Face Wizard: Don't Bother

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I also posted this in the Intel Motherboard section, but I wanted to spread the word a bit...

I should have known better than to use frivolous bonus hardware utilities. My mainboard disc came with a little app called Face Wizard that's supposed to allow modification of the initial BIOS splash page. I was doing some XP tweaks and I figured 'why not'...I should have known something was up when a popup mentioning disabling the other Gigabyte apps came up, because I don't even have them installed!

Long story short, it screwed my BIOS so that every tweak I made, even thought staying stored, was ignored. I had to clear my CMOS, which was only a minor annoyance, but if it had went badly I could've hosed my system.

Not to mention...it didn't even work!

it aint that bad, it is more bad if you bios got borked but it sounds like it just wiped out settings, and most bios does that when you flash
