    So everything ok now then? Hope so, if not let us know.

    So hey, you using the UD4P final F9 right? How is it? I'll likely wait and use F10 beta's because I rarely run the Finals myself

    If you want to go back to F8e you will need to reflash it, please read the first page of this thread if there is anything you are still unsure about. Or just ask us.
    I did Load Optimized defaults after I updated the BIOS. I did not OC, I just enabled the USB keyboard and mouse and disabled the Logo.
    When I turned my PC on, it just happened.
    Does it mean my primary BIOS is dead?

    No, that still does not mean your BIOS is dead. Sounds like you are not setting your BIOS Right. Auto/Defaults are not always right and really not suggested by me.

    Please make a thread with your Full specs and I can help. Likely you are just not setting up your memory right if you are not overclocking. Simple fix likely,

    Strange,Biosman states not to include the autoexec.bat file with the new bios file.Even while using Qflash.Yet Gigabyte includes it with the file!Whats up with that???

    It is not required for Qflash, only for DOS based flashes and that is why Gigabyte includes it.

    If you are using Qflash, all you need is the actual BIOS file (filename.Fxx)

    Glad you found it helpful!

    How did this help you update your Radeon BIOS, this is for motherboard BIOS updates? Or did you mean a motherboard BIOS update fixed your Graphic card issues? If so great to hear it, and glad you found this post useful.

    Post back anytime if you have any questions

    Hi, i did the flashing with my usb stick but i ran into a little problem.

    The update seemed successful at first when i notice some small changes in my bios, but when i tried to boot it would get to the desktop and a few seconds later my computer would reset. I had already given the ram the amount of voltage it needed but still nothing, so i bumped up the vcore to about 1.42 and it finally worked. Should i be worried that it wouldnt boot on default settings?

    This is my motherboard GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-MA770-UD3 (rev. 2.0)

    I used the FD bios.

    I appreciate your effort in this guide, i tried reading other ones but they were really confusing.

    Did you load and apply optimized defaults after you flashed, then save and apply and reboot, then make your changes? If not that may be why, you must do that.

    As for your voltages, sorry I am not sure at all about AMD CPU voltages.

    Yes, and i also optimized before i flashed just to be on the safe side. Could it be that this new bios version just simply require more power to the cpu? i didnt try to bump the voltage a bit i just went straight for the 1.42 mark cause thats what i OC at.
