    Why do you suspect that there's a problem in your BIOS specifications? If you cannot get into your BIOS I can only suggest you clear CMOS. There is one other thing I can suggest. Try unplugging the power then hold the front panel power switch in for 20 seconds. Then plug it back in. Let us know if that works.

    Below in bold is the section that mostly concerns me when clearing CMOS. If It's what you already tried.
    Use the jumper method first.
    This is quoted from ----> In the clear CMOS section.
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/
    Clearing the CMOS

    CMOS is a Acronym for "Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor"

    Clearing the CMOS will erase the settings stored in the CMOS. It does not remove or change the BIOS itself, it only clears the user defined settings within the CMOS.

    This is a very useful thing to do, that everyone needs to know how to properly use . It can often help if you are having overclock issues, if your PC will not stop the booting cycle, Or some people choose to clear CMOS when they plan to flash. All of the above are normal times for you to use this function

    When you clear the CMOS you will often likely see the error message "CMOS Checksum Error" on the next reboot. Do not worry this is a normal thing, please enter BIOS at this stage and Load Optimized Defaults, set your DDR2 voltatge and reboot again to the BIOS. The error will be gone after that.

    Incase anyone is confused by that error message statement above, the Corrupt BootBlock/Scanning for BootBlock Error is the one you do not wish to see, the checksum error is fine and will be gone on a reboot or with one setting change in the BIOS as the board will update the DMI pool to match the CMOS and the checksums will then be matched

    First thing to do is to shut down your System, and let it rest for 30 seconds to a minute.

    Then it is wise to unplug the Power Supply from the wall. Be sure to also Unplug the USB cables of any powered USB devices!

    Open your case and find the "Clear CMOS" jumpers. It is a 2-pin jumper normally located just under the or between the PCI-E slots in P35 boards and under the last PCI-R Slot in P45 boards. Once you have found these jumper pins you will need to get a Hard Drive or Optical Jumper (The same type you used to use on IDE Drives) and place this jumper on the "Clear CMOS" pins. Then press and hold the Case Power on switch for a minute.

    Boards with A Clear CMOS button you may also Press and hold this for a minute as well after you do the power button. Sometimes this Clear CMOS button alone will work, other times it will not. So this FULL method is just to BE SURE it gets cleared for those users who have issues with other methods

    You may also want to remove the CMOS battery. This is optional and not Always necessary, but you may want to try it if you are having issues getting the CMOS Cleared.

    Now let the computer rest with this jumper on for 10-20 Minutes, this will ensure that the battery gets drained, and the CMOS is cleared. Some people will tell you it will only take a few seconds or a minute or two, but I find that to be false and it may indeed lead to a corrupt BootBlock and or a Bricked motherboard.

    So best to not try to cut corners when it comes to Clearing the CMOS, wait the full 20 Minutes

    When the 20 minutes is up, remove the jumper from the "Clear CMOS" pins, put the battery back in if you removed it, and close your case up. Plug the Power Supply back into the wall and restart the system. Then please follow above advice and Load Optimized Defaults, set DDR2 Voltages and Reboot

    My suspicion is based on the following comment, which I got when I described my problem:

    "I believe I found the culprit. It is in your bios. Let me know if you can access it?
    But I'm assuming your card is PCI-Xpress. The default setting in the bios is for pci. this should be set to pci-xpress in "Init Display First""

    As to your unplugging the power tip, I tried it and nothing changed.

    Finally, with your enouragement, I tried to clear my cmos. I managed to locate the spot, but when I tried to circuit it with a small screwdriver, I acknowledged that the place is covered, no pins seen. The cover doesn't seem to be removable. It's quite a surprise since the gigabyte manual explicitly shows and describes two pins.

    There is a jumper on the pins or the pins are missing?

    It looks like a flat surface, no pins no jumper

    Sould be between SYS_FAN2 and southbridge, just near the capacitor is that where you are looking?

    Look at your motherboard manual page 7 it shows clearly where the CLR_CMOS jumper is located on your motherboard. Here is a pdf of your motherboard manual. Give it a bit to download. -----> http://download.gigabyte.ru/manual/m...p43-es3g_e.pdf
