    Default GIGABYE GA-M57SLI-S4 Version 2 issues with booting into vista and more

    Hello there. About 3 months ago i bought the GIGABYE GA-M57SLI-S4 version 2.0 board runing bios verison: FG. the cpu is a amd 9750 x4 runs at 2.4ghz. 2 gigs of dual channel ocz ddr2 800mhz ram, 750 gig samsung hd, 256mb evga 8600gts and a samsung dvd bruner. The computer is runing vista uiltamate 64 bit.

    My issue is my computer will no longer boot into window. Will also no longer boot a bootable cd or memory stick. I have changed the ram, the dvd drive. I have loaded the bios defalts still no difrence. I have removed the battery from the mobo and still no difrence. I think my board is toast may need to do a rma.

    so any ideas why my board will not boot to any thing. my power suply is a ultra 550 watt.

    i hope you guys can help

    thanks so much

    Ian

    You have to update your bios to FI, as indicated by Gigabyte at the CPU support site.

    Hello there. thanks for the addvice. but that didnt slove my problem

    truns out that my amd 9750 cpu went bad. i broke down and bought a brand new bio star board that is am2+ with the nvidia 8200 chipset and i put that cpu in and the computer would trun on but show no video or it would show video and than freez during post. so i bought a used amd 3800+ and put it in both motherboards and the computer starts up and runs fine no issues. been runing the 3800 on the biostar board for a week now and no issues. so i contacted amd and they said sounds like a bad cpu so i had to pay to ship the chip via ups to amd in usa and i live in cananda which costed a arm and a leg. that kind ticked me off having to pay for shipping to amd for hgih end amd chip thats only 3 months old. i hope it dont take much longer for a new one to come in. its been 6 bussness days snice i shiped it off to them.

    so yea the problem agian was a bad cpu.

    Bad CPU twice in your lifetime, I dont think that is the issue

    If you are still having the above issue in your first post you have a bad bootblock in your BIOS and need to RMA the board if you still can

    WOW!

    So you did get two bad ones in a row? Shame on AMD.... Or maybe the store gave you the bad one back the first time?
