i hanen't tried it yet...I'm assuming I could. I went back into Gigabyte's website and found an update for the BIOS regarding 'memory compatibility issues'. I'm reluctant in updating the BIOS because there is that slim chance the flashing could go wrong.
I also noticed Gigabyte does have a few Intel updates and an Intel embedded graphics update ( non BIOS related) so I will have to try those 2 first before committing to Flashing the BIOS.
But good point, if I can boot into SAFE MODE, it could prove it is more than likely a Graphics issue inside Intel ( since Intel now does the graphics in the chip now)
More to follow on Tuesday, as the computer is an office computer. I will keep you posted
