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

No, there is not. You MUST insert a working battery; otherwise, the computer will not work and the BIOS will not update.

The BIOS has been erased, I do not have floppy, but i want to write the bios


In order to write a BIOS, you would have to have acess to very expensive equipment as well as be amazingly good at whatever programming language they use to write BIOS (something like Assemly or some other hardware-level language). In short, you can't do it.
See the motherboard drivers section for a listing of computer motherboard manufacturer driver and BIOS update pages or our support section for computer manufactures.
Unlike earlier computers that date before 1996, new computers have a Flash BIOS which enables users to update the BIOS chip on motherboard using a software program. These programs have the capability of correcting issues that may be occurring with your computer hardware. These issues can include, but are not limited to, the below corrections.
  • Add the capability of adding new hardware into the computer.
  • Additional options or corrections to the BIOS setup screen.
  • Correcting issues with incompatibility with hardware.
  • Update hardware capacity and capabilities.
  • Missing information or instructions.
  • Update a startup logo.
Older computers who need an update for the Year 2000 issue

Only obtain the BIOS update from the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer, unless the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer is no longer in business.

Do not shut off or reboot the computer until the BIOS instructs you to do so.

Verify that the BIOS you have been instructed to use or the one that you are downloading will resolve the issue you are attempting to fix. Remember that BIOS updates will only fix hardware issues and will not fix software issues, unless that software is directly related to the hardware.

Verify the BIOS version and make sure that the BIOS update you plan on using is the next version. For example, if your BIOS is 1.0a, and the manufacturer has 1.0b, 1.0c, 1.0d, etc. You should be updating to 1.0b. If you need 1.0d, update to 1.0b, 1.0c and then 1.0d unless otherwise instructed by your computer or motherboard manufacturer.

Verify that the computer has been scanned for viruses, viruses that may reside in the write-able portion of the BIOS may cause the BIOS to abort or fail, possibly causing the computer to encounter additional issues.

If you are updating a laptop or portable computers BIOS ensure that it has AC power and is not running off the battery.

Finally, when upgrading a BIOS, it is important that your read the disclaimer and any other information or instructions included with the download. Many computer manufactures will not support a BIOS if done by the user of the computer without the instructions of a technician or company representative. If the BIOS causes any difficulty with the computer you may be held responsible.

How do I download a BIOS update without a working computer?

If you are unable to get to the Internet in order to download a BIOS update we suggest downloading and creating a BIOS diskette on a different computer. For example, a friends computer or a computer at your work.

Hi,

Your not going to be able to update the BIOS without having XP installed on the computer.
I had the same problem myself as a motherboard i had would not update with Win 7 installed.
If you have a spare hard drive and an XP install disk then i recommend installing XP on that and then download the exe BIOS update file and run it from within Windows to update the BIOS.
After that just turn the PC off, put back your Win 7 hard drive and your good to go.


Regards.

I was given an L500. It powers but fails to POST, this happened after a recommended BIOS update. Any kind of debug ports or something to sort this out?


After a BIOS update, if it fails to post, the BIOS update got corrupted. This happens (rarely) and when it does, the only thing that can be done is to remove the BIOS chip and have it burned at a local repair shop (or sent into Toshiba for a replacement). Without the BIOS functioning properly, the computer can do nothing at all. If your BIOS is not on a removable chip, then the computer will have to be sent to Toshiba to have the BIOS replaced.

After installing 2 EVGA geForcw 7600GT graphic cards and srtting bios for dual card, only one card recognized. I believe it's a bios problem but am having toubles getting upate.


I suspect you are using Windows Vista. Apparently, even though the motherboard was marketted as "Vista-ready", it wasn't quite ready. Numerous people have reported no problems with a single video card, but an inability to get two to work.

I could not find any reports to confirm what I suspect to be a solution. However, here it is: A BIOS update (shudder) may be inevitable. Don't panic! First, give driver updates a try. You might get lucky. You never know. The driver's are available direct from the manufacturer at this link: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N-E SLI

I further suspect the problem has something to do with the fact that a single card going into either PCI-E 16x slot runs at 16x (duh!), but that two of the same only run at 8x (huh?). This fact could have been easily overlooked with adjusting timing in the drivers specific to vista and is exactly why I suspect a driver update may be a possible fix.
