    Thanks all for the replies. The location listed above is where I downloaded the BIOS file and it's not working. I also tried a different USB thumb drive, the 2nd one I tried was a 2GB one formatted in FAT. I also tried a 8GB one and that one was formatted in FAT32 and it still won't work. I don't have a floppy drive unfortunately to try flashing that way. I have also tried a modded BIOS file and that won't work as well. I guess the only thing left to do is a full CMOS clear. I will try to find a jumper and clear the CMOS for 20 minutes or more and see what happens, if that does not work, I guess I will have to leave it for 24 hours? That seems a long time?

    A jumper block off of an old IDE hard drive will work.
    Don't ask why, but sometimes an extended bios clear is required to clear up a bios problem.
    In theory, it should only take 5 - 10 seconds or less.
    There are many examples in the forum where it took 20 minutes or up to 24 hours for the CMOS clear to work.

    There is a last resort option if the bios clear doesn't work, but there is a risk of permanently bricking your motherboard if your hand slips and you accidentally cause a short circuit.

    I am doing the full CMOS clear right now. Just started actually so I will leave it alone for 1 hour or so then put everything back to normal and see if I can flash the BIOS again using my 2GB FAT formatted USB drive.

    What's funny is that while I was looking for a jumper for the clr_cmos I found a floppy drive but not sure it it works plus no floppy's around here anymore. I threw them all out years ago

    Well I left it alone for about 2.5 hours and that did not help at all. I guess my next step is too leave it alone for 24 hours or so

    I will leave it alone for 24 hours, but after that if that does not work....

    "There is a last resort option if the bios clear doesn't work, but there is a risk of permanently bricking your motherboard if your hand slips and you accidentally cause a short circuit." How do I do that??

    Several more things to try if the extended CMOS clear doesn't help.
    1. Beg, borrow, or steal a floppy disk, you will also need a floppy data cable.
    2. Download several different bios versions but download from a different Gigabyte source, for example Europe or Asia.
    3. Remove your motherboard from the computer case, set the mobo on a cardboard box next to your computer case.
      Make sure that all cables and wires are secure and that your cpu heatsink is not loose.
      Boot with a minimal hardware setup: one memory module, cpu, keyboard, graphics card and floppy or usb drive.

    If all these steps fail, you should have the motherboard removed from the case when using the last resort.

    What is the brand, model number and age of your power supply?

    I will find a floppy cable and download the BIOS file from another country and try again. The brand of PSU is an Ultra LSP 450 and it's 2 months old. My GPU is a Asus 6670, HDD is a 40GB Fujitsu and RAM is Patriot PC2-9200 2GB kit (2x1gb). Case is an Corsair 200R brand new. CPU is an Core 2 Duo E7500.

    Actually I really doubt a floppy will solve your problem... Is this a used board?

    Yes it is a used board, I bought it from ebay. I contacted the seller and ask him how he flashed the BIOS and he doesn't remember since it's been so long. Bios FD was released in 2009. :)

    I think I would ask him for a refund of your money as apparently it's messed up.... There is a way you can unbrick the bios but I'm not sure how to do it...

    EDIT: I would almost guess they used @BIOS to flash the bios...Which you should never do with these boards... He may have selective memory on this issue...LOL

    EDIT 2: You just might need that floppy... Read this from the Bios flashing guide... You do have a Dual Bios

    EDIT 3: Might have a look at this thread...http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ng-failed.html

    Code:
    Attempting to Recover From a Bad Flash or Corrupt BootBlock
    
     Corrupt BIOS BootBlock? It can happen to the best of us!!
     
    There is but only a FEW things you can try to do before you will have to RMA your board if you get a Bad BootBlock or Scanning Hard Drive for BIOS error message. 
    
    This can be causes by any number of things, @BIOS, a Bad Flash, a Flash to the incorrect BIOS, a Power interruption during a flash... The list goes on.
     
    Here is a few things you can try in a attempt to recover your BIOS. 
    
    *NOTE*
     You MUST have a Floppy Disk Drive installed and set as First Boot Device, BEFORE your system failure. It will not help you at all to try to install one after a BIOS error in a attempt to fix it with these methods.
     
