    When did you buy it, and was it bought new? Where you bought it does not matter so much as to if it was new and how long ago. If it was new, and under 3 years then you can RMA it
    Hi lsdmesap,

    I have used the same tools as darkantrax07 to change the bios logo and know have the same issue as he does. You said in your post that pin shorting only would help if you had a dual physical bios chip. Well a have a gigabyte p35-dq6 MB and it should support the dual bios thing. I already tried to clear the cmos without any luck. I'am sill left with blank screen and start up. Computer starts up and firtsly you see the hdd leds going on after this the machine beeps 1 time and after this nothing happens.
    Does this mean the MB is fried?

    Hope somebody can help me out. Thanks.

    Have already read it. But I wonder if it works because my pc doenst boot up. My first boot device is not the floppy, does this matter?
    And if so I could also try it with a USB stick, but I wonder if it works, and its hard to know if something is happening when you got no image.
    Should I try it with USB stick or a floppy? Thanks.

    Thanks for your help. I will try to solve this with the support at gigabyte and see what comes forth out of it. If nothing helps I maybe need to buy a new MB. Thanks again.

    Same here. Face Wizard gave several errors. Then I wanted to reboot but all I got is a blank screen and the sound of fans and nothing more. Even the lights on the keyboard did not turn on.
    I removed and installed the battery but this did not help.
    I don't have a floppy drive.
    Mother is Gigabyte GA-94PL-S3P

    What can I do to make the pc work again?

    Turn off your system AND the psu switch at the back of your system, then unplug the power supply from the wall socket.
    Remove the mobo battery AND place a jumper block on the motherboard's CLR_CMOS pins.
    Let your system sit like this overnight or for 24 hours, longer is better.

    You might be able to perform a blind flash using a cd/dvd, bootable usb drive or a differenct hard drive.
    Your new boot drive would need to be dos formatted using fat 16 or fat 32.
    The new autoexec.bat file would need to automatically run the flash program, and have the correct bios file name and options.
    You would need to temporarily disconnect your current hard drive.

    http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ash-guide.html should have more information.
    Doing a forum or web search using: blind flash should provide more information.

    Good Luck!

    Mother is Gigabyte GA-94PL-S3P
    "GA-94PL-S3P" motherboard is not found on the Gigabyte.com website.
    There are 10 motherboard models that start with "GA-945".
    Please double check your motherboard's model number and post the correct model and version numbers.
