    Smile M61P-S3 F7g bios needed for ATI HD 5770 plus FHm bios for M57SLI-S4 Rev 2.0

    I have posted a tech support message using gigabyte.com but not received a reply in several days, so here is my issue:

    system details: GA-M61P-S3 motherboard, 650 watt antec power supply well in excess of video card requirements. Previously used an nvidia 9600gso. 4gb memory, mirrored raid. Using latest publically available patch F7f. Also use bios password.

    problem: System takes several minutes to boot with HD 5770. During this time system clicks about 10 times, DVD drive accessed numerous times. Once bios password is reached, system behaves normally, ATI card works normally (thus this is not a windows 7 driver problem).

    Attempted fixes: No overclocking. Problem still exists after turning other devices off in bios, including ide. Reinstall nvidia 9600 and problem goes away. Reflashed bios, cleared bios data both during flash and after flash then manually reentered settings

    On the russian gigabyte forums the same problem is described and the f7g bios fixed the issue: Google Translate

    Here is the translation for the last part, in case it is not fully translated:

    Riply, after changing BIOS F7F on F7g problem is solved! Running is the second attempt, ie 2-3 seconds, which is very happy! My thanks! Very grateful!

    Thus I would like the official giagabyte bios update F7g for the M61p-S3.

    This issue is also reported by others using other 5000 series ati cards on amd motherboards with nvidia chipsets.

    Indeed this problem also exists with the gigabyte m57sli-S4 rev 2.0 which was fixed with the FHm bios, which is also not posted. See http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php?topic=2116.0I also own one of these motherboards and thus would also like this FHm bios update.

    P.S.: Utimately, I wish the gigabyte would publicly post these beta fixes and list the issues that have been attempted to be fixed. Then others with 5000 series ATI would benefit.

    Thanks for quick reply.

    Diamond Radeon HD 5770 XOC (5770pe51gxoc). Current bios is ver012.019.000.003.000000
    (according to gpu-z).

    I am looking for motherboard bios: F7g or better for the m61p-s3 and FHm or better for the m57sli-s4 rev 2.0.

    Also have a request into diamond, but also no response yet.

    Thanks again.

    Thumbs up Re: M61P-S3 F7g bios needed for ATI HD 5770 plus FHm bios for M57SLI-S4 Rev 2.0

    Late Friday night I did receive an email from gigabyte with the attached bios F7g for the m61p-s3. My bootup problems were instantly gone. Preliminary tests inducation no addition issues. No problems with the fur GPU stress utility, Windows 7 64-bit WEI scorce still 7.5, 7.5 for the two graphic tests.

    I will post any additional results.

    It is a factory overclocked card (930 core 1300 mem) that works well with the downloaded ati 10.6 catalyst drivers. I may overclock the card further, but only after it is in use for a month. The m61p-s3 is pci-e 1.x. And I have seen the video scores go up by 0.1 when a 3.5 quad took the place of a 3.0 dual core CPU. Lack of complete containment of GPU exhaust is not ideal, but it is a relatively cooler card.

    Thanks for your help

    Nice to see you got things going!

    Can you please post this BIOS for us here, so I can add it to the BIOS thread for others. Thanks

    Here are the bioses I was provided by gigabyte. I and others have requested that gigabyte post these, but that has not yet happened.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Conditions for use:<o:p></o:p>
    1) I would use only if you are having boot problems with an ATI 5000 series video card using the listed motherboards, otherwise you are taking unnecessary risks.<o:p></o:p>
    2) No guarantees that it will work. Make certain that you know how to restore your old bios if it makes it worse.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Notes: Write down you current bios settings. Clear the DMI and PNP Data Pools when you flash. After you flash, load the fail safe defaults, then load the optimized defaults, then put in your bios settings. Ctrl+F1 from the main menu if you need advanced chipset settings. Ideally your computer should be connected to a battery backup system (UPS), in case the power fails.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Gigabytes links are temporary so these links will ultimately fail. I would prefer to post these files but the tweaktown 150kb attachment limit is too small for zipped files. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    For the M61P-S3 rev 1.0 the proper link is http://ggts.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList/949658/m61ps3.f7g <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    For the M57SLI-S4 rev 2.0 the link is http://ggts.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList...8/m57sls42.fhm
