    Unhappy GA-P55M-UD2 - Ran bios updater from the CD, now my computer has become unusable!

    It was working perfectly, until I decided to update the BIOS with the auto-update program on the CD that came with the motherboard. The first boot up after the update, the computer crashes completely from my desktop. Ever since I have not been able to do anything but get into the BIOS settings without it crashing. That includes; system restore, memory diagnostics, safe-mode, windows reinstall from CD, etc. Occasionally I can get it to the windows login screen before it crashes, but all I see is a black screen with my mouse cursor.<o:p></o:p>

    I’ve tried taking out the motherboard's battery for 10 minutes, as well as flashing the bios with no luck. I really liked my computer, someone tell me how to fix this! : (<o:p></o:p>

    The BIOS screen is the only thing that is stable at the moment. I've tried playing around with the settings (such as switching to fail-safe mode) but nothing really helps.

    and yah, it was @bios lol

    well its fine aslong as you can get into the bios,do you have a usb memory stick??? if you do then you need to format it to fat32 using this program,http://www.mediafire.com/?qy1mikzjyyq
    next is to download the latest bios for your mb which is http://www.fileden.com/files/2009/12...55mud2.f9c.zip extract it to desktop then drag the fxx file to the usb stick.....start up pc and when at splash screen press end and select usb and bios file to flash with and follow on screen guide. To use USB in Qflash you need "Legacy USB Storage Detect" Enabled in the Integrated Peripherals Page of the BIOS. You also need to leave the USB drive plugged in when you reboot to Qflash

    Tried that once before with no luck using Q-flash. It seemed to reinstall the bios properly, but the computer still crashes the same afterward.

    Though I would think its worth trying once more, I'll give it a shot once I get home (I'm on my work computer)

    I used the F7 bios from here GA-P55M-UD2 (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS

    and I think i tried switching over to ahci mode (the boot up screen prompts me if I want to switch to that mode everytime i reset the bios) and it makes things even worse. It can't even get to the BIOS settings or detect my drives without a hard reset by taking out the battery.

    A few more things to try before you do any re-flashing,in bios select load optimized defaults then save/exit/restart.then in bios carefully look through each page makesure sata drives are in ide mode,makesure you set your os hard drive as first boot device and your gpu as first initial display then save/exit/restart again and see if it crashes then.As for ahci dont worry about that aslong as its in ide that wont matter(you need drivers installed to enable ahci)
