    I can't seem to do it, I am following the instructions to the letter, but my BIOS will not recover from the backup BIOS, it just boots right into windows. arg!! I even tried flashing BIOS FB and it fails as well.

    Another thing, when they talk about flash895, I don't see that executable when I download the FFb BIOS, but I see the FLASHSPI.exe file. So do I just upload the FLASHSPI.exe and the FFb BIOS file and the autoexec.bat file into my MS-DOS floppy?

    I've tried to flash the BIOS using a floppy disk and I also copied the BIOS file from Asia instead of America and I still get the same error at 64KB "Flash Erase Failed at FF5FFFFC".

    What does that mean?

    Now I have tried to flash the BIOS 4 times, and the last 3 times, I don't get an error like I did the first time, but the application is still not flashing the BIOS with FFb it just starts loading the BIOS file and then the PC just reboots.

    I figured it out, if I don't put any switches with flashspi then I get the error "FF5FFFFC". If I do put some switches like /C /R etc... then I don't get an error my my PC just reboots. I then tried Q-flash thinking that it might work but I am still getting an error. It's almost like it cannot erase the old BIOS.

    I even tried shorting out pin 5-6 multiples times, nothing, I tried shorting pin 4 and 7 and it recovered from the backup BIOS, and it still shows FD. So I am guessing that the backup BIOS is FD as well? That really sucks... I have removed the CMOS battery, unplug the power from the PSU, shutdown the PC and using a jumper and clearing the CMOS. I will leave it over night and try again in the morning.

    Well started up my system again this morning to no prevail. Now I am thinking that it might be my backup BIOS is that messed up. I tried shorting out pin 4 and 7 again this morning and I did see a screen pop up but it was so quick that I did not have a chance to read it, but what I did see was something like NO DPA available, flash BIOS from backup successfully or something like that. But I still cannot flash the BIOS and also I cannot save any CMOS settings to the BIOS.

    Should I try @BIOS and see if I can flash FFb? I really don't want to, but that something that I have not tried yet!

    Hello
    I dont know if the bios is gone .or whatever or if you can still get into the bios or have the gigabyte loading graffix pop up but.
    Load optimised defaults.
    Save and reload to bios screen.enter MIT to check all the figures are as they should be and that there isnt a red screen when you enter MIT saying there was a failure to boot.
    If there is a red screen try loading optimised defaults again and make sure there is no red screen.

    Try updating the bios with legacy usb turned off or on..try both and see what happens

    If you can get to the gigabyte logo screen only try the flash from there
    I allways used a front usb for it,make sure the usb stick is..fat 32 I think..()

    It should look like this..by like this I mean it should have as in my case 3 bioses or however many u have and the flash sp1 application on it in the root drive.
    Dont worry about the other files you see there or the red lines..thats my bios image and boards bioses stick.

    That hdd is very tiny also for win7

    I think that the message was No HPA available which probably refers to the Hidden Partition Area and this is where some motherboards store a saved copy of the bios. This is sometimes an option in the bios where you can enable or disable saving a copy of the bios in the HPA.

    Using @BIOS for flashing has bricked many older motherboards when the flash failed.
    The last resort procedure has saved some bricked motherboards.
    Nothing has worked so far and bricking your board now might be the final straw.

    I was helping in another thread last year where the OP couldn't borrow any hardware for testing. His symptoms were that his motherboard wouldn't boot and his only choice was to take it to a local repair shop. I told him to bring his power supply with him for additional testing. It turned out that he didn't have to RMA his motherboard; it was the power supply that was causing his problems.

    thanks all for your replies. I have lent the system to Vinster (friend of mine) and he is going to try his luck with it. He tried a different PSU and that did not help. He also tried flashing the BIOS with an the old AWDFLASH application and that did not work. I don't get any red alerts in MIT at all, never did. Legacy USB hmmm... I had to have mine on so that I can use my USB keyboard, but Vinster has a PS2 keyboard so he can try with the setting being OFF. I will check with him on that later. Hopefully he will be inputting an update shortly. The HDD is small yes, I just used 1 platter drive that I had available, it will be changed with a Kingston SSD 128GB very shortly after I get this BIOS issue sorted out.

    The last resort procedure I think I have done it multiple times last night and this morning before bringing the PC to Vinster. Can someone share exactly how to do it? I've read many different ways of doing it. Like some say your system needs to be ON before shorting out the pins, some say that the system needs to be OFF before shorting out the pins and when still shorting out the pins then power on the PC... that's how I have done it,but maybe that is not the right way?

    Vinster tried flashing FA, FB and FFb and they all fail. Also I have never been able to save the CMOS settings to BIOS (using F11). I type the name that I want to safe my CMOS and hit the "enter" key and my screen just goes back and never saves my CMOS with the name that I picked.
