hey guyz this is my first post
have been a active member of this site..just never registered...
well this is my story
Yesterday my CPU was showing 3 cores...Intel Q6600
because the technician once updated the bios and i never looked at it again..
yesterday had alook at the realtemp and saw that it was showing only 3 cores.
went to cpu-z same situation..
so then searched and found out that the bios update doesnt detect 4 cores..
so had to upgrade to the latest one...
as i was updating thru @BIOS Giagbyte Utility
i choose the F9B version(beta vesion but latest..that was the only one available)
and then first it downloaded it and then it written erasing your BIOS
i though yeah ok it will first erase my bios and then install the new one
but when the ersing was complete
the computer got stuck.....
waited a few mins and then restarted it
nothin comes up on the screen i was like WTF....
since then have tried removing and placing the battery
disconnecting the HDD
starting and restarting it but no luck
so BASICALLy my mobo bios has been erased....!!!
what to do know...
btw there is a thing written on my mobo as CLR CMOS..
i know it is kind of a flash but what does it actually do??
will it solve my problem
btw called a friend(not a good techy person) he said that your cip is fried
get a new mobo....
i got if this is gone i am gone.my parents will kill me )
Note:-one reason i am thinking that the vga cable i have attached to the gou not the inbuilt one on the mobo...does it make any difference???
i could have gone for the usb reinstalling thing but the fact is that nothing comes up on the screen so no luck of booting it with a flash drive and installing it again
can my mobo be fixed or what???
Do what Pat said it sounds like same thing below but my way is the manual pain in the butt way lol.
This is for a award BIOS I believe that most gigabyte boards run award BIOS on them. I have personal used this before so I know it works (it was from a different sight that I cant find). This is a pain in the butt to do or at least I think it was but it does work and its better then buying new motherboard or trying to solder on the motherboard.
your manual should have some kind of information about it, or just look at the CD that you got with the mobo. I never had to recover a bad flash, but I know that most gigabyte mobo has an option to recover.
