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...;-)

Hi,

If the SATA ports are showing not installed on the BIOS then it can be due to either older BIOS version or the Ports are not detected. I recommend to update the BIOS from the emachines website, please follow the link below:

htttp:\\support.emachines.com

Select the computer model and download the BIOS
It should take care of the issue.

Thanks and regards,

I want to install a new bios for my memory but I don't find the update, my actually version is the v6.0 (7/19/06). It's a phoenix awards bios please help me :'(


Correction the bios update is for the Mainboard or motherboard for a PC. It not for the "memory"? To update your Bios you have to to know the precisely the model/brand of your mainboard before you can download the new bios file needed for the update from the manufacturer site.

There are precautions you need to heed before doing a bios update for the mainboard. In case of any eventualities or mistakes you made may render the mainboard useless!! If you are not 100% sure how to do it, get some professional help.

If you Mainboard is running ie with no errors!, it is advisable not to do the bios update unless recommended by the OEM manufacturer or you need to run a new function from the mainboard which is not included in the old bios.

Hope this helps.

I want to the bios intel motherboard d845PEBT2 place sent me


First be clear, do you want to update your BIOS & if so then go through this first: To identify your current BIOS version, check the BIOS version string:
  1. During boot, enter the BIOS setup by pressing F2.
  2. Check the Main menu.
  3. The 4-digit number after the '86A' or '86I' is the current BIOS version, as in this example: MQ96510H.86A.1663.2007.0319.1957
  4. Press Escape to exit BIOS Setup.
Important:
  • Update the BIOS on your computer only if the newer BIOS version specifically solves a problem you have. We do not recommend BIOS updates for computers that do not need it. You can view all new BIOS fixes in the Release Notes included on the BIOS download page in Download Center.
  • Before initiating a BIOS update, be sure to read and precisely follow the update instructions. You may wish to print the instructions for easy reference.
  • If a BIOS update process is interrupted, your computer may not function properly. We recommend the process be done in an environment with a steady power supply (preferably with UPS).
  • All images in the examples used in the instructions are specific to certain desktop boards and are for illustration purposes only. You need to select the correct BIOS files for your desktop board.
There are up to six methods of updating an Intel® Desktop Board BIOS to the latest version. The number of options made available for any particular board may vary, depending on drive support and BIOS update file size. You only need to use one.

All BIOS update files for Intel® Desktop Boards are available on Intel(link: http://mysearch.intel.com/corporate/default.aspx?culture=en_US&q=d845PEBT2&category=all&adv=0&value=0&searchsubmit.x=30&searchsubmit.y=12).
If simply want to clear the BIOS then either remove the small battery on the MB, wait for a couple of minutes and replace it. Else close to the BIOS chip look for a 3 pin setup on the mother boar with a jumper on two pins Remove the jumper, wait for 10-20 seconds & replace it. That will clear the BIOS.
A word of caution, do not update the BIOS if your PC is working properly. Do it when prompted to,during installing a new software or hardware this message will pop up on the screen.................sodeep

Windows Vista


hi there
There is 2 ways to do this, firstly you can create a floppy disk with the updated bios flash file on ( not recommended to a novice ) or reinstall XP and updated the bios by downloading it from the manufacturers website and installing it that way. After that you can install Vista.

good luck

Update Bios


hi stulqhi_mmxc, if you just want to update your BIOS on your laptop, you can get it here v.210 2008/6/30. You need to install also the utility that allows you to flash your BIOS, get it here. Just unzip both files, run the utility, find the BIOS file (F5RL210AS) then that's it. Make sure there are no devices connected to the computer & also make sure you don't have any BIOS update.

About the keylogger, I do recommend just installing an antivirus & running a full system scan on your computer to remove it. You can get a free one here.

Hope this helps.

Asus A8N sli Premium - sli problems


I went through your bios manual three times & did not come across a setting that gives you the option as you listed above.
What I did come across & triple checked your Manual Pg. 2-28 section 14. Asus EZ selector card connector (144-pin SLI_CON.
When using two PCIE SLI cards make sure the card is seated correctly & set for Dual Video Cards. (extreamly important).
Pg. 4-34, section 4.4.9 SLI mode Recommend kepping to Auto. Than the Bios detects the setting of theSLI selector card.
Refering to the sentance above the manual recommends all settings be set to Auto. Your Bios will do the rest. If for unknown reason you no longer have your manual you can download it from Asus. You'll need to fill in the 3 windows under, Please Select the Product.
