The BIOS should not prevent you from installing Windows XP.
If your hard disk is a SATA hard drive then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

F2A55M-DS2 vista display drivers


Try downloading the latest drivers from AMD's website, found here:

http://support.amd.com/en-us/download

You can use AMD's auto detect program to find the best match.

If you're using a video card plugged into the PCI-E slot to display your graphics, I'd recommend disabling the onboard video by accessing your computers BIOS/EFI by pressing the right Function key on startup. If the graphics card you're using is AMD, the above link will also find the correct driver to use with it.

If it's a Nvidia based card, try their site for drivers, located here:

Hope this helps!

How to fix loud whine from gigabyte ga-f2a55m motherboard


This particular main board doesn't have the video integrated into the mobo, so it's got a video card. Often the video card has a fan. The fan could be causing the noise. Have you tried briefly unplugging the processor fan to see if the noise stops?

Flashed bios now computer wont run


Flashing a motherboard's BIOS can have many positive purposes and can help keep a motherboard compatible with changing technology. PCnineoneone.com says that a proper BIOS flash can introduce enhanced features and bug fixes for the motherboard. However, a bad BIOS flash can be devastating to a computer owner and very difficult to recover from. If the proper preparations are made and all instructions are followed, a bad BIOS flash can be corrected.
Remove the side panel of the computer case, using the screwdriver to unfasten the screws normally located in the back. Remove the jumper from its normal position on the motherboard and place it in the recovery position. Usually, the jumper will need to be moved over one space to cover a previously exposed prong. Locate the BIOS CMOS jumper on the motherboard, usually in the bottom, right corner. The jumper consists of three metal pins facing upward and is usually marked with "CLR_CMOS" and has a plastic cap over two of the pins. Check your specific motherboard manual if you are unsure where the jumper is. If the motherboard does not have a jumper, removing the battery for 30 seconds and then replacing it may have the same effect. Insert the BIOS flash disk and power on the computer. If you used a flash tool or utility and did not create a BIOS flash disk before flashing the BIOS, then you will need to do so using a functioning computer. Since there will be no video, listen for the internal PC speaker to beep. This means it is performing the BIOS upgrade. Power down the computer once the BIOS upgrade has been completed. This process may take some time to complete, so be sure to not turn the computer off before the BIOS upgrade is finished. Without video, the only way to be sure is to listen to the PC speaker. When the upgrade is done, the PC speaker will beep again, and the floppy disk drive will turn off. Replace the jumper back in its normal position and put the side panel of the computer back on. Power the computer on. If the computer turns on as normal, the recovery was a success. Hope this helps

PATA boot problem


Did you set the boot options to boot from the PATA drive? Did you set the port mode to legacy IDE? Did you try to let the BIOS determine the type of drive?

Bios update


Hi ber2zo,
As long as you follow the directions there should not be a problem. Gigabyte does explain how to flash & back up the bios with Introduction site.
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Utility_Model.aspx?ProductID=2427
Read the warning & get bios file here.
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/BIOS_Model.aspx?ProductID=2427
Never update a bios if the new bios file does not fix an issue.

Good Luck!
Mike

Only fans are starting - nothing else


Hi,
Have you checked the CMOS/BIOS Battery? How about reseting the BIOS jumpers?

Test the system using Motherboard with processor and 1 RAM, just connect power and screen only, switch it on. It it fails try another memory... Whether the memory, board of processor is the problem.

Fixya me when done....

Post me back if it doesn't work...