    1. Make a bootable floopy disk by formatting a floppy disk and choosing Create a MS-DOS startup disk in the format options
     
    2. Copy the Award flash utility (Flash895) & BIOS file (.Fxx) to the floppy disk
     
    3. Create an autoexec.bat with “flash895 bios_file_example_name.Fxx” in the content of the batch file, (without the quotes “ ”). 
    
    Yes the space is there and is necessary! 
    (Example: flash895 gap35ds4.F12)
     
    4. Boot the system with the floppy (it will take a few minutes before screen comes out)
     
    5. Re-flash the BIOS & reboot.
     
    Here is how to create an autoexec.bat File
     1. In Windows, open NotePad
     2. In NotePad, write “flash895 gap35ds4.F12″ (without the quotes “ ”)
     3. Save the file as autoexec.bat
     
    
    Or
     
    The AWARD BIOS does not automatically restore the BIOS information to the BootBlock. You will need to write the commands necessary to flash the BIOS into the Autoexec.bat file. 
    
    The system will run the Autoexec.bat file, which contains the flash instructions.
     
    How To:
     
    1. Create a bootable floppy disk as noted above
     
    2. Copy the BIOS file (.Fxx) and flash utility (Flash895) to the disk
     
    3. Create an text file with any standard text editor and add the following lines (Name it Autoexec.bat after editing)
     
    @ECHO OFF
     
    flash895 gap35ds4.F12 /py/sn/f/cc/r
     
    The AWDFLASH.EXE (Flash895) command switch modifiers used above are explained below:
     /CC = clear CMOS data after programming.
     /CD = clear DMI data after programming.
     /CP = clear PnP (ESCD) data after programming.
     /QI = use BIOS I.D. string from BIOS .bin file.
     /R = reset system after programming.
     /PY = program flash memory.
     /F = Flash BIOS
     /SN = don't save existing BIOS.
     
    * FYI FlashSPI Switches *
     
    
    Quote:
     
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    /C - Clear DMI pool data
     /D - Load CMOS defaults
     /E - Clear CMOS
     /R - Reboot System
     /S - Save Original 
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    To view all of the modifiers for AWDFLASH.EXE, type the following at a DOS prompt:
     
    AWDFLASH.EXE /?
     
    And finally, if all of that fails here is one last page, with similar but more in depth methods, keep in mind you will need to change some of the commands listed on this page to match the files you will be using. Change them similar to th above ones. Like if .BIN is discussed it means use .Fxx in it's place, if awardflash is discussed use Flash895 in it's place. The page was written for older BIOS's but all of the same still applies in this instance of Flash Recovery

    BIOS Recover Method Via Manually Invoking BACKUP BIOS Auto-Recovery
     Using Power Supply - On/Off Switch It is possible to make the BIOS Auto-Recovery kick in (Dual BIOS) and re-flash the MAIN BIOS with the contents of the BACKUP BIOS.
     
    This is a simple and easy method for anyone to try before having to resort to other more difficult methods, or a RMA.
     
    1. Shut off the power supply using the switch on the back of the PSU, wait 10-15 seconds.
     2. Press and hold the case Power On swtich, then while still holding turn on the power supply from the switch on the rear.
     3. Still holding the case power on switch, the board will start, once it does release the case power on switch and shut off the power supply via the switch on the read of the unit. (Do the latter two parts as quickly as you can once the board starts)
     4. The board will shut down.
     5. Turn the power supply back on using the switch on the rear of the unit.
     6. Turn on the motherboard by pressing the case power on button.
     
    Once the board starts this time you should see the Gigabyte splash screen, or POST page, then the Auto-Recovery from Dual BIOS will kick in. You will see a checksum error, and then recovery from BACKUP BIOS will begin. Once it is done reboot your machine and enter the BIOS and load optimized defaults then save/apply/reboot back to BIOS. 
    
    Now you are done, and will be using whatever BIOS was in your BACKUP BIOS, From there you can attempt whatever you were previously trying, or update your BIOS to the latest version. 
    
    If updating please use Qflash!!
     
    This only applies to Dual BIOS Motherboards.
