    Angry GA-EG31M-S2 Bios problem..........

    Hello....
    Recently got a new MOBO for a friend of mine.... And it's lan wasn't working so i thought i could fix it up by flashing bios..
    1) Tried @BIOS...
    This is what i got while updating 4rm server...



    and this while uploading from the bios i downloaded from the gigabyte's site....



    When i save the bios using @bios the resultant bios his a size of 0 KB... WTH...

    2) QFlash....
    i create a bootable usb.. Qflash successfully showed the bios which i copied in USB..... but when i started flashing the bios it again gave me error "incorrect bios size"...... Qflash says it must be 512Kb where as the one i downloaded from web was of 1MB......

    3) Cpu-z
    Cpu-z was not showing my board details.... i updated the cpu-z but same result.... But in the boot up i screen i noticed one thing that my board model is GA-EG31M-S2 but in boot screen it was showing some model like G31M-ES2C FF.... and again the same wrong model in @bios......

    Then i downloaded the bios of G31M-ES2C and tried to flash it but again unsuccessful.... this time it says programming failed......

    Plz help me and sorry for poor language

    for flashing the bios with q-flash open the 1mb bios file and extract just the .fxx file to the usb stick

    why isnt the lan working? did you update lan drivers??

    makesure its the right bios for your board, i think you would fix lan problems with a driver update

    This board far from being new, where did you get it from? Might be that it was flashed with a wrong BIOS before.
