    Default Ep45-ds4p

    Hello,
    Right off the bat I will admit that I'm an idiot. I reformated, installed XP and used @bios everything worked fine and it asked me to reboot. Now my computer turns on for 6 sometimes 10 seconds and shuts off. Restarts and does the same thing. Does this sound like I am a proud owner of a brick? Is it revivable, does Gigabyte warrant BIOS flashing?
    Regards,
    Moron

    Hehe lol, not really your fault, @bios should be reliable.

    When your PC starts, do you get the Motherboard Post/Splash Screen? If so, use a different PC to download the latest bios and use Qflash (i think its called) to upload a bios via CD, Floppy or USB instead. The shortcut for Qflash is F8 or Del then Qflash option but it should indicating on the first screen you see when your computer turns on.

    After uploading the bios, make sure you load optimised defaults in the bios then restart and set settings, dont just set settings straight away.

    Have you cleared the cmos on the mb itself?

    - Turn off, disconnect power
    - Disconnect battery for a few secs
    - change cmos jumper to reset possition, or touch cmos pins with a screwdriver for a few secs.
    - Insert battery and turn on

    Is there a display now? If not, I guess all you can try is a different video card/connection to see if it makes a difference.
