    Thanks Vin, I'll read up on it.

    I did manage to get one of the boards working with a normal image (haven't tried my updated one). But I've yet to give the other boards a proper go as I'm really busy in college atm.

    I'll post the details of how I fixed them when I get the time, probably in a week or two.

    Cheers!

    I don't really understand your issue, you want to set your resolution to 1280x768 but your wallpaper is 1024x768? Win8 on an old motherboard, I'd almost think its a compatibility issue. are there any missing devices in the device manager?

    EDIT: can you maybe post a screenshot of your issue?

    If your mobo has dual bios, change to backup bios. If not then you can google about making bios rescue disk (bootable floppy , cd/dvd or usb stick), wich has the working bios from manufacturers site and flash tool with command file that executes the flash (blind flash) and hope the bootblock part of your board works.

    Other option is to remove the bios chip and flash it with physical flasher.

    Exclamation Re: How to fix "dead" dual BIOS motherboard if flashing failed

    The techniques in this thread can only be attempted with a Gigabyte motherboard that has two physical bios chips.

    We know absolutely nothing about your laptop's hardware setup or what problems make you think that fixing a supposedly dead bios will make everything OK.

    Create a new thread in the Gigabyte forum if you have a Gigabyte laptop and provide a detailed description about how your laptop stopped working and tell us what the model name/number is for your laptop.

    Do NOT post anything further in this thread.
    This is NOT a troubleshooting thread.
