    I was having trouble with my motherboard so I updated the bios. This caused more problems so I changed the bios back, loaded fail-safe default bios and now it won't post. I get a long beep followed by three short beeps. The manual says this has something with the keyboard, but I tried both a usb and a ps2 keyboard with no change. I reset the CMOS and that didn't help. I used @bios, which I know now may have been a mistake from reading your great post here. My motherboard (GA-MA770-DS3) is supposed to have "virtual dual bios", but I can't find any directions on how to use this feature. I don't have a floppy drive on this computer and couldn't get to it if I had. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

    Don't ever use fail safe, there is no reason to ever need this.

    Please clear your CMOS using the long method as mentioned on page one, post #2. Then load optimized defaults and save/apply/reboot. If you cannot clear your CMOS using that method, then you may have to either short your board or send it in for RMA and add your board to the list of ones killed by @BIOS. You can also try shutting your power supply on/off really quick many times, while trying to turn the board on. Sometimes that will get it going so you can recover. You may also try removing all your memory but one stick and then start it, or put in a different stick then try again.

    Dual BIOS is not something you can access, it is done automatically by the board if something fails, unless you use @BIOS and things go wrong such as this.

    So I've flashed bios many times in the past.. however I flashed last night sucessfully.. there was some checksum 0f00 thing that popped up when it asked me if i "really" wanted to flash. It seems to work fine now.. says F5 and i had to manually re-enter all my bios settings.

    set up raid and off I went.

    Here at work (laughs@work) I was reading your post about flashing for some reason and I saw the part that you should "load optimized defaults" following the flash.

    I didn't do that.

    Essential? If everything is working right now should I do it when I get home?

    That is normal, explained on page one. Sorry the images are down for this guide, they will be back up on the 10th.

    Yes, optimized defaults is essential. Please do this when you get home, then save/apply/reboot F10 BACK to the BIOS. You must go immediately back to the BIOS before windows, so you can set your RAID settings again otherwise you will corrupt your array.

    Thank you for a timely response. You're a great asset to this bulletin board and the gigabyte community.

    I will go home and follow your recommendation.. it can't hurt.

    I did experience a freeze up this morning when i booted into windows.. it just hung forever.. the mouse unfroze for a min then back to life then solid freeze.. i rebooted and everything was fine.. hopefully this will solve that. (i'm banking that I forgot a sata ahci setting or something.)

    Thanks for your support! I try my best to help as much as possible, when I can.

    It is suggested for sure, Gigabyte even reminds you in red test on the BIOS download pages.

    Be sure you do what I said above in regards to your RAID array, there is an image on page one that should still be visible for steps to safely flash with RAID.

    Freezes could be anything, drivers, programs, or BIOS settings which I can help you with later if you need it.

    I format my usb flash thumbdrive as fat, then load the bin file onto it. but after reboot cannot recognize the drive? any clues?

    The only way last time was to update in bios qflash is with an external flsah drive that i formatted to fat but since then it is formatted back to ntfs and is nearly full.

    thanks

    Is USB Storage Function in Integrated Peripherals enabled?
