My pc doesn't want to boot up. this happend after i updated my bios. what might be the priblem & what's the solution?

> this happened after I updated [the] BIOS

After the 'flashing', did you enter BIOS SETUP, and then use 'Load BIOS Defaults' ?

After that, did you use 'AUTO DETECT DISK DRIVES' ?
If so, were your disk-drive and your CD-drive detected properly?

Hopefully, you updated with the correct BIOS that is specific to exactly your motherboard.

Some motherboards have the capability to 'flash' the BIOS even when a recent BIOS-update did not fully complete -- check the manual that came with the motherboard for the exact key-sequence to activate this 'emergency' BIOS-update.

If you can remove the BIOS chip from the motherboard, and you have your own EEPROM 'writer', you can update the chip while it's mounted on this EEPROM 'writer', and then re-install the BIOS chip onto the motherboard.

BIOS flashing problem. Latest BIOS from Biostar site is on flash drive, F12 during POST opens the flash screen, file is selected; but then the process hangs at blinking message "Reading file, please wait",...

If I am right, writing Bios files isn't possible with your Motherboard Bios Flash Memory. I've done updating bios on many motherboards, but most of them can't be written, when I contact the manufacturers, they only say that I must have done something wrong, following the instructions, but with the same instructions and procedures, it worked on some motherboards. Not all motherboards support flashing bios, since some bus and flash memory are faster and some are not. Sometimes your pendrive (flash drive) creates this problem, so I would suggest you to use another flash drive. I hope you did format the flash drive before you write the Bios updates files, if not, you should do it and you have to write the files on an empty drive.
(This isn't a solution, only an assistance, if this doesn't help, you can still ask for another expert's help)

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My Gigabyte 8i945pl-g motherboard has stopped connecting to the SATA drives. I updated to F8 bios and have tried all the bios settings for PATA/SATA connection. The drives operate OK in another computer....

Hi thanks for your question.
I would suggest to-
1. Set BIOS to default. 2. Check the cable that drive is connected with (use know good cable) 3. Try and use different socket on motherboard (if you have one)
If all of this fails I'm afraid this may mean that your motherboard has developed a fault. Best of luck!

I want to update bios for intel d101ggc motherboard


There should be serious reason if you decided to update your motherboard's BIOS. Intel (or other motherboard vendor) doesn't suggest you to do that, if it's not necessary. However it's up to you to take all the risk.
Here's the link from Intel site:

Good Luck.

I have Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG, DMI verrsion : BIOS supports minimum version 2.2. Latest is version 2.3, kindly suggest me where should i get upgrade for the bios.

My suggestion would be to not look for the specific bios version to update, but to go to the motherboard's (if you have a custom built), or computer manufacturer's (for pre-built models like Dell or HP) website.
Most of these sites have extensive support sections that list the most current BIOS updates and drivers for the motherboard chipset.
This method is also a little safer, because the last think you want to do is update (flash) your BIOS with an update that is incompatible/not tested to work with your motherboard.
Hope this helps!

I'm fixing a machine that wont boot. driver detective is an obvious waste of time to me. i just want THE driver.drv or .zip. this is on a gigabyte motherboard. the drive died as result trojan. cant boot,...

For drivers, go to Gigabyte's Download Center:

If that doesn't work, you can manually download any/all drivers from here:

But, if this computer, which once recognized this drive, no longer 'sees' the drive - especially in the bios, you have a bigger problem.

First I would mount this drive as a second 'slave' drive on another computer. If it's not seen there either, you have a dead HD.

Otherwise I might try reflashing the Bios with the latest update to see if the drive is 'seen' afterwards. If not, it's starting to look like motherboard problems.

Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 installation problems

Hi speedfreak44, during the installation of windows one of the drivers did not install correctly & windows registry is messed up.
The blue screen is a typical response from windows. Even though you're windows installed SP2, there are another 89+ updates for SP2. (A reinstall with-out a format is not advised).
Suggest you enter you're bios & disable ACPI. This one I know for sure will show up in windows device manager as a PCI device with no name. Try again to boot windows. If it still fails to enter in standard mode than a complete re-install will be required including a format. Personally I do not use windows XP pro/home w/SP2 CD to perform the format, (After receiving a blue screen).
I have found it is 98% better to use the software tools, downloaded from the Mfg's web site for you're hard drive. Use the bootable software (On a floppy or CD), to format you're hard drive. Most Mfg's hard drive software will allow you to change the cluster size up. Windows standard uses a 4kb cluster size & you loose far more hard drive space. With a 16kb you loose only the file allocation or FAT, which is normal.
Than using the Win XP CD/SP2 install windows, clean.
(No need to format).
When finished installing windows, load the Gigabyte driver CD & install the chipset & other CD drivers. Turn on windows firewall & update windows SP2. (ASAP), (Save SP3 update for later).
It is in the updates of windows to iron out software & hardware driver updates. Do not install you're antivirus software until windows has finished updating its self & you install any hardware updates also through windows update. (Continue to leave the ACPI disabled in bios until updating is complete).
You can enable ACPI, antivirus software & printer software all.

You will find some needed software will install during windows update. Like; Quad Core processor update. With either home edition or pro it is advised to install .Net framework updates 1 at a time & only restart when prompted by windows. Other wise click the refresh button & continue windows updating. (You can save the .Net framework updates for last if you wish). You're video card may need .Net framework 2.0 or better for installation.
I am hell bent on installing windows once & correctly the first time. I understand you want to get this baby up & running but take the time & run the hard drive tools/utilities. (It's worth it)!

Good Luck speedfreak44!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Please let me know if this got you're system running without the blue screens?
One last item. It's also worth checking the dates on the Gigabyte CD to Gigabyte's web site before installing other drivers. Including the chipset drivers. You want to install the newest drivers the first time around. Here is the link to you're Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard main web site.
