Hello,

In the past i updated my bios because i was getting bsod's due to my amd fx 8120 cpu being incompatible with my current version of my Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 Motherboard.

I flashed my bios to update version F8E. It stopped all my bsod issues but, after a while, i tried downloading AMDs 13.1 video card driver for my raedeon 6850 crossfire cards and i got a bsod during installation. I read somewhere that this had to do with my bios version so i decided to check the Gigabyte site for updates.

Very foolishly, i flashed my bios without saving my other version and now every time i try to start my comp, I get as far as the windows loading screen before a BSOD appears for a split second then my computer restarts.
I searched the Gigabyte site thoroughly and i just cannot seem to find my old version that actually worked, i've tried 3 different versions and they all seem to do the same thing.

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or these versions are just not the ones that are suitable for my comp. I have no idea how to get my computer working anymore and i need your help people, thank you in advance.

Here are my specs :

8 Gigs of RAM
Cpu : Amd fx 8120 8 core
Graphics cards : raedeon 6850 crossfire
Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-970A-D3

Hi, Check the SATA setting in BIOS. If AHCI, set it to IDE. If IDE, switch to AHCI.

I tried what you said, and it seems like there's no more BSOD but the loading screen just freezes then restarts my computer anyways.

Weird. Try clearing the CMOS (unplug the power cord then remove the CMOS battery for few minutes). Then check the SATA setting again.
