    Default Gigabyte X570 Gaming X Bios Fail

    Hi all. I have an X570 Gaming X mobo with a Ryzen 3700x. The mobo came with Bios F2 which i updated to F3 then F4j, when Bios F4 was released i installed that but all the USB's initialised from post, then they switched off and the system just hung with the Windoze 10 thing circling around and nothing else. I re-installed Bios F4j and the system booted up to desktop, the same when i tried F3. Now that Bios F5a is released i tried that but again it failed after initialising the USB's, i also noticed that the X570 chipset fan stopped working. Has anyone else with a Gaming X mobo managed to install either F4 or F5a?

    I've tried installing the new Bios through the white usb port at the rear, a normal usb port at the front (F3 and F4j install without problems). I even used the @Bios utility with bios's i downloaded from the Gigabyte site (not through @Bios) but still F4 and F5a do not work. Any help please.

    Regards

    F3 works? Use it, why seek adventures?

    Hi. It's more of why an updated Bios does not work when it's supposed to. Is it a fault with the board or a fault with an official Bios for the board. Is it something Gigabyte should rectify, or should i just except that any Bios officially released for my mobo, may or may not work, if that's the official line from Gigabyte then i would have to except it, but it isn't. It shouldn't matter whether my mobo is cheap or expensive, if there is a problem with the Bios that they have officially released, i should have reasonable expectations that that Bios should function for the mobo it is designed for. If there was no reason to update the Bios, and as you said, if i'm happy with F3 then stick with it, but officially released Bios's have a purpose which correct any errors in previously released Bios's. I do except that it's dangerous to flash a Bios and the onus is on the user, but if i can successfully flash F3 and F4j all day long without problems, then i am sure it's not something i'm doing in error.

    Thanks for your kind reply

    Regards

    You have the same board and cpu as me,you have done the same steps,and have the same problem as me,I'm still on f3,I found out from another forum that because of the changes in the new bios you have to reset the cmos after flashing with the newer bios,I haven't done it with f5a because I'm waiting for a non beta bios,one without the letter after the number.

    Well i cleared the cmos after updating to f5b,loaded optimized defaults,checked to see if i had the right boot order,but it still wont post,all i get is spinning progress circle for ages,but if i flash it back to f3 it boots up and posts to windows without any problems,I'm at a lose why i can't update my bios past the f3 bios.

    I flashed the new F10a bios for X570 Gaming X,restarted then turned off,pulled power cable out,held power button to drain,cleared CMOS, restarted and loaded default settings and changed some settings as i had them for F3,restarted and windows wouldn't post,it just sits on bios boot screen with spinning progress indicator for ages,turned off and restarted,entering bios to check settings,restart to windows and got repair startup with spinning indicator for so long that i just powered it off,put USB in with F3 and flashed that,when i entered bios after restart i loaded default settings,saved and restarted and windows booted up straight away,so it looks like I'm stuck on F3.

    ust an update - i had another go at flashing F10a,got the constant spinning progress on bios boot screen trying to post to windows,restarted and got the repair notice at the bios screen, after that i just selected to restart and to my surprise it booted to windows,went back into bios settings for fast/secure boot and it did the forever spinning progress on bios boot screen again,went through the repair and startup and it posted to windows,I'm not touching anything else,i have XMP to profile 1,that gives me 3600Mhz,fast/secure boot,and csm disable and that's it.

    I put a ticket into gigabyte and this is the reply i got back*

    Hi Sir


    We cannot duplicate the problem as you mentioned after testing for several days.

    We're not sure if there is any other app or other causing the problem.

    If you don't mind, you may use F3 bios with current OS or update to latest bios and reinstall Win10 to use.

    Sorry about that.
    I donlt understand what app they are taliking about,it is a new build,but after trying f10c it wouldn't post to windows,but f3 does.
