    Default Graphics card drivers constantly crashing after BIOS update

    Hello,

    I recently upgraded my GA-H87-D3H BIOS from the F5 version to the F8 version.

    Since doing so, the AMD R9 270x graphics card drivers on my computer have been constantly crashing. Literally, every 15-30 seconds an icon pops up in the Windows Notification area saying that the "Display Driver stopped responding and has recovered".

    Since upgrading my BIOS, my computer has become almost unusable. I've tried loading the 'Optimised Defaults' in the BIOS setup screen without success. I've tried re-flashing the BIOS and have tried several different graphics card drivers all without success. I've also tried downgrading back to the previous F5 BIOS version which used to work using both @BIOS and Q-Flash. However, when I try to do so I get an error saying in @BIOS that 'This motherboard is protected from using the BIOS. Please download the latest BIOS from the GIGABYTE website.'

    When I try to downgrade the BIOS in Q-Flash I receive a similar error.

    So I was wondering if anyone might know what would be causing this error or if it's possible to downgrade to the old BIOS firmware? :\

    Thank you very much for your help everyone!

    None of the Gigabyte flash utilities worked, they all blocked the old firmware.

    However I created a bootable DOS USB using the sticky guides and placed the FPT_DOS files on it as suggested by stasio. This let me flash the old BIOS image.

    Going back the old BIOS firmware instantly fixed the problem.

    Thank you!!
