    Default Problem with GA-MA770-UD3 and AMD Phenom II X6 1055T - post issue

    Hi,
    I recently purchased Rev 2.1 of this board. After turning on the PC, I get the "ok" beep, and the system proceeds to POST...but then freezes at the Gigabyte screen, or sometimes goes to a blinking cursor and hangs. I cannot get to the BIOS or Q-flash to update to FJ BIOS; clearing the CMOS has no effect, either. Was hoping there was some kind of workaround to get into the BIOS/Q-flash? Really want to avoid having to buy an older chip to flash this board. Thanks.

    LP

    I think that is your only option.

    Not sure about AMD personally, but I do think I just saw a similar thread where users mentioned old cheap CPU's for this purpose could be bought new for $30 or less used on ebay.

    Ya, that was it! A cheap sempron is what they mentioned I believe!

    I keep cheap celerons around for Intel 775 boards for just the same purpose, grabbed two used on ebay for $8 each

    I hear that. Looking forward to tweaking this board. The initial setup of the hardware was a breeze. Have a good one

    Well good luck finding a cheap CPU to get going!

    And of course, enjoy your board too once you get to use it!

    Thumbs up Solution: Problem with GA-MA770-UD3 and AMD Phenom II X6 1055T - post issue

    Hi LP

    I had the same issue with GA-MA785GPMT-UD2H and finally resolved it without a different processor. (I did have to dig up an old FDD)

    The process was as follows.
    0. Copy new bios onto floppy and attach FDD to new mobo (Flash drives make BIOS hang)
    1. On new MOBO, reset BIOS by shorting Clear CMOS header
    2. Power Down and restart (MOBO tends to loop unless you power down)
    3. Wait for the corrupt cmos error screen to come up
    4. Press DEL to enter BIOS (this was a fool proof way to get into BIOS setup, there may be other ways)
    5. Press F8 to enter QFlash (Entering Qflash from post page hangs entering from BIOS setup works)
    6. Select A drive
    7. Select the new bios and wait to install
    8. When complete press F10 to shutdown.

    Your new BIOS should work now.
