    Yesterday, Gigabyte released F10 final bios, wich claims to fix the S3 issue.

    Yes, it is supposed to be released for all other models on 9/25. Sorry I missed sending you a email, did you indeed test the one you see posted? And does it work?

    If so, they will port it to all models, as they do believe it is fixed now

    Anyone who wishes to test, it is posted on the .tw site >>>
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-EP45-DS3R (rev. 1.0)

    Anyone who tests this please report back if it works for you or not and either way what amount of ram or tests you done.

    Thanks

    Thank you very much for the Beta BIOS F10. I just arrived home and flashed the new BIOS. It seems to run perfect stable now, even after S3 Sleep. Of course to be sure about stability, I need more time to gain confidence. But so far it really looks perfect. This test has been done on Vista x64 and 4x1GB RAM.

    The BIOS F10 for GA-EP45-DS3R from the Gigabyte website is the same (bitidentical) as the one you sent me Lsdmeasap, so I do not need to retest that.

    Thank you very much again, Lsdmeasap, for all the help with this.

    Nice to hear! That is the final I just said Beta (Ya know incase it didn't work, it would not hurt so much ), and is now available above at the .tw URL

    They will be making all other models available on 9/25. I will pass on your results tonight.

    Hopefully all other models will be fixed as well, the same BIOS will be ported to all models >>>
    P45/P43 models except P45-DQ6/DS5/DS4/DS4P/Extreme/TExtreme

    See everyone tonight, I am going to get my P45 installed this evening, hopefully.

    Sorry again Mxcrowe, I feel really bad!! I see you posted this afternoon, so I hope you are OK!!!

    I'm glad to hear it's working for some of you, but for me the new F10 bios hasn't resolved it yet. I immediately get a BSOD.

    I will do some more testing later this evening. Since I haven't been able to use the "Sleep" function, I've been using DES Advance and it's pretty buggy software to begin with so I will uninstall it later to see if it's causing conflicts with the sleep function.

    Really happy to see that Gigabyte appears to have come up with a fix, and in any case, at least they are clearly addressing the issue and I'm sure it will be fixed across the board (pardon the pun) soon! We all owe LSD a debt of gratitude for his tireless patience, not only with posters here, but with Gigabyte. Thanks for keeping this on their radar, L!!
    And don't worry about sending me the DS3R BIOS...once I saw it was for that flavor of board, I didn't flash with it. Just grateful that you took the time to keep me posted on the progress.

    Has anyone had success with 2x2GB (or 4x2GB) yet?

    I've been stable for over an hour after resuming from sleep with

    GA-EP45-DS3R Vista x64 SP1 2x2GB

    I've usually had BSOD within 30mins, so I think I'm good, too.
