    Help!

    I've tried to install the F11 BIOS, only to be told in Q-Flash that it was the wrong BIOS version, which I didn't understand as there wasn't more than one possible version to download for the board (ver 1.0 btw).

    I've downloaded the F12 BIOS and this time it says in Q-Flash "CHECKSUM = 7F00 Are you sure you want to update BIOS?" "Enter to continue or ESC to abort"

    Needless to say I've never ESC'd so fast in my life....what does that mean and what do I do now?

    Getting really fed up with this now :( :( :(

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    Oh dear, this is not going well...the page you have linked to won't seem to load up...

    This is where I got the link to download the BIOS I was having trouble with, is that the same file you are linking to?

    Yep that's the same place I downloaded it from...what on earth could that message be?

    I can't risk running anything with that flagging up...

    Any other ideas?

    I daren't try with @bios in case I wreck it, having read that you have to turn off anti-virus etc., sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

    Well I managed to get your link working, which unfortunately didn't work, I downloaded from another couple of servers in case one version was dodgy, no help there so I am officially stumped.

    If there is a Gigabyte bod in here offering help I am now madly waving a big flag at them.

    I can't understand why neither the auto fan speed and the bios update both seem to be knackered...just doesn't make any sense.

    I thought I'd post the information I see on POST regarding the BIOS, don't know whether these are any help or not...

    EX58-UD5 F7

    At the bottom of the post screen:
    05/11/2009-X58-ICH10-7A89QG05C-00

    Hope that makes sense to someone, I'm assuming it's the BIOS version...maybe I need to install an older version before I can update to the latest.

    That is the normal and correct message in Q-Flash. (The checksum value changes for each flash.) The message is fine. What you should have done at that point is to press ENTER and the flash would have started immediately and be completed in a few seconds.

    As soon as the flash is completed, press F10 to power off. Then power up the computer and press DELETE to get into the bios. Immediately, highlight LOAD OPTIMIZED DEFAULTS. (It is very important to do this and nothing else at that point.) Then highlight SAVE BIOS TO CMOS and press ENTER and then "y" and ENTER. Then EXIT the bios and let the computer boot all the way into Windows. Then do one task, like check your email or open a browser. Then exit Windows and power off. Then restart and press DELETE to get into BIOS. Now, and only now, adjust any BIOS settings you want to. Then SAVE BIOS TO CMOS and exit the bios. You must follow all of these steps each time you flash using Q-Flash. They are not hard, you just have to remember to do them. YOU WILL THEN BE FINE!!!

    Remember, only use Q-Flash to update bios. It is a great way to do it and very easy. I have updated my board each time there is a bios update and have done it many, many times without a single incident. Let us know how it turns out.
