hii all , i assembled my pc, 6 months back and now its not working properly ,
. it shuts down automatically sometime after 4 hours , sometime even less , i did everything to get the solution , even got a new cpu cooler (just thought its getting shut because of overheating), got a new psu (seasonic ss620w) , but stiil no solution and atlast i got to know somehow that my BIOS is curropted . so i need to update it and i never did it before , please guide me how to update the windows for gigabyte b85m-d3h .
my current configuration is-

intel i5 4670 , gigabyte b85m-d3h , corsair vengance 4gb ram , 1tb hdd ,seasonic ss620w , cooler master tx3 evo.

hold on I went and looked at your board at gigabyte and there are 2 revisions did you get the right one for you ?? this is important you said that my current bios version shows F5 funny that there is only one bios listed for each revision of this board ... so you need to make dang sure witch revision you got and get the correct bios download.....

rev 1

that may have depended on your hard drive setting in the bios there's ahci, ide and raid if when you updated the bios and it changed that you may have to change it back... if the drive was set up for ide and the bios setting is achi it won't boot or vice versa. a fresh install should be fine but remember what the hard drive setting is for next time something comes up.. hope it all stays god for you from here on out ..

ya, bios update will put it all back to its default settings-- keep track of your updates, programs and drivers you install on that fresh install if you add something and the bsods start one of them may be the blame
