Hello,
I was just looking at my desktop and I got a blue screen. After restarting, a Gigabyte bios window popped up asking if I want to restore default settings or enter the bios. I chose to enter the bios. The first time, the bios did not load, I only got a blank blue screen with the mouse icon in middle--unmovable. Each time I restart the computer and try to get into the bios I get one of these two problems:
1) The Bios appears to boot up but I am unable to move the mouse or use the keyboard (Ive tried different USB slots.
2) The bios comes up as a scrambled screen with different parts of the screen missing, or just blue squares.

I am able to boot into windows normally; however, I would like to enter the Bios so that I can reapply my overclock, etc. The first thing that comes to mind is to update my stock bios version. I am running Windows 7 64-bit, and I am unable to run any OS side bios updates. Can someone give me the steps to updating/flashing my bios without entering the bios (since I cant?)

*UPDATE*
I managed to install the F16 BIOS version through @BIOS. I am still unable to access my system BIOS! The following is all I get when I boot up pressing "Del":

    Why don't you pull the cmos battery and wait a minute or two and stick it back in.
    Power up and since you have a dual bios one of them should come up.
    It's very important to know what mobo revision you have before flashing the bios.
    That model has 3 versions.
  4. trying test you memory sticks by removing one,one leave in palce.and then another one see if it helps.
