    Default Suggestion, sticky thread for Gigabyte VGA Bios Flash Program for Gigabyte Videocards

    Here is a suggestion for a sticky thread to let people find this program quickly to determine Gigabyte videocard bios and then to flash new bios if desired.

    When I followed the official links in the Gigabyte website it did not take me here.


    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Graphics Accelerator - Utility

    Your link takes me to the VGA @BIOS utility page, isn't that where it is supposed to take you?

    Sorry, not sure if you meant that or not? If you meant a specific BIOS for your card, you need to go to the following page and look up your model
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Graphics Accelerator - BIOS

    I don't think we have enough supporters for a graphics card BIOS sticky, and they really don't update the BIOSes for them all that often anyway

    Default My chronological construction of the suggestion was faulty

    I gave the problem without describing it well and just included the solution.

    I have a Gigabyte GV-R5870SO-1G videocard. Here is the product website:

    GV-R587SO-1GD - GIGABYTE - Product - Graphics Accelerator - Specification

    When I select "bios" I get the following page:

    GV-R587SO-1GD - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Graphics Accelerator - BIOS=

    These are bios in a 7zip package.

    I downloaded the latest bios available to my desktop and extracted them and there they were. I did not know what to do so I clicked on that smiling man on the left side of the bios page who tells me that he will show me how to flash my bios.

    He then takes me to this page which really is not helpful.

    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Graphics Accelerator - BIOS - How to reflash VGA BIOS

    It was not until I had spent five days back and forth with Gigabyte support that I got the link supplied in my first post that solves everything.

    Ahh ok, I got ya now!

    Sorry you spent so many days trying to find an answer on this! Next time ask here and we can get you sorted much quicker than that.

    I suggest flashing VGA BIOSes from DOS using the latest ATIFlash

    Old Army Speak from my past.

    Wilco means "Will Comply"

    Most of the other acronyms like "BOHICA" are not for mixed company.

    You finally get back to the outpost soaking wet, freezing and it is 0200 HRS. Then you are told that you and your buddies (we are all just low level drones) get to pull sentry duty the rest of the night. Humor is the only energy available to get you through it.

    So the cry goes out, "Bend over, Here it comes again!" BOHICA

    Or start singing the Mickey Mouse song with different lyrics. Instead of M, I, C, K, E, Y you sing six letters (you can guess these) and then A, G, A, I, N. And then start singing the song with the new lyrics.

    I had some tough times but not like these guys have seen in the past decade. There was a documentary made of my military experience and it was called "Stripes".
