GA-970A-D3 boot stuck on looping

well today i booted up my pc and then my pc was just stuck loading on " Begin to update backup bios to latest version
writing bios image............" I have never ever touched the bios on this pc when got it in 6 weeks (gigabyte GA-970A-D3)

though after 9 hours of research i found this

You can kick in the backup BIOS by shutting down the PSU from the wall, then hold down your case power button in and then turn on the power supply button, a few seconds later the board will start, shut off the power supply then. Then you can turn on the power supply again and power up the board normally and DualBIOS will kick in.

so after booting back it finally said "Loading Operating System ". After than I took off (Unplugged) my pc for 2 mins and then i rebooted and the problem is gone ( I hope )

Now my question are there anything that i have to do now since i got it working again like e.g. make another copy of a backup bios or something like that ?

  1. Can u reset the BIOS?
    Reset the CMOS memory the right way as is described in the motherboard manual using the clear CMOS link with the power cord unplugged.

    How To Clear CMOS @ The DDR3-1333 vs DDR3-1600 will shave-off ~10 minutes on a ~2 hour render.

  2. nevermind it started to do the samething all over
  3. I'm having the same issue. By any chance have you come across a working fix yet?
