    Hi, I just register in this forum I have a problem on my gigabyte GA-EP45T-EXTREME I use the q-flash to update my bios on the post screen.

    Everything seemed to update smoothly but after I restart it stays in an infinite cycle it doesn't even reach the post screen, the mobo has a dual-bios but it doesn't seem to kick(shouldn't it be auto) in is there any way I can manual set it to start with the old bios version?

    Hope anyone can help me.

    Sincerely
    ArthurM

    burn the files to a cd then try with that... or usb.. the original files not the bad mod.

    I had a bad flash, possibly the bios was built incorrectly by the modder. It would keep doing the 2 light beeps and not post! I tried the usb/ cd trick no dice as it wasn’t even getting past the point of turning on the cpu fan even! No ram would bring the loud beeps for no ram. Using another video card made no difference. Cleared CMOS, same issue.

    Fixed it by reading someone’s post on another gigabyte board.
    You boot the board and short the pins on the bios chip with a flat screwdriver near the usb/front buttons/led’s header. One says B Bios, one says M bios, short the one called M bios. I did it a few times on both sides until the board would shut down and reboot. After maybe 3 times, it beeped normally and posted with the older bios!

    Tyvm LatinMcG I was able after half a hundred times to force the b_bios to be loaded into the M_bios using that process you mention with the screw.

    Was able to revert and update a new bios version(stable the one I had was beta) into my mobo.

    Thank you for your help and expertise.

    Sincerely

    i knew it would work.. i had to do it once on my G31M-ES2L rev 1.x for it to load the Backup bios into the Main bios.. i had flashed a Mac OSX bios mod
