    Default my gigabyte ex58 ud5 is killed after bios update!!

    dear people
    after updating the right BIOS for my Gigabyte EX58 UD5 (rev 1.0) motherboard to the latest stable version (F12) using the windows upgrade utility something went wrong i think. since then whenever I reboot the computer just hangs now at the DOS post screen. it keeps on restarting over and over again...i cant get into anything...i see the gigabyte postscreen and then just restarts...Why did this happen? I ensured it was the correct revision and model..? ps..i already tried to get into QFLASH (END).. nothing works...and getting into bios (DEL) also not..even pushing clr cmos on the back of the board doesnt do anything...

    I do have a good bios version on a usb stick now...but i cant use it if i cant use bios update...doesnt this motherboard have a dual bios or such kind? and if so..how do i activate the backup then?

    How can I fix this? Any help would be appreciated...

    Please try to clear CMOS and power on it. It may keep power on and reset. just leave it for few mins and it is supposed to have auto bios recovery. If not, you may need to have your m/b repaired. next time if you would like to flash bios, it's better to use Qflash not utility in windows.

    Yes, please try clearing the CMOS using the long method mentioned here in post #2
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    If that does not work, please try removing your memory and put only one stick in slot one, and see if it will then start. Sometimes this will change the DMI pool and allow it to start.

    If you still do not have any luck, don't give up yet there is a few other things for you to try, just giving you the easy ones first.

    Please go ahead and clear the CMOS using the long method I mentioned in my reply. You do not have jumpers to short, but follow the rest about removing the battery and wait 20 minutes or so.

    While you do this, go ahead and remove all memory except one stick in any white slot, this way the DMI pool will need rebuilt as this can help as well.

    If you don't have any luck let us know, and I can tell you how to short the MAIN BIOS chip, otherwise you will have to RMA the board

    there is a way to wipe the main bios and force the back up bios to reflash the main but you have to short certain bios pins and if you get it wrong you could ruin the bios chips im not sure what pins you need to cross to do it

    it works again...!!! but not without some luck!!
    !!..after all ur help i was all bricked....as it still restarted over and over again...but by accident i kicked out the usb cable of my steelseries xai mouse...and hourah...it booted...so weird....i know my mouse has a internal screen (and processor) in it on the underside..so it gets power from the usb...but weirdest thing is that my also steelseries (with illimunated keys..lolz) keyboard does work...other mouses (also with ulimination lolz)dont give problems... i tried...this problem never happened before my hickup with my bios last month...it worked all fine...does the mouse use to much power from board with bootup? ps..i updated the bios to latest version F12 with qflash..put bios all on automatic optimized status. Just as mentioned in ur HOW TO flash steps...
    so..my board does work...but only if i detach my expensive gaming mouse from usb...when i am in windows 7 64bit i re-attach it..and all works flawlessly...ps. led status hangs on code 65 (ps2 mouse recognition?)before restarting with mouse attached.tnks for ur help.
    ps..i do have a new corsair HX750 powerunit and 4x 7200rpm sata hdd's and one GTX 275 and a creative xi-fi fatality and thermaltake cpu watercooling on the I920 D-core and 5x12cm fans and 6x2GB kingston 1600mhz ddr3 memory..

    if its a usb mouse when you updated the bios it would set your usb keyboard and mouse back to default ps2 mouse/keyboard so you need to set them to usb again in bios or use spare ps2 mouse/keyboard

    Glad to see you got it without having to short anything!

    Check what Wazza300 said above (Enable USB KB/Mouse), and if that does not help try disable/enable USB Storage Detect
