    Update using DOS and FlashSPI and you will be fine.

    You can create a USB DOS Bootable stick using the method I outline in this thread

    Sorry, you will need to use the flash program that comes with your BIOS downloads, so if that is Flash895 then use that.

    Did you try >>>
    flash895.exe G31MS2L.F5

    If so and no luck try this, rename the file to G31MS2L.bin and then try
    flash895.exe G31MS2L.bin

    About FlashSPI, you are using FlashSPI correct and not SPIFlash right? You are downloading from this page correct?
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-G31M-S2L

    You may just have to use @BIOS, if you do be sure you are at stock everything and close all programs before going forward with the flash

    I would go ahead and update to the latest BIOS as well (F9 or F10d), CPU support would be in all BIOS after F5 if that is the first one listed for your CPU. Just meaning you dont have to use only F5, you can use F5-F1x

    I don't have flash895.exe on my stick. In this self extracting archive that i've download from the page you paste (i download from that page earlier also) i have only 3 files:
    autoexec.bat
    flashspi.exe
    g31ms2l.f5
    Where i can get this "flash895.exe"
    I'm running on Linux so i don't like the idea of useing @BIOS.
    BTW. thanks for quick replays.
