Just clear the CMOS and you should be fine. drippyfausett March 20, 2009 2:06:16 AM What bios do you have. You might have to flash it. I had to and i have the same board you do mine is rev 1. Do you have revision 1 or rev. 2 of that MB? Rev. 2 requires bios FB to run pII 940 shown here http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/CPUSuppo... or for rev. 1 needs bios F6. shown here http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/CPUSuppo...
