hello everyone

just joining forum, and i need some help, hoping someone can help share some information

1. on station-drivers(http://www.station-drivers.com/page/gigabyte/ga-x58a-ud7.htm), they have final FD (FD11) bios for GA-X58A-UD7 rev2, wondering if anyone try that one yet ? i am thinking to try it because gigabyte haven't update their BIOS lately
if someone already try it, do you recommend it?
i know if there nothing problem with my current BIOS, why do i have to bother to update to new one, well actually recently i have weird issue with the board... BIOS POST booting process randomly taking longer than usual, and then on BIOS menu, i got random crash when i enter M.I.T menu.

also i dunno if someone have same issue with me or not, but on Gigabyte BIOS screen, if i press F8 it hang... just showing blinking "_"

i reflash the bios again with FC and so far it return to normal condition


2. there is somewhere in BIOS setting to save BIOS image to HDD, is that option work with AHCI setting ?
because when i tried to save BIOS image to HDD, it didn't show my HDD (WD Caviar Black 750GB+1TB and SATA3 1TB)
haven't try with USB though

thanks in advance

1. Sounds like a DMI pool data corrupt. That happened to me if if I forgot to clear CMOS and to load optimized defaults after replacing hardwares such as memory modules, Graphic cards, storage etc. The BIOS will also act up if load up CMOS profile saved using different BIOS version, too lazy to start all over with the OC testings biggrin.gif

2. I was curious too long time ago, had no success. It is easier just to download the BIOS I want and save it in the disk tongue.gif

A year ago i read a ton of threads about it even from Corsair site, where they stated that as long as Dram voltage and qpi/vtt stay within 0.5volts, it is safe.

By the way, YES, you are right regarding my XMP it states:
Profile DDR Voltage 1.65v
Profile QPI VOltage 1.6v

A year ago i read a ton of threads about it even from Corsair site, where they stated that as long as Dram voltage and qpi/vtt stay within 0.5volts, it is safe.

Of course, whenever i find some time, i intend to lower the speed of my memory to 1600 and try an even lower qpi/vtt voltage, hopefuly below 1.35 volts...

The XMP voltage is correct. At 1,866 MHz (3 x 2 GB) should be able to stabilize with QPI/VTT not more than 1.175v Dram 1.55v for Dom GT. It was a common mistake to keep bumping up voltage to maintain stability.

I know this is an old post and was having the same problems. For most overclockers don't need this feature at all. I have a habit not to turn PC off but let sleep/hibernate at the set period of time to do its things. So when I came back days or weeks later, simply wake the PC from hibernation and pick up from where I left it.

PC refuses to enter sleep/hibernate; type this 'powercfg -requests' to see what device and driver are preventing it to enter S1/S3.
Command prompt: c:\users\administrator>powercfg -requests

You should get 'none' or windows will tell you what device, then to disable that device/driver that is preventing it to enter S1/S3.

Edit: aslso type this c:\windows\system32>powercfg -availablesleepstates to make sure you didn't disable S1/S3 in Windows or what the BIOS/motherboard is giving you.


Fail to come out from hibernation and debug code stuck at E1/F1

It turned out my QPI/Vtt was too low, though the overclock was stable with the voltage but the BIOS didn't like it. Increased the QPI/Vtt, problem went away. Notified Technical Support and they sent an updated BIOS, never seen that happened ever since.

Hope it helps for those looking for an answer wink.gif

@Ken1649
thanks for reply

after looking more on the net (from here : http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,4856.75.html), i found out backup bios using factory bios by default (FB in my case)
so probably when problem happen Backup bios will kickin with FB optimized settings , so it can be problematic

i haven't try it to flash my backup bios to match my main bios, as the it working normal right now, incase people have problem with BIOS, maybe it help with your issue ^^

Should flash the back up BIOS after updating the main one to avoid compatibility issues when second BIOS different version kicks in. Simply ALT + F12 will flash the back up after re-starting PC. Go into BIOS by pressing F9 should see both must be identical updated version.

ah ok, i never thought i need to flash backup bios too, actually i just know about it now. as gigabyte didn't mention about flashing backup bios in their manual or guide to flashing backup bios on their bios
its more like hidden gigabyte tech. menu

i will flash backup from now on
thanks!

Gigabyte should come out with SMART DUAL BIOS to anticipate things like this and will cause users days to troubleshoot. They have SMART of everything excepts this tongue.gif
