    Hi all,

    This is my first Gigabyte board. Anyhow, here is what is happening (just watch the vid):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-jURmpBuTk

    So I've left a couple of things out during the video. At first I just got into BIOS and checked it out. I was trying to find what speed the default memory was so I could set it to 1200. However I never made it that far w/o it freezing. Then I guess the BIOS got/was messed up because after a couple of POSTs to BIOS and the "normal screens" I started getting POSTs to the Dual Bios screen. That is when I read to reset CMOS, take it down to one stick of RAM, and then try and Flash your BIOS with Qflash. That is where I was when this video was made. I haven't done anything from here.

    Thanks all,

    Sam

    Hello.

    I did look at your video you posted on another forum.

    I can point you to try:

    The error points to:

    1. Bad or old CMOS battery.
    2. BIOS update.
    3. Disconnecting power from computer without shutting down computer
    Reset BIOS back to defaults and see if that fixes the issue.

    Buy a new BIOS battery.

    If you downloaded the Q-flash/BIOS update it maybe corrupt try redownloading.

    If that is your PSU you keep pressing down and it keeps restarting the computer then you can put that under continualy bad shut downs,this can cause a mulitude of hardware issues.
