    Default help!bios problem!

    hi all.i need some help 2004 i bought i pc with gigabyte mobo(8ik1100).
    ga-8ik1100 rev2 .(at the begining i did know that it was rev 1 too)
    cpu p4 2.8 ht
    2*512 seitec ddr 400 pc3200
    liberty power 400 W
    sata raid controler at pci
    ge force 6600 gt 256 ddr3

    mobo it cames with fa bios version.but...i had problems with the serial ata devices so i gave back the mobo for update and when i took it back..when i open it it was with f8.i didn't that this was strange...all was fine.before 3 days i update it my self to f13...and after that i tryed to install 2 more 512. kingston 512 ddr 400.the 4 rams at slots 1-4 , 2-5.(dual chanel cpu->enable).so i open the found 2 giga ram but...when cames the screen welcome(at windows) it's restarts again and i make some test.
    it was working with 3 rams!! all fine
    it was working with 2 rams!! one kingston one seitec (i made this test cause maybe rams don't synchronised)
    so i started to search the internet and i found that at the gigabyte site 8ik1100 rev2 mobo says :question-> When installed 4 dimms of DDR400 memory, system became unstable.
    Please update bios to ver Fbc or later.
    then i learn that is 2 similiar mobos rev 1 rev 2. and the rev 2 has similiar bios to my first fA .. so i look at the bottom of mobo and it says REV 2
    ...i am supposed to have fj and NOT f8 or f13 bios... :(
    i didn't know that...and after update to the f13 when i going to bios->freq voltage control cpu is at 1.4625v but some time from it self is at 1.08v
    when i tryed to install the fA or f J bios when it loads the file says -> BIOS ID CHECK ERROR
    i must install the rev 2 bios back!!!!
    sorry for my english... :(
    and i hope someone can help me.i really need some help

    Do you have the BIOS you need for Rev 2? How are you trying to flash? In DOS or does your board have a Qflash program you can load from the BIOS With the F8 key?

    If you are using a windows based flash program, meaning within windows while it is running then that may by why it errors. I would use DOS. I posted Guide on how to flash here, maybe it can help you more >>>

    Here is ALL the BIOS's for your board Rev. 2 >>>
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-8IK1100 (Rev 2.x)

    If you do not get it flashed, I would send it back and tell them they put in the wrong one
