If you backed up your old Bios replace it with the one you upgraded. if not download the correct Bios again and upgrade a second time,

remember that after you upgrade the bios you have to go into the bios settings and select something like "apply basic setting" or a similar statement, exit and reboot.

good luck & please rate my efforts

Why don't you look at the support section of the Gigabyte website? That is where you will need to go to download it anyway.

DOWNLOAD FREE DRIVERS FOR MY GIGABYTE MOTHERBOARD : GA-81865GNE-775-RH


Drivers?

Always get your drivers and specific software from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop. They are usually free of charge.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

ONN N15235 motherboard, which is a 775 socket. I am currently running a Pentium E2160 on its but its pretty slow so I bought an E5400 to replace it. When I changed the CPU over and started up my computer...


The LGA 775 processor socket doesn't matter, calderwooddu.

It's up to the motherboard chipset, and the BIOS program, and version, of what that Foxconn N15235 will support. I would go back to the Pentium Dual Core E2160, use CPU-Z from CPUID.com, (Free), and see what the motherboard chipset is, first.

(Motherboard chipset: The Northbridge, and Southbridge chips. Chip is slang for I.C. Integrated Circuit)

The Northbridge chip is what determines what Processors are supported.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_%28computing%29


Since the E2160 is built upon the 65nm technology, and the E5400 is built upon the 45nm technology, the Northbridge chip of the Foxconn N15235 may not support the E5400.

With the technology change are also Instruction Set changes. Plus other parameter changes. The BIOS program, and version on the Foxconn N15235 may not support these, either. Sorry to be a bummer.

Not a solution per se, Yet.

Need to know what computer this Foxconn mobo is out of. (MOtherBOard)
OR, if you get the computer operational again, let's use CPU-Z to see what the motherboard chipset is.
Need help in downloading, and/or installing CPU-Z, post in a Comment.

Computer does not see all ram. I have 2 of the same 512mb ram sticks it only sees one 512. If I only put in on at a time each one works but not both together. It does not show up in post or windows xp sp2...


u do need to remember that when you use 2 ram "sticks": 1. they CANNOT BE putted in slots directly next to each other. leave slot between them free. 2.they need to be exact same frequency and type [ddr1 or 2 or 3] and they both must have or not error connection on as if bios program upgrade utility is damaged do not try to upgrade bios as u may damage your motherboard beafore u try with 1gb stick refer to otherboard manual for ddr type and momory frequency

I have an IBM thinkcentre m51 that I am trying to upgrade to a dual core processor. It seems that it won't take it. Is there a setting on the bios that will allow the motherboard to support a dual core...


Most major manufactures use motherboard designed to their specs and upgrades to the processor are limited. You can use software such as Belarc Advisor, to determine what motherboard you have and then you can search the net to determine what processors are compatible with it.
