    if there is no bios on your pc,then you should not be able to see the post screen...because the bios did the post test
    check for the bios jumper..clear cmos..load for optimal seting or failsafe setting first

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.

Put just the ram back into the motherboard, the pc will not boot without processor, ram and graphics pluged into the board, check this, if it will still not boot and you still get 3 beeps its a memory(ram) problem, and you will need to replace the memory stick.

Wont accept bios update that was sent from packard bell after total failure keeps asking for bios file. also clear cmos feature on board three pins one with white square which i assume is pin 1 but header...


Ga-8SIML is a generic gigabyte mobo and does not need a packard bell bios. you could goto the gigabyte site and get latest from there. If your PB displays a logo at the start then its likely that you will lose that logo as the generic bios will not know it was fitted to a PB machine but thats no hardship.
Be sure to check the board version. version 1.0 takes one type of bios ver 3.2 another and they wont load into the wrong versions of the board. F12 is the latest non beta. I just did two of these recently so i know F12 is ok.
suggest you visit gigabyte site anyway just to check how the bios should be blasted and which version supports which mobo model no..

GA-8SIML will not post or boot. Removed all PCI


Hi,

Firstly you check your RAM by use another RAM and then check it is working or not, after that if display is not coming then check your processor it is fitted properly or not if it have fitted and display is not coming then *********** board's winbond chip have been damaged.

Repair it from a techinician.

Secondary IDE channel not working...


have you tried flashing the BIOS version? I don't know if this is just a problem out of the blue, or you just got the motherboard and it's always been like this. I know usually the manufacturer releases new version for the BIOS and you can use a flash utility to upgrade it and it could fix the problem. Have you tried using another operating system to see if it works in Linux (Ubuntu)? If it works in Linux, then you know it's a windows related problem. If it doesn't work there, then it's probably the BIOS version is outdated.

My motherboard can;t detect my harddisk.....


Hi modjoguy, the bios must see your SATA hard disk before windows can see your SATA hard disk drive. To check this please press the delete key every two seconds as soon as you power on the system. (Note 1: Some motherboards that do not show the SATA II drive while in the bios may need its jumper set to SATA I in order for the bios to see the SATA drive). (See the drives large white sticker on the hard disk drive for SATA I location of jumper).
(Note 2: Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M rev 2.x & Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M-RH motherboards use the same manual). The Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M rev 1.x manual is slightly different, thus page numbers differ from the other two above.
Here is the link for all three: http://www.giga-byte.com/Search/Search_List.aspx?Keyword=K8VM800M&SearchType=Spec
The bios main menu will open. Open your manual (rev2.0 & RH) to page 38 & read under the listing, "IDE Channel 2/3 Master". The idea is your SATA drives should be listed at 2/3.
Once they are seen you need to open Advanced BIOS Features page 40. You can load the advanced bios features by pressing "Ctrl+F1" keys. You must list the SATA drive you want as the primary hard disk drive (Usually its the model number of the drive), that will have windows installed on it.

Good luck modjoguy!
Run into a snag just post it here.
