What can I do with the new one so that I dont have this problem again? Is there anything to prevent this?

    Barrney, I am not sure I understand your question. Can you elaborate?

    Hey now, no need to switch teams! This can happen with ANY manufacturer, and you are MUCH more likely to be able to save yourself with a Gigabyte board anyway due to the Dual BIOS. Asus has NONE

    Pm sent on your last questions. Anyone else reading this, always stress test your system for stability, that is the best way to ensure that corruption of any kind (BIOS or File System) does not happen

    EX58UD3R, ver.1.6, 6GRam OCZ DDR3, I7920, Galaxy GTS250

    Same problem, I bought the upgrade components from Microcenter on 12/29/2009, the system was perfectly stable until 01/10/2010 when the infinite loop scanning bios on hard drive error started to happen after a normal restart of Windows 7. I tried everything I could think of or suggested on the net over the last 2 days. I even bought a SATA DVD RW hopping that it will recover from the included dvd (I had an IDE one before and that one didn't work). Would be nice to find what exactly can be done when the BIOS gets corrupted this way. The system seems to be fine, except a bad BIOS that we can't re-flash. The board is going back to the store after I lost a lot of time with it - not happy.

    I feel your pain. I had purchased mine from Newegg. I was able to get a refund and went to Fry's and bought the same board but version 1.6 and no more problems. It is working perfectly since September 09. Even thou lsdmeasap advised me to update the bios, I did not do it, Afraid I would mess up the board. This is my first and only build, and dont want to mess it up. I see you had a version 1.6, hmmm Don't know what to tell you. Wish you good luck with your next one. I purchased the 1 time exchange warranty from Fry's for like $35 just in case. It's good for three years. I think with I7 boards, as unpredictable as they are, it's well worth it. The board was a little bit more expensive there ( like $15 after $30 rebate) plus I had to travel 1 hour but it beats the 2 to 3 weeks wait from Newegg. Well i hope you dont have any more problems. I know how frustrating it is. Good Luck!! Make sure to post your solution so that it will help others.... Contact lsdmeasap if you keep having problems, HE IS THE MAN!!!!!

    Forgot to mention to stress test your system. I did it for like 12 hours and it passed with flying colors. Note: Havent overclocked my board as of yet. Maybe later, who knows. Also Gigabyte support is excellent.
